How I'd start learning machine learning again (3 years in)




[ad_1]

Three years ago I started studying machine learning online in my bedroom.

Two things are for sure:

1. I know a lot more than when I started.
2. There’s still plenty more to learn.

This video shares what I’d do/tell myself if I was starting again.

    Hi Daniel, just want to say that ive been following your vlogs for quite some time and love them. i can relate so much from your experience as im having difficulties to keep up with learning ML since i started from more than 2 years ago. all of your advices hit me hard and those are exactly what i needed to hear. Thank you for the wake up call and now im so pumped up try again and change my strategy in learning. Keep inspiring Daniel! From Malaysia 🇲🇾

    Your article with this video embedded on it popped up on my Google homepage.

    Totally fell in love with you a bit when you said, “First of all, more important than any resource is to get rid of the “I can’t learn it” mentality. That’s bullsh*t.” ❤️

    You’re totally right!

    I feel like it’s really unfortunate that so many people feel this way about mathematics (I’m a math major of extraordinarily average intelligence imo), I believe that we’re missing a lot of new genius because of that mentality.

    Also, that creative genius gets killed from the pressure of college, dry lectures, coursework and exams.

    Learning fuel by joy is also one of the most important thing that I have learn in my life. There is nothing that can stop you if you're fuel by your curiosity, imagination and most importantly, your joy.

    Do you think you would have gotten the ML internship and the job if you didn't have a college degree?
    I'm 18 and not planning to go to college. Do you think I can get into the ML field through self-study?

    As much as I hate to admit it, You hit the nerve and I have to start learning to master what I already have and start actually learning. Thank you ❤

    Great content Daniel! The video + blog post combo is super handy. The Coursera ML course by Andrew Ng is a usual suspect for people getting into AI. Any specific reason for leaving it out? I've included it in my personal ML curriculum – so just wanted to pick your brains on this.

    Udacity or Coursera who is the best ?

    Thanks for sharing your experience Daniel! You don't know to how many engineers you're showing the right path. Cheers to that and KEEP LEARNING & KEEP CREATING! 😉

    Bro, I started to watch your videos cause I was interested in machine learning. I bought a Udemy`s course to learn it, now you're my teacher.
    Totally coincidental.

    Thank you for making this video. It's really inspiring especially the part where you advise us to take the leap and to start on working on our projects to get insight and get out from tutorial hell. Can you give us examples on what type of projects you can work on ? I mean, I'm an engineering student in the field of Machine Learning (to be precise Pattern Recognition) but I don't know what can I work on as a personal project. And I'd like to ask you some advice to get an internship in the major companies in this field (Tesla, Amazon …). Thank you !

    Hi Daniel, I look up to your journey, wishing you the best of luck. I would like to mention that I started my ML journey back in May. My Uni provided Courser subscription till July end, so I used that to learn python and basic sklearn ML. Since I knew python this part wasn't much difficult. But after this I tried my hand at the Stanford Andrew NG Course of Machine Learning. Within the first 6 weeks of that course, I learnt how the algorithms worked and got the basic feel. Starting from July, jumped straight onto the DeepLearning.ai specialization and fortunately completed that by mid August, just 2 days before my 5th Semester at Uni started. Nowadays it has been difficult trying to take out time from my Electrical Engineering for this but I really like this area and have therefore taken up a project in this field, along with some IoT. I hope to work in this field after my Bachelors, even planning to do masters in embeddedML or Artificial Intelligence. Any advice from your side would be fruitful for me.
    Good luck to you!

    I'd like to do your course but am afraid watching your videos will make me into a gay.

    Hi Daniel, been watching your videos and I am following your learning approach. Transitioning from BI to Data Science.

    Hey Daniel! Thank you so much for this video. I'm starting my way in ML and DL and this is gold!! I knew about you by your posts about getting the TensorFlow and GCP Data Engineer certifications. Thanks to these posts I'm in part 2 of the "Hands-On ML" book. I read a part and then I recall the content and code myself the examples and exercises. I love learning and creating stuff, but sometimes I'm a bit impatient. I have to learn that knowledge (and mastery) takes time 🙂
    Now I'm going to check the books you mentioned here. Thanks again for your videos and posts!!
