Don't learn machine learning




[ad_1]

Should you learn machine learning? Yes, you should. But how? By avoiding being a donkey.

There is an abundance of machine learning resources out there, too many.

The good thing is, most of them are pretty good.

But remember, having too many options is the same as no options. Instead of trying to learn them all, pick something, use it, make something with it and if it doesn’t work, move onto the next thing.

If you’re stuck being a donkey, maybe the procrastination is a sign it’s time to move on or find a better option.

    I am currently enrolled in a MSc Machine learning masters here in the UK, and we are learning both the theory and putting it into practice using the assignments. There really isn't a problem of doing it both. Stop telling yourself you can't.. If you put in the time and effort with the right learning mindset and method, you can learn to eat and drink at the same time. Just need to be smart about it. Stop putting these limiting thoughts on yourself. It really isn't that hard.

    You mentioned engineer's disease. Wanting to explore data science and machine learning as possible career options, I found three Udemy courses that introduce both of these subjects and look thorough enough to be useful to me (i.e. have more than 12 hours of video). Your course and one other look like they will help me to understand these professions and the problems that they solve, sufficiently to help me decide if either specialty interests me. The third course looked like it took a tool-focused approach rather than a problem-solving approach, so I decided against that course. I think the instructor had engineer's disease.

    Some interesting/important ideas, but far too long winded presentation style for internet presentation IMO. This video would be much better if it got to the point and got rid of all the tangents and repetition.

    Brilliant logic. We have so much curiosity but we need to be careful. Learn only what you need. Otherwise it is forgotten

    What I am facing rn is that even though I am watching ML tuts, I do not have a place to apply them. EXACTLY the donkey you told me. I also feel the same way as in LEARNING BY PROJECTS. I do NOT want to be a researcher. I want to provide software that solve problems. You definitely are making my path correct EACH day. Thanks a lot man..!!

    I get it I get, have a project to contextualise the theory. But the theory is still incredibly important and without a global idea of what the theory is like, a project can become an obstacle to acquiring it as well. Learn theory as fast as you can, gloss through it, and then start on the projects so you can ground it.

    Good advice…for everyone..but not for me.. nowadays in of billions of people you have willing that to do hardest things,which makes you unique.

    What if i am the opposite of you? I want to build build build but dont want to learn specifics because i am afraid it will tamper my creativity. Is it possible for me to stumble through it and end up with a project that uses ML for something without following some tutorial or studying specific theories/algorithms?

    Question here! If you were to build an idea that could solve a problem for a company. Couldnโ€™t they just model it with their own software engineers? Is their a way protect yourself with this type of innovation?

    Hi, I'm that radiologist from the Philippines (tensorflow blog). Thanks for mentioning my web app RadLens…and yes, I did just "follow my interest"…. building "little toys" and "hello world" in javaScript and python… until finally I got that web app up and running (after a whole lot of frustrating and failed experimentation) but it was an awesome feeling when it actually did work… it was and still is an amazing ride… still eager to learn and build new things….let's all #democratizeResponsibleAI … ๐Ÿ™‚

    It certainly is hard to say no to wanting to learn new things. It's so exciting and fun, but you're totally right. You end up in a situation where you have too many options, and then you don't even do any of them at all. I'm like that with my projects now. I have so many fun interesting ideas, but i have too many ideas, so i end up overwhelmed and i can't start any of them.

    What was holding me back was that I thought I had less of the basics and should learn them prior to implementing ,but what I saw is that by applying it , the key questions arise about basics which strengthen them ..

    I started with a dislike, bc I wanted u to change mind, but u didn't support that opinion which made me keep the dislike.

    So why fucking not learn machine learning?

  • Daniel Bourke
    November 11, 2020

    in as much as i love research work i also love to be involved in practicing what i research. if u ask me doing both DILIGENTLY actually puts you in a much much much better position of exploring more in the machine learning area…..Thank you Daniel for sharing this….FYI i just found out from this video i was once a donkey lol.
