Below are the top discussions from Reddit that mention this online Coursera course from University of Washington.

Do you have data and wonder what it can tell you? Do you need a deeper understanding of the core ways in which machine learning can improve your business? Do you want to be able to converse with specialists about anything from regression and classification to deep learning and recommender systems?...

A guide which anyone can follow to enter the machine learning industry.

Hey r/india!

I'm making this post as because I've been asked this question many times!

So here's a Map that I made which "anyone" can follow to enter in this ML Industry.


  • If you don't know how to program. CS50x by Harvard will be the best online free course for you.

  • Workout on your Maths! Learn Calculus and LA. Also Probability, Stats and Number theory!

  • Learn linux (linuxmasterrace :P)

  • Buy this or this or The Imposter Handbook or Grokking Algorithms (Introduction to Algorithms by Cormen is also a very good book!)

Ok so now I'll just post the suitable links to find the course!

These will build the foundation which is obv. not sufficient! Search these MOOCs for individual courses on Regression/Clustering/NLP/etc. (Each will hold a duration of 3-4 weeks)

Tip : Learn how to write DL-nets. Trust me this'll be the best thing you'll do to yourself if you're willing to come in this field!

Some more things -

  • Work out on your Database skills and learn how not to write spaghetti code.

I think that's it guys! I'm open for questions.

Thanks,

Mason

I second the Andrew Ng course.

The case studies are relatable and give you a practical feel for the concepts. Two caveats:

1) It recommends (and the example notebooks use) turicreate rather than something more popular like scikit-learn or tensorflow and

2) If you decide to use turicreate, ignore the instructions to install on your laptop and use colabs instead, it's much simpler.
