How to Become a Data Scientist

How do you become a data scientist? I think that really depends on where you are now and what you really want to do as a data scientist. Nevertheless, DataCamp posted an infographic recently that described 8 easy steps to becoming a data scientist. In this post I want to highlight and review DataCamp’s infographic. […]

Python Environment for Time Series Forecasting

Python Environment for Time Series Forecasting

The Python ecosystem is growing and may become the dominant platform for applied machine learning. The primary rationale for adopting Python for time series forecasting is because it is a general-purpose programming language that you can use both for R&D and in production. In this post, you will discover the Python ecosystem for time series […]

The Machine Learning Mastery Method

5-Steps To Get Started and Get Good at Machine Learning I teach a 5-step process that you can use to get your start in applied machine learning. It is unconventional. The traditional way to teach machine learning is bottom-up. Start with the theory and math, then algorithm implementations, then send you off to figure out […]

What You Think You Know About Deep Learning Is A Lie

What You Know About Deep Learning Is A Lie

Getting started in deep learning is a struggle. It’s a struggle because deep learning is taught by academics, for academics. If you’re a developer (or practitioner), you’re different. You want results. The way practitioners learn new technologies is by developing prototypes that deliver value quickly. This is a top-down approach to learning, but it is not the way […]

Philosophy Graduate to Machine Learning Practitioner

Philosophy Graduate to Machine Learning Practitioner (an interview with Brian Thomas)

Getting started in machine learning can be frustrating. There’s so much to learn that it feels overwhelming. So much so that many developers interested in machine learning never get started. The idea of creating models on ad hoc datasets and entering a Kaggle competition sounds exciting a far off goal. So how did a Philosophy graduate get started in machine learning? […]
