You're Doing it Wrong. Why Machine Learning Does Not Have to Be So Hard

You’re Doing it Wrong. Why Machine Learning Does Not Have to Be So Hard

Technical topics like mathematics, physics, and even computer science are taught using a bottom-up approach. This approach involves laying out the topics in an area of study in a logical way with a natural progression in complexity and capability. The problem is, humans are not robots executing a learning program. We require motivation, excitement, and […]
