How to get started with machine learning? (Beginner to advanced journey)
Updated: Aug 10
Before jumping to the main topic I want to share one secret, which will lead you towards a successful machine learning engineer for sure and that is DEDICATION.
As you have clicked this link, I can assure you that you have dedication.
So, let us jump to the topic.
How I started?
Just like everyone MACHINE LEARNING, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, DEEP LEARNING, seems to be very cool, futuristic, unreal, IRON MAN type of thing, and it draws my attention towards this field. But I don't know where to start.
I have read many articles, blogs, watched many youtube tutorials but I was not satisfied. But at the same time, I don't want to lose my dedication and Interest so, I googled "programming language needed for machine learning".
Here I got my first answer which is the PYTHON language.
I found HACKER RANK is the best website for practice. No need to worry, click on the name you will find yourself on that page. I continued for weeks and got some more materials. Those are given below.
Study materials for MACHINE LEARNING.
Download COURSERA app and join these two courses:
Machine learning with python by IBM
Applied machine learning in python by UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN
Now the book
Hands-on machine learning with Scikit-learn, Keras, by AURELIEN GERON.
If you have covered all the steps mentioned above then its time to jump to the real-life end to end projects...
projects for beginner
movie recommendation system
and many more!!!!
You will face problems during projects. So, I will suggest you solve solved problems.
Whenever you will face issues during the project making simply copy the problem and paste it into google, I bet you will find the answer.
So, what are you waiting for? grab a cup of coffee, arrange your study table, and start your first machine learning code.
Hope your journey will be memorable!!
