Hi
I am trying to do a focused ramp up on AI/ML and Deep Learning, possibly Tensor flow as well.
I am aware of the course Andrew ng and other coursera contributions/Specializations from Google and deeplearning.ai
Looking for pdf/books, Any highly recommended books that cover the big picture and dive into details as well? (Theory and applications)

  • You are too old to learn, it takes few years to master :) go enjoy life with your 500k TC

      Ok I won't from now on 🤣

    • Ok then I recommend:
      Deep Learning from Yoshua Bengio
      And
      Elements of Statistical Learning

      Do not forget when you learn something new you do not start from 15 plus years experience in software engineering. You are just a beginner. I am seeing many old guys who has no idea about ML with big TC but jealous about ML positions. It makes interviews very annoying

      After one or two books there’s no use in reading more books. Papers and own projects

    Deep learning by Ian Goodfellow is the book you are looking for

    Op I would highly highly recommend andrew ng courses.

    There are books like machine learning from scratch which have a lot of code examples. My advice would be to start with those recipes and use the tools for different datasets. You will get a whole lot of clarity from those issues.

    Also anyone who is saying you are too old to learn are wrong.

    I have seen execs in ml orgs who have no idea about ml but still fool people around them by being thought leaders and stuff.

    Op you don’t need to start with having deep foundations but the more practice you do, it’s going to strengthen the concepts.

    I am doing MS . It’s more structured . If you have time then look at Georgia Tech OMCS or UIUC MS programs .

      Following this post, because blind's bell icon is trash.

      I am comfortable with ML and want to learn DL now.

      Understood... Did you try deeplearning.ai specializations in coursera?

    • Neurocrine LC is life
      No, I am leetcoding these days (read my username haha). I realized that no expert knowledge of ML/DL/AI can land you a great job if you aren't good with programming.

      Once I am comfortable with programming, I will get back to ML/DL. The site you mentioned is probably where I'll start at. I also know of machinelearningmastery.com that has some good articles. Check it out.

      Thanks for the machinelearningmastery.com reference, do you use them?

    • Neurocrine LC is life
      Yes, I started studying from it few months ago. But then I switched to LC. I'll start ML again after Aug, unless I get an interview call before that. If you want to prepare together, feel free to pm me.

    Cadence pays 500 K ? Is the Cadence Design Systems - EDA ?

      Director level, why not

    • Nvidia ic4cc
      I thought all EDA pays Director around 250 Max

    • Nvidia ic4cc
      The over all market cap of EDA is around 5 billion for last 20 years ..it’s not like FAANG to double every year

      Nvidia.. Check cadence stock.. Cdns
      Facebook is right, very senior position (much more than director)

      Yeah I can see it ..I used to work for your competitor in Mountain View ..holy cow both cos are doing pretty well now ..When I was there to cross 1 billion revenue it took more than 5-6 yrs ..mostly dependent on Intel orders in the quarter end ..go for it . Maybe do a quick crash course ..Masters is too much time .
