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)
- New cafe-latteYou are too old to learn, it takes few years to master :) go enjoy life with your 500k TC
- New cafe-latteOk then I recommend:
Deep Learning from Yoshua Bengio
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
- Oracle / Data bendyOp 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 .
- 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.
- 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 .
- ConsenSys / Eng dackjorseyThis ones good for foundations, covers both supervised and unsupervised learning. An Introduction to Statistical Learning: with Applications in R (Springer Texts in Statistics) https://www.amazon.com/dp/1461471370/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_VXPjDbPAKHEYW
