How many of you have transitioned into machine learning from a different career? I'm thinking of transitioning into it from a mobile eng career. Any tips, resources you used to help you get there, etc?

      Right now, yes. The future is ML though.

      Maybe we can talk about this in DM or create a separate post about it. Right now I'd like to keep this specific to the topic.

      IMO it’s funny that people want to invest in ML before they are sure ML worth their investment.

      Feel free to create a thread for it if you think it's worth the effort.

      I haven't gotten as far as to figuring out where my particular interests lie. I'm still in the exploration phase.

      @None! What skill sets are required for each of them according to you?

    I would love to give a complete download of what I know but that’s too much to type. In short, model development requires more stats knowledge. And if you support the data scientists/ Model developers in your org, you are an infrastructure engineer. Both jobs can have the same title or otherwise.
