Jump headfirst into the machine learning

At present, the technology is evolving with focused on convenience; machines are being designed in a way that they can communicate with human beings meaningfully. Moreover, they are expected to help not only to household common tasks but also with a more complicated and sophisticated problem. So it is pretty intuitive to assume that there are lots of scope in Artificial Intelligence (AI) yet to explore. So, here is a thoughtful paradigm to start with machine learning.

Programming languages

First and foremost we need to have knowledge of Machine Learning (ML) compatible programing language. Here are some programming languages I enlisted in one of the previous article (Programming languages for Machine learning: Julia) and these are quite popular and suitable for ML. If you know any of the languages from the article that’s awesome. Otherwise, if you don’t know of any those programming languages, I would highly recommend learning “Python.” The main advantage with the Python is that it easy to learn and nearly all ML model is available in Python.

Statistics and Calculus

ML is an interdisciplinary science which compromises some concepts of statistical and Calculus which can be used to build intelligent applications with the help of computer science. There are a wide variety of statistic learning resources across the web.

Some online resource Statistical and Calculus topics needed for Machine Learning are:

Statistical concepts are also important for Data Pre-Processing and Exploratory Data analysis.

Big Data Technologies

Understanding how to access large dataset, store them and process them efficiently is very crucial to be able to process big data analysis. Technologies essential for Big data analysis are Hadoop, Spark, and Scala. Along with these online cloud platforms such as Google cloud, AWS, etc. are alternatively capable of managing big data and are easy to handle. Again lots of web resource are there to help with these techniques.
