How to cut through the AI hype to become a machine learning engineer


I'm sure you've heard of the incredible artificial intelligence applications out there -- from programs that can beat the world's best Go players to self-driving cars. The problem is that most people get caught up on the AI hype, mixing technical discussions with philosophical ones. If you're looking to cut through the AI hype and work with practically implemented data models, train towards a data engineer or machine learning engineer position. Look for them in data engineering or machine learning tutorials. These are the steps I took to build this fun little scraper I built to analyze gender diversity in different coding bootcamps.
