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

#artificialintelligence

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.


Machine learning with Python: An introduction

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is one of our most important technologies for the future. Self-driving cars, voice-controlled speakers, and face detection software all are built on machine learning technologies and frameworks. As a software developer you may wonder how this will impact your daily work, including the tools and frameworks you should learn. If you're reading this article, my guess is you've already decided to learn more about machine learning. In my previous article, "Machine Learning for Java developers," I introduced Java developers to setting up a machine learning algorithm and developing a simple prediction function in Java.

When Michelangelo started, the most urgent and highest impact use cases were some very high scale problems, which led us to build around Apache Spark (for large-scale data processing and model training) and Java (for low latency, high throughput online serving). This structure worked well for production training and deployment of many models but left a lot to be desired in terms of overhead, flexibility, and ease of use, especially during early prototyping and experimentation [where Notebooks and Python shine]. Uber expanded Michelangelo "to serve any kind of Python model from any source to support other Machine Learning and Deep Learning frameworks like PyTorch and TensorFlow [instead of just using Spark for everything]." So why did Uber (and many other tech companies) build its own platform and framework-independent machine learning infrastructure? The posts How to Build and Deploy Scalable Machine Learning in Production with Apache Kafka and Using Apache Kafka to Drive Cutting-Edge Machine Learning describe the benefits of leveraging the Apache Kafka ecosystem as a central, scalable, and mission-critical nervous system. It allows real-time data ingestion, processing, model deployment, and monitoring in a reliable and scalable way. This post focuses on how the Kafka ecosystem can help solve the impedance mismatch between data scientists, data engineers, and production engineers. By leveraging it to build your own scalable machine learning infrastructure and also make your data scientists happy, you can solve the same problems for which Uber built its own ML platform, Michelangelo.

With modern technology, such questions are no longer bound to creative conjecture. You have just found Keras. Today i will give a brief introduction over this topic which created headache for me when i was learning this. All video and text tutorials are free. I use Anaconda package that almost wraps up all the Python packages including Jupyter notebook.
