June Machine Learning Newsletter 02

Recap: in the previous newsletter, we compared three job posting types: product manager, program manager and data engineer. Check out the career talk here. We have been collecting data on job postings and will report back with more insights. Check out our technical interview guide mid way through this newsletter.

Skill cards FREE and PRO

New feature frequent knowledge cards

Every 2-3 days you will receive 5-20 “byte” size 🦷 knowledge cards. Nearly half of them will be public and the other half or more pro paid members only. The content will range from one off pro tips, ML concepts, interview tips, news and trends. They are easy to consume. Favoriting feature coming soon (you will be able to save cards you like to your profile in the near future).

At the half-month mark, and end-month mark, we will chain logical knowledge cards together and send it to members as smart tutorials so you can see where these knowledge bits fit in the big picture.

As you know we are working on ML books (PDF/online docs) for subscribers. The problem with tech books is that they are obsolete fast. The tech evolves way faster than the editorial process. So we are publishing elements of this book asap as knowledge cards so you can consume them when they are still relevant. The book will still help you chain all the concepts together and understand the big picture. Really understand ML from a deeper level not just remembering syntax.

Public links will also be collected on the Topics page https://ml.learn-to-code.co/topics.html

Message us online if you have any questions https://ml.learn-to-code.co/message3.html

You can now vote for skill cards! Log in and give it a try. Liked cards will show up on your favorite tab. ❣️ 👍🏻 https://ml.learn-to-code.co/fav.html

Our favorite quote of the month is by Forbes writer who describes blockchain as an innovative distributed database. That’s cool because technically it is a chained online ledger that tracks transaction data and mining/ transaction fees (gas price).

Mostly public tips, just two pro only tips. Only $5 a month or less.

Trends and news:

Did you know the tensorflow-for-poet library can identify hot dog out of box? Why does it matter? First all it makes sense because hot dog is already a category in ImageNet image vision competition, so it’s not by chance it is included. Second, hot dog not hot dog is a famous funny neural networks project that made a cameo in Silicon Valley HBO. It’s now a well known joke that appears in hello world tutorial projects, even gets referenced on AI company ads. Our staff actually mentioned this in a real google interview and it was well received. Literally every one understood it. Though guys get more of a giggle out of it than girls. It’s not the most PC jokes.

Every one wants the same hardware : GPUs. Gamers, crypto miners and deep learning researchers. It’s a problem. Nvidia's new RTX 3070 and 3080 Ti cards attempt to cater to gamers and miners .
