👨‍💻 Self-educational approach

📘 Basics

An efficient way to learn is to get few solid references and go through chapter by chapter to get a good understanding of the subject. After building foundations we can discover specific topics and expand our knowledge.

Hereunder my reading list for ML field.

  • “Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning” (PRML) by Christopher Bishop - Download here
  • The “Deep Learning Book” by Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Benign and Aaron Courville is a great detailed introduction to Deep Learning - Available online

    For longer reads:

  • “Machine Learning A Probabilistic Perspective” by Kevin Murphy

  • “The Elements of Statistical Learning” by Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman

MOOCs:

It is also important to complement this with online courses that may help you dig deeper in certain fields (NLP, RL, Vision, Decision Making…) depending on your interests.

💻 Code

Reading references is an important step. But in the field of Machine Learning, experimenting with real data and coding is necessary for a better understanding. Here is a list to start with, they contain a lot of real world examples.
