**Machine Learning A-Zâ„˘: Hands-On Python & R In Data Science**

by Kirill Eremenko andÂ Hadelin de Ponteves on Udemy

Actually a couple of new jobs and task at work and obviously major curiosity have led me to have a dive into Machine Learning. Guess what, I absolutely love it. It’s fantastic to get your head around the theory, but also try out some simple examples of applied ML – even if it is just to understand when people talk about it. Actually applying it to own real world problems is of course a different story, but this is a first step for me. It all boils down to ask the right question and to understand what the data might be able to tell you, rather then using Machine Learning for the sake of it.

I highly recommend the course, join me if you’d like!
