Formal Education Needed? Naaaa (for machine learning anyway)


@nickcald on the Hacker Noon Podcast:

“My degree was focused in Machine Learning, and I think nowadays when people ask me about that sort of formal education, I tell them, ‘You probably don’t need it.’ You can get really, really far in Machine Learning and just focus on the practical applications of it, without having to understand the underlying Mathematics of it. I think that’s a really powerful thing, that abstraction.”

Listen to the interview on iTunes, or Google Podcast, or watch on YouTube.


What do you mean by formal Education anyway?

According to me people should look more into unsupervised learning.
