Who has some programming chops, but not much in the area of AI and Machine Learning?
I’m interested in these two Coursera classes:
I freely admit my mathematical and thus statistical skills are doodly-squat, but I hope that won’t stop me.
An acquaintance is working on the second course, but I thought maybe I should ease into it a bit.
My end-goal is not to be a big-time data-scientist, but to broaden my programming knowledge, and apply it to my Natural Language Processing/Generation interests (leisure-time “creative computing” sure has changed over the decades!).
I’m going to start in on #1 for sure – but I’m much more likely to finish - and get more out of it - if some of you join in!
After the first two slow weeks, I’m trying to pick up the pace, but lost an entire evening to trying to get Verizon to replace a cellphone [the time was more due to our problems with the existing recalcitrant beast than Verizon’s].
