Ask a Machine Learning Engineer Anything | March 2019

Yesterday’s post was an April fools. The blog is still going and I have no intentions of stopping anytime soon.

That being said, sometimes it’s hard to think of new things. Thinking takes work. A lot has been done but there’s still far more out there we don’t know than we do know.

Writing is one of the ways to figure things out. Thoughts turn into words. Words turn into stories. Stories turn into explanations. Explanations turn into adventures.

One of the reasons I started learning machine learning was because I wrote about where I wanted to be in 3-5 years. I asked myself what was my ideal scenario. ‘If everything went my way for the next 3-5 years, where would I be?’

It’s a tough question to answer. And the answer changes slightly every now and then. I learn something new and it sways the ideal.

So what is it?

To create and learn at the intersection of health, technology and art.

I’m working towards it.

I love hearing the stories of others. How they did things. How they were faced with a decision and the reason why they did what they did.

What if I could steal some of their ideas and use them for myself?

I’ve spent the last 18-months studying machine learning online which eventually led to a job in the field.

I know there are many more people out there doing the same so every so often I host a live question and answer session on my YouTube channel. Where anyone can join and ask me anything live on the stream.

I don’t have the answer for every question (does anyone?) but for the small amount of things I do know, self-studying machine learning, learning online, maintaining health, I do my best.

And if you ever have a question I didn’t answer on stream, feel free to reach out anytime.

Keep learning.
