Machine Learning

I’ve been interested in Machine Learning since about mid-2015. I learned data mining techniques and tree based regression models in a course, then applied it, and found how interesting it was. I reviewed supervised, unsupervised, and reinforced learning but have a long way to go.

Deep Learning

I knew many practitioners of Deep Learning and was too far behind in my understanding of the domain of my actual work to focus on understanding theirs. At this point, I have more time to understand what makes Deep Learning work and have set out trying to understand it.

Scala

I recently got into Scala after choosing it for our Apache Spark jobs. I’ve been throughly impressed by it’s static type checker, type inference, ease of coding, brevity, parallels with Java, and functional nature.
