More and more organizations are realizing the tremendous benefit of machine learning to their bottom line, yet many are not ready to hire a full-time machine learning expert. So a machine learning contractor/consultant/freelancer makes sense. Continue reading
Recently, a colleague asked me for some layman introductions to AI and machine learning. He’s on the road and in a bit of a hurry, so I put together a few online resources. A neat trick: read free introductory Kindle chapters at Amazon, or download samples to your device. Here’s what I recommended:

First, it seemed like the vast majority of my ML friends had landed in the Valley, and many were working, or had worked, at Google. Continue reading

Here’s how three previously separate approaches can be used to help us get the links right.
