Best resources for learning more about machine learning
June 20, 2016 1:29 AM   Subscribe

Looking for recommendations on reads on machine learning.

Hi all, I'm a novice who is interested in learning more about machine learning. Not as interested in the doomsday / political stuff of artificial intelligence, but more the mechanics of machine learning and how it works -- and it's applications, and future.

Assume limited computer science background. I prefer bite sized pieces instead of books, but open to all.

If you have experience in the field, also keen to hear if you have particular subtopics that you recommend I begin with. Deep learning seems to be one promising one that is particularly relevant to a lot of businesses.

You might find Microsoft's resources for Azure machine learning useful + you can easily get into the tutorials.

There is also a well recommended course at Coursera, but that might break the "limited computer science background" rule.

Definitely check out Julia Evans's blog posts on machine learning.

There's this Data Science (Machine Learning) 101 intro/starter guide.
