#100DaysOfMLCode: A Machine Learning Journey (Summary)

100 days ago, AI Youtuber Siraj Raval proposed the “100 Days of ML Code” challenge. In this challenge you pledge to code and/or study machine learning for at least an hour everyday for 100 days. You also keep a log of your progress through social media.

As a ML freak with time on his hands, it felt natural to accept the challenge. Twitter was the platform of choice. What I discovered is that Twitter gives you a lot of opportunity to interact with people that you don’t know personally. For example, Nikhil Seth made a Twitter bot that retweeted every post with #100DaysOfMLCode. This really enhanced the interaction and experience for everyone doing the challenge. Furthermore, a lot of top AI researchers like Jeremy Howard, Francois Chollet and Ben Goertzel are very active on Twitter!

Anyway, here is my summary for the #100DaysOfMLCode challenge:

3 books (and some partly read books):
