In college, I wasn’t a programmer but I was always interested in it. I touched upon a bit of programming (e.g., C++ for psychology in my senior year of undergraduate studies). Fast-forward to today and I am learning Python. I hope to understand a bit of machine learning’s and artificial intelligence’s underpinning. The journey begins with a solid foundation of the core of Python programming (something everyone can easily pick up). Second, a foundation in NumPy – a powerful array and matrices library for Python. Third, a foundation in Pandas for Python – a powerful statistical and data manipulation tool. Lastly, a foundation in programming for machine learning (e.g., https://www.coursera.org/learn/machine-learning) that ties everything together. This will be an interesting journey.
