Welcome back again champ, hope you had read the previous blog which is Part-I of ML 101, if not then read up here Machine Learning — 101 (Part-I).

So, in the previous blog, we came across a basic intuition of What ML is. Now we will be peeking in to know about Data.

We haven’t talked about data yet which is really important for any Data Science Problem. Always remember Machine Learning is just a puppet it stays idle the puppeteer (data) does the heavy lifting.


In all Machine Learning problem’s, there are three kinds of data :

Thanks for landing on Part 2 of the series, still if you haven't read Part 1 check them out to understand what we are talking about.

In the earlier blog, we discussed the mindset and it was more about how you should prepare yourselves to tackle it throughout the journey. Getting the right mindset is really important, you can learn to code anywhere but bringing out the mindset all matters.

Mixing Creation and Consumption

For instance, let's take you to want to learn to make a website. Before taking a jump in, you gotta make sure what are the things I gotta learn. …

What comes to your mind when you hear the word Programming?

Please, don't ever say it's HTML (or) CSS neither both isn't a programming language. But still, we would have at least came across things like,

Before jumping into the blog, I am gonna cut out technical jargon as usual. This is not a blog from a technical perspective rather, one that would help you fix the learning better.

If you started to learn a Programming language, or even after learning you somewhere felt lost then this could be the blog might…

The idea of this blog is to cut jargons out as possible I can. To give an overview of Machine Learning and the reason we opt for it.

I was reading the book called Hands-on Machine Learning with Sklearn and TensorFlow, I wanna put out things I read here as a practice (selfish) or teaching someone out there what I learned.

Let’s jump in

What is Machine learning?

A field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed to do so.

Enough with the definition, you hear this almost everywhere.

Let’s understand how it differs from traditional programming once…

I love technology, especially something with Artificial Intelligence, which excites me a lot. I have been learning and practicing AI for quite a few months an interesting thing I observed was people implementing research papers.

Feel thrilled when people working their ass off and tryna build something from the researcher’s work, makes us think how far we came across and how great the frameworks and libraries have been built these days.

One thing I like about this tech field is the evolution of new ideas and new technology stack emerging almost every day and how competitive it’s becoming day by…

I felt so exhausted by evening 5 pm and just thought to crash for an hour nap, and I did. Woke up it was all dark and my mind was in hibernate state can’t really figure out what day it is. Looking at my phone felt really pissed off, yeah the time was 10:30 pm and I slept for more than 5 hours.

This isn’t happening just today but for the past few days somehow I get to sleep around 5–6 pm and wake up at 10–11 pm, this really messes with my sleep cycle. …

Unlike the olden times after a break, everything seems different, even after showing up it’s hard to think of a topic that I can write about. There are stuffs inside my head but can’t recreate them into a blog.

Not sure how is this going to end, but Ima keep trying to show up and spend a good amount of time tomorrow writing a pretty good blog. Maybe this can help me to pump up my joy for writing all again.

I broke the chain and that’s the reality and I have to face rather than sugar-coating with a lame reason on it. Though the shits get heavy day by day the one promise I made to myself is no matter what the circumstances are, I gotta show up every day and let the energy do the action.

But for the last couple of weeks I didn’t show up to write in fact it became a choice. This is something I never wanted to happen but somewhere inside me, I knew it was going to happen at any instance once I…

Hola. It’s been 6 days since I published a blog, I know I broke the chain which is a massive gap indeed. Even now I did it all by myself. A lot of things happened within this span of 1 week, went into depression, lack of confidence, there was no learning, no podcasts or blogs, to sum up, it was a complete mess.

People reading my blogs and following me know how fond I am towards pushing myself and doing crazy challenges. Nothing new I failed again but this time with a massive burnout. …

It’s been almost 20 days since I started my own Podcasts, the main reason was to get rid of my fear of speaking and eventually get better at it. But yesterday was different from the rest, usually, it takes me less than 1–2 takes to record my complete podcast without any preparation or have a list of what to speak.

It took me 5–6 takes to record my 10 mins podcast yesterday, I felt really bad not because of the number of takes, it was due to lack of confidence in my speech. …
