Hi,

I am not a pro to guide you, but as a machine learning student with my experience I can say,

Starting machine learning with course by Andrew Ng is the greatest thing to do bcz you get to know every corner in depth.

 With regard to learning Python if you  already know programming basics, it's not necessary to learn.

 

Along with learning machine learning it will be a byproduct.

 

Thank you

I totally agree with Akash_B.Machine learning by Andrew Ng is so fundamental to your understanding of the field of AI.Take the course first and you will be ready.Cheers.

@Akash_B  @justteeprof  Can you please add a link to the machine learning course by Andrew Ng here ?

I looked for the course on coursera but I didn’t find it.

I will greatly appreciate that.

Hi.. they perhaps refer to --> AI For Everyone | Coursera

Well, let me also say this example that comes from this article:

 https://www.mathworks.com/company/newsletters/articles/creating-a-tendon-driven-robot-that-teaches-itself-to-walk-with-reinforcement-learning.html 

You see when programming, sometimes it’s difficoult to say “What is the best step to start from?” but this is not really programming, it’s more the anxiety of doing “something wrong”.

If you don’t do something wrong, you can neither find the good way. So mess up a bit and that’s the best way to adjust things while going on:

  • If you don’t know where to start from, just start.

This is actually a good strategy in Machine learning. Best luck

@Akash_B Thank you for taking your time to help me.

I wanted to do machine learning by Stanford University. Do you think the Andrew Ng course you told me about is better to start with than the course offered by Stanford? Can you give your opinions on this?

There are no two courses, course is offered by Stanford university and instructor is Andrew Ng

Both can go hand in hand. Then you can learn the python DS/ML libraries

I would suggest learn Python. AI and DL are almost always part of any Python curriculum. You will eventually get introduced to Data Science too, inevitably. You will  need Python programming for AI. I promise you that, unless you just want to be an expert who gives opinions without working on problem solving and app development.
