Getting Started With Machine Learning (Non practitioner guide)

In the recent years, machine learning has made a comeback into everybody's conversations. From the classrooms in Stanford or MIT, to movies like HER or Ex-Machina, AI is not just permeating all our lives but also our imagination.

But as a developer, how can you start dipping your toes in AI, understand it and possibly change the world with it?

That's what this guide is for, a quick intro from a non-practitioner for non-practitioners :)

We'll install the basic tools required, download some datasets from Kaggle and have some machine learning fun! The guide will be Linux based but links will be provided to alternative instructions when required.

Here's a breakdown of the different articles:

More articles (more supervised learning, unsupervised and reinforcement learning) will be coming soon!

In this tutorial we are going to do a quick and dirty estimation of house prices based on a dataset from a Kaggle competition. Kaggle is the leading data science competition platform and provides a lot of datasets you can use to improve your skills. For simplicitys sake, we will build a simple model to get us started and we will explore how to improve it in later articles. Before we start, download the following file, which contains the training dataset, the test dataset and a sample submission

Installing Anaconda, Python3 and Tensorflow

First thing first, heres a list of the things we need to start playing around with some data: - Python - Anaconda - Jupiter Notebook - A bunch of data manipulation tools like Numpy, Scikit etc.. Luckily for us, the Anaconda distribution includes all of them, head on to https://www.anaconda.com/distribution/#download-section and follow the instructions. Anaconda homepage On linux is as easy as downloading the file, opening the terminal and type ~$ bash Anaconda3- from the folder you downloaded th
