A 3 Month update on my Machine Learning journey
Its been about three months since I publically announced that “I swear to take Machine Learning as my future career path.”
I promised to learn, do projects and blog about it regularly. This blog post marks a few huge achievements for me.
A public note of Gratitude
First thing first:
Thanks to their support, My blog just crossed 120,000 views!
It’s ridiculously crazy given that I just started writing about 6 months ago.
Thank you Hackernoon!
I’ve started working as a DL, CV freelancer early this year. Even though I just started doing it full time after becoming the Youngest Flying Car Engineer (graduating from the Flying Car Nanodegree), the idea grew so fast that it led to me Co-Founding a company with Rishi: Neuroascent.ml
It’s basically a Software Agency that will allow us to scale our projects better. We’re also building a few to-be-revealed ML service platforms. All of which will be powered by Neuroascent.ml
And yes, we have worked on a few jobs. It’s not just an aimless idea. It was a better way for us to scale.
I was invited by PayPal India, Inc42 to do a Live webinar chat and discuss about my freelance missions.
I was honoured to talk with the Senior director of PayPal India and inc42. This was also the reveal of Neuroascent.ml
If you’re interested, you can find the recorded webinar here:
The webinar has been streamed a humongous number of 72k times in just 14 days!
After completing the Flying Car Nanodegree, I had been awarded a scholarship for attending a 2 week AI Bootcamp at Asia University.
I even received a special award for my Final Project Presentation: “Lyric Generation using DL (FastAI lib)”. You can find the slides here
Graduating Computer Vision Nanodegree
I have just graduated Udacity’s Computer Vision Nanodegree. A great course, I’ve always been a fan of Udacity’s courseware CVND being no exception.
I will write a detailed follow up post of my Experience.
Right now, I’m still learning how to run a company and how different time zones work.
What’s next for me?
- I want to kaggle.
- I have failed on my goal of making it to top 30% for 2 competitions that I set early this year. I still have 3 months to complete it.
- Continue with Our work via Neuroascent.ml
- Author a few posts on Deep NLP.
- Author a few posts on OpenCV.
- I will also release a series of interviews where I blog-interview a few people that have really inspired and helped me, people who are established ML, DL Engineers.
