AI and Programming

I want to know something if someone is bad in programming can he start learning AI or not??

Hi @amjad_mohammad1,

I doubt in this world of Google and ChatGPT, someone could be “bad” at programming.

Yes, you should know what programming is, the syntaxes (for loop, while loop, if/else etc) and logic building (<-- this is probably the most important part). And have (pseudo) understanding the written code.

Take me for example, I learned C++ in my university. Am I proficient in Python ? I wouldn’t call myself an expert. But I know how to build logic and the syntaxes…I google the rest (how to do it in Python if I don’t know already about it).

I got familiar with Python and AI while taking the Deep Learning Specialisation.

In the end, I’d say, it depends on how much are you willing to learn and grow.

Welcome to the community.

To be a good data science there is no need to become a software engineer or a great programmer.

In fact, have a basic knowledge of Python or R it is good enough to starting prototyping and create your first projects and models.
