Where should I start?

Hi everyone, im new to AI and I want to dive deep

currently im taking the Andrew Ng “AI for everyone” course and im at algebra level with my math “skills”

i, as you all, are obviously seeing this AI revolution ahead of us and I want to position myself advantageously to gain from this.

im asking for recommendations on courses to take, projects to do, or maybe some heads up, maybe calculus would be good to know. I don’t know, that’s the thing… I appreciate any help, if you could steer me in the right direction for implanting AI at a specific problem that could create value in the real world.

Thank you

Hello @Melwin ,
If you’re not familiar with basics mathematics, I would suggest:

  1. Mathematics for Machine Learning
  2. Machine Learning Specialization - DeepLearning.AI
  3. Deep Learning Specialization - DeepLearning.AI

For projects ideas, I suggest looking through Kaggle and Hugging Face for some datasets and pre-trained models for references

Also if you want to become an AI or Data Scientist, check out this roadmap which provides intensive materials about your learning journey


Thank you Thao for the quick reply! :slight_smile:

Im grateful for the information!

I agree with the course recommendations from @Th_o_Vy_Le_Nguy_n. You also don’t mention whether you have any programming experience yet. All the courses on that list require that you already know how to program competently in python. If you’re not already a python programmer, you should also consider taking a python course. There are a number of them on Coursera, as described on this thread. If you are already an experienced programmer in other languages like JavaScript, Java, C# or C++, then you may be able to learn python “on the fly” by spending a couple of hours on some of the online tutorials. But if you are completely new to programming, it would be much better to start with an “intro to python” course.
