Machine learning interview questions are an integral part of the data science interview and the path to becoming a data scientist, machine learning engineer, or data engineer. Springboard created a free guide to data science interviews, so we know exactly how they can trip up candidates! In order to help resolve that, here is a curated and […]

Building a Neural Network in Python I’m Jose Portilla and I teach thousands of students on Udemy about Data Science and Programming and I also conduct in-person programming and data science training, for more info you can reach me at training AT pieriandata.com. The code and data for this tutorial is at Springboard’s blog tutorials repository, […]

Springboard’s Siya Raj Purohit recently sat down with Uri Merhav, a Staff Machine Learning Engineer at LinkedIn, to discuss his career, interesting ML projects he worked on at LinkedIn, and what he looks for when hiring ML Engineers. The full video Q&A is below, and here are some of the highlights. What’s an important attribute […]

In 1950, Alan Turing asked, “Can machines think?” At the time, it probably seemed like an outlandish suggestion, but fast-forward almost 70 years and artificial intelligence can detect diseases, fly drones, translate between languages, recognize emotions, trade stocks, and even beat humans at “Jeopardy.” It seems like AI is indeed developing a mind of its […]

So, you want to work with data, but you’re not sure which area of expertise is right for you?  At Springboard, we’ve developed several courses that teach students the skills they need to get jobs in different data-focused roles. Let’s break them down. Data analysts sift through data and provide reports and visualizations to explain […]

In real life, all of our routine learning, predicting, and decision-making runs on reinforcement learning. It makes sense, then, that scientists build machines using this principle too.   Reinforcement Learning Defined Here is a simple definition: Think of reinforcement learning as any type of learning that comes about through, and is reinforced by, either positive […]

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been making waves for years now, impacting major industries as varied as retail, healthcare, and security. With each passing year, the rapidly advancing technology reshapes our world in ways that were once just fantasy. For some, “the rise of the robots” is something to fear. Many people view it as a threat […]

The broader field of artificial intelligence, under which machine learning engineering falls, is booming. We’re expecting to see 2.3 million new jobs in the market by 2020. And machine learning engineer salaries are among the highest in tech. Springboard helps students around the world start on and advance their careers in machine learning (ML) and […]
