Drop the words “artificial intelligence” into a conversation, especially outside of the tech space, and talk always seems to turn to the impending collapse of the world as we know it. “Machines are taking over!” “All human jobs will become obsolete!” “Robots will soon rule the world!” That kind of hyperbole tends to dominate the […]

We recently sat down with Shubhankar Jain, a machine learning engineer at SurveyMonkey, and Chirag Mahapatra, a machine learning engineer at Airbnb, to discuss the best way to transition into an AI/ML role, what the hiring process typically is like, and industry trends for 2019. The full video Q&As are below, but here are some […]

From Amazon’s shockingly on-target shopping recommendations to Google’s increasingly sophisticated translation tools, artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer the stuff of sci-fi—it’s become a regular part of every consumer’s daily life. This mainstream adoption of AI-powered products coupled with ever-bigger bets by tech and tech-adjacent companies has led to an AI talent shortage that many […]

After remaining somewhat stagnant for decades, artificial intelligence (AI) is going through a period of powerful acceleration. With demand for AI skills more than doubling in recent years, a career in AI has become a highly attractive option for people with interest in data science and software engineering. According to PwC’s recent report “Sizing the Prize,” global […]

In recent years, careers in artificial intelligence (AI) have grown exponentially to meet the demands of digitally transformed industries. While there are plenty of jobs in artificial intelligence, there’s a significant shortage of top tech talent with the necessary skills. According to the job site Indeed, the demand for AI skills has more than doubled […]

In this tutorial, we will be building a basic linear regression that will indicate if there is a positive or negative relationship between two variables. Interested in more advanced frameworks?  View our tutorial on Neural Networks in Python. A linear regression is a good tool for quick predictive analysis: for example, the price of a house […]

In this tutorial, we will be using a host of R packages in order to run a quick classifier algorithm on some Amazon reviews. This classifier should be able to predict whether a review is positive or negative with a fairly high degree of accuracy. In an effort to provide a clear working example of […]

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.
