Andrew Ng [Co-Founder of Coursera, Stanford Professor, Chief Scientist at Baidu, and All-Around Machine Learning Expert] is writing a book during the summer of 2016. The book is titled, Machine Learning Yearning. It you visit the site and signup quickly you can get draft copies of the chapters as they become available.
Andrew is an excellent teacher. His MOOCs are wildly successful, and I expect his book to be excellent as well.
The twitter hashtag #SoDS is being used in 2015 to help people track and share what they are learning. The hashtag originated on the Becoming Data Scientist blog.
I recently wrote a post for Sense about a number of freely available learning opportunities this summer, Start Learning with the Summer of Data Science. The post covers:
- MOOCs starting soon
- Large list of open-access journals
If you are interested, go check out the post and start your #SoDS. Hurry, many of the opportunities start very soon.
