Journey to Artificial Intelligence

iamjoross profile image Jose Ross Barredo ・2 min read

One might say that it is pretty intimidating to get yourself into learning Artificial Intelligence. Well, actually it is. AI is such an advanced and a diverse stream of knowledge that once you encounter the word itself, you get drowned with anxietal thoughts.

The possibilty of being able to grasp the know-hows of artificial intelligence was artificial for me. I never considered crossing the path towards learning it. Imagine the algorithms, math and science that you need to immerse yourself with. It seems to me that it would take a miracle before I would even dare start with it. It is just too highly technical and is just out of the bounds of my knowledge.

I was overthinking. Anxiety and fear took over me. Learning new stuff can really be intimidating especially if you dont know an inch about the topic. I then realize that if I continue to let my insecurities prevail, how can I succeed as a better programmer and as a better computer scientist?

Eventually, I got motived when I enrolled myself in a Masters in Computer Science. The possibilities of where you might arrive when learning AI is exponential. I got interested even more after I started reading Peter Norvig's and Stuart J. Russell's book on Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach. Since then I could not stop myself from learning. I am literally deep diving myself into it.

As my knowledge on Artificial Knowledge progress, I would then like to share with you with what I might be able to explain and teach. I will be posting a series of topics about AI. Let us learn together and venture the world of AI.

This is my journey with Artificial Intelligence and it has just begun. I am eager and excited for this journey!

My story

  1. Excited about ML and AI
  2. Get resources
  3. Open the first book
  4. Read page 1,2,3
  5. Reading page 4, find a math formula 3 rows in length
  6. Close the book, forget the idea

2y later

  1. Find out that Data Scientist need Data Engineers
  2. Aha..I gotcha u
  3. Learning Data Engineering

Not actually related with the article, but it's the closest thing I will do near the AI fields (helping data scientist build AI & deep learning for data analysis).
No math no fun

BG, If no math no fun, then why did u close the book after encountering 3 rows length mathematical formula? :)

Sorry I meant there is no fun for me in that book because of my missing math skills.
