Ok 👍, so, would it be ok to focus on learning Kotlin instead of Java? Yes I mean machine learning and data science.

F*ck. I missed the not... Kotlin is NOT a updated Java. Also jam = jvm. Uff. It's hard to type on the mobile with auto correct active. ML and Data Science is searched, but you will mostly needed to took college or (expensive) certification from a big player like Google/AWS/Cisco to get into these kinds of jobs. The self taught won't work there. I would suggests to start simple with Kotlin or Java and than learn the math behind Neural Networks and ML algorithms like NEAT. And afterward you could start with keras/pytorch/tensorflow. (I strongly advice you to first understand the math and only afterwards start with the frameworks)

Thank you. Well, with ML or DS, what can I expect without a college certificate?
