Looking at the past trends, the world data is expected to double every two years with the cost of data storage declining at roughly the same rate. In order to extract the information from this exponentially increasing data, the need for better Machine Learning techniques is at an all-time high.
Machine Learning is perhaps one of the hottest fields in the world right now, not just in Silicon Valley. You can see the applications of Machine Learning probably everywhere around you, for instance in gadgets such as Amazon Echo and Google Home, personalized ads shown on Facebook, Video recommendations on Netflix and Youtube, Product recommendations on e-commerce platforms such as Amazon and Flipkart.
Every industry, every company is using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in one way or another. For any company wanting to gauge the reach of their business and products, using Machine Learning techniques is the only scalable approach in the long term. The major use cases of Machine Learning lies in analyzing Big Data, creating Predictive Models and Deep Insights.
It is not surprising that the demand for Data Scientists and Machine Learning engineers is more than ever before. And, I believe that it is extremely crucial to keep yourself up to date on the latest research and developments in this field. Be it automation, personalization, cognitive services or predictive analytics, Machine Learning is going to be the center point of all such fields.
“Machine learning and deep learning will create a new set of hot jobs in the next 5 years.” -Dave Waters
To help students and professionals prepare well for Machine Learning and Data Scientist jobs, I have recently written a book “Cracking The Machine Learning Interview”. This book provides the most important and frequently asked questions in Machine Learning Job Interviews along with their solutions, and has enough material for both a beginner to the field and an intermediate to advanced level expert in it.
The book is in final stages and would be published soon. Do subscribe on our website to get a personal invite for the launch and the discount coupons that we would be giving to our early readers.
We do have highly active social media accounts where we daily discuss everything in AI and ML from news to important interview questions to memes to latest research, everything. Please follow us on: Facebook Instagram
