Here is a compilation of resources (books, videos & papers) to get you going.

(Note: It's not an exhaustive list but I have carefully curated it based on my experience and observations)

📘 Mathematics for Machine Learning

by Marc Peter Deisenroth, A. Aldo Faisal, and Cheng Soon Ong

https://t.co/zSpp67kJSg

Note: this is probably the place you want to start. Start slowly and work on some examples. Pay close attention to the notation and get comfortable with it.

📘 Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning

by Christopher Bishop

Note: Prior to the book above, this is the book that I used to recommend to get familiar with math-related concepts used in machine learning. A very solid book in my view and it's heavily referenced in academia.

📘 The Elements of Statistical Learning

by Jerome H. Friedman, Robert Tibshirani, and Trevor Hastie

Mote: machine learning deals with data and in turn uncertainty which is what statistics teach. Get comfortable with topics like estimators, statistical significance,...

📘 Probability Theory: The Logic of Science

by E. T. Jaynes

Note: In machine learning, we are interested in building probabilistic models and thus you will come across concepts from probability theory like conditional probability and different probability distributions.

Here's the code to generate the data frame. You can get the "raw" data from https://t.co/jcTE5t0uBT

Obligatory stacked bar chart that hides any sense of variation in the data

Obligatory stacked bar chart that shows all the things and yet shows absolutely nothing at the same time

STACKED Donut plot. Who doesn't want a donut? Who wouldn't want a stack of them!?! This took forever to render and looked worse than it should because coord_polar doesn't do scales="free_x".

https://t.co/EwwOzgfDca : Deep Learning framework in Java that supports the whole cycle: from data loading and preprocessing to building and tuning a variety deep learning networks.

https://t.co/J4qMzPAZ6u Framework for defining machine learning models, including feature generation and transformations, as directed acyclic graphs (DAGs).

https://t.co/9IgKkSxPCq a machine learning library in Java that provides multi-class classification, regression, clustering, anomaly detection and multi-label classification.

https://t.co/EAqn2YngIE : TensorFlow Java API (experimental)

2/ In this gif, narrow relu networks have high probability of initializing near the 0 function (because of relu) and getting stuck. This causes the function distribution to become multi-modal over time. However, for wide relu networks this is not an issue.

3/ This time-evolving GP depends on two kernels: the kernel describing the GP at init, and the kernel describing the linear evolution of this GP. The former is the NNGP kernel, and the latter is the Neural Tangent Kernel (NTK).

4/ Once we have these two kernels, we can derive the GP mean and covariance at any time t via straightforward linear algebra.

5/ So it remains to calculate the NNGP kernel and NT kernel for any given architecture. The first is described in https://t.co/cFWfNC5ALC and in this thread

In our everyday job we turn cutting edge research into professionally usable software tools. Check out @evelgab's #LambdaDays 👩💻 presentation for some examples:

We create software packages to analyse data in a readable, reliable and reproducible fashion and contribute to the #opensource community, as @drsarahlgibson highlights in her contributions to @mybinderteam and @turingway: https://t.co/pRqXtFpYXq #ResearchSoftwareHour
