10 Recommendations on getting started with AI by Antti Merilehto
Apr 18, 2018
People often ask me: "Where should I start if I want to learn about artificial intelligence? And the answer is always - it depends."
My journey to artificial intelligence and machine learning started when the good people at Slush asked me to moderate a discussion about AI. With a background in business, and as a non-developer, statistician or let alone having a formal education on algorithms, it guided me to study the topic from a business perspective.
This has led me to my current path, ending up in writing a book about the topic: a travel guide to AI for business executives. The Finnish version has quickly become a bestseller (you can buy it here), and the English version will be out by November.
I was happy to help out when Icebreaker VC asked me to gather the most relevant resources on learning and understanding artificial intelligence right now.
So without further ado, I will present the top 10 resources in the Spring of 2018!
1. Risto Siilasmaa on Machine Learning
I'm first one to say that I'm biased because I had a chance to listen to Risto regarding AI way before it became as hot topic as it is today. Great intro and doesn't require any technical knowledge.
2. AI - Learn with Google
This is a set of learning tools from Google, a little more technical.
