Top Machine Learning / Deep Learning Courses on Youtube
LinkedIn
May 23, 2022
This is an introductory course on machine learning that covers basic theory, algorithms, and applications. Machine learning (ML) enables computational systems to adaptively improve their performance with experience accumulated from the observed data. ML techniques are widely applied in engineering, science, finance, and commerce to build systems for which we do not have full mathematical specifications (and that covers a lot of systems). The course balances theory and practice and covers the mathematical as well as the heuristic aspects.

Are NFTs a Scam or Useful? AI Index 2022; Cutting-edge AI capabilities; AI Suggested chemical weapons
LinkedIn
March 18, 2022
NFTs are new and unregulated, so there is more chance for people to misuse the hype. Especially, there has been a recent rise in fraudulent projects. OpenSea ( NFT Marketplace) reported that around 80 percent of the NFTs minted through its free creation tool had been identified as fraudulent, earmarked as either spam or scams. That's why many people believe that is all the same and overgeneralize the problem.

Top 5 Online Computer Vision Courses For 2021
LinkedIn
August 10, 2020
Computers back in the day were good at understanding numbers yet failed miserably at reasoning visual data. Over the years, many researchers and engineers have worked on the path of making computer reason better on the image data that humans perceived so naturally. The generation of image data increases at a rate of petabytes per minute, and humans cannot process it all. Hence, computer vision should be a crucial driver of intelligent technology in the coming years.

Masterclass Series : Fireside Chat with Steve Nouri on "Crafting your Data Science Brand"
K-Tech CoE Data Science & AI - NASSCOM
October 22, 2020
Speaker : Steve Nouri (Head of Data Science and AI at Australian Computer Society)
Cultivating a personal brand for the Data Scientists is a relatively new concept, but it is finding increasing acceptance in this new age of rapid communications and social media.

The other aspect of branding is that it helps create an opportunity to mentor the next generation of Data scientists.

However, there are few data scientists who spend their entire career at a single institution, so owning a strong personal brand can help create easier paths for transitions.

Brand cultivation ideally begins in collaboration with your network and is done in a way such that it is seen as a win for both you and your network.

Listen to the replay of this fireside chat to hear Steve Nouri, Head of Data Science and AI - Australian Computer Society and Snehanshu Mitra, Head of CoE DS&AI discuss the importance of creating a strong personal brand as a Datascientist.
