sharpen your basics
17:45:47 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : So many IntegratedMLAI family members here today. So, so, so nice to see you all. MKAI is your cousin!
17:46:26 From Jorge Assis : As someone told me, just jump in the AI pool and swim. You will find your way!
17:46:33 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : Follow Manpreet for her content and events
17:47:08 From manpreet budhraja : Thanks Richard
17:47:23 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : 13 mins to go, get your questions in now to give us the best chance of answering 🙂
17:47:25 From Fionn Graf : @Jorge I like that 🙂
17:47:38 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : We always start and finish on time 🙂
17:47:41 From muskan Garg : what is the scope of Machine learning when deep learning has penetrated so much into the market?
17:47:54 From Thom Ives : It’s nice to get some high level swimming advice though.
17:48:24 From Fionn Graf : Definitely
17:48:30 From Thom Ives : “We should start at the beginning. It’
17:48:35 From Tara McKeown : Is there one single source of truth for Machine Learning algorithms to use when modeling?
17:48:37 From Thom Ives : s a very good place to start!
17:48:57 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : Cowboy or cowgirl….love it 🙂
17:49:33 From Cindy Gordon : jump on the horse – Yahoo 🙂
17:49:43 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : Data Reply UK has some paid intern opportunities if you are in the UK. DM me if you meet the criteria and you’re interested.
17:50:04 From Gerry Copitch : LOL ….. too many cowboys in ‘AI’ aready
17:50:09 From manpreet budhraja : network-communicate – be aware – well research help you in Job
17:50:22 From Andrew S : What is this hackathon called?
17:50:31 From Thom Ives : What Manpreet said!
17:51:03 From Cindy Gordon : Good advise on getting involved to learn and meet people… join all the job search engines — indeed, etc….
17:51:07 From John Oxley : For Ammar if he hasn’t seen this: Interpretation: there’s no single best algorithm for every data set.
17:51:46 From Rajat Jaiswal : Deep Learning models are not much interpretable.
17:52:05 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : I’ll save the chat and post onto the archive page:
17:52:43 From Giovanna Galleno : @Delphine you are with the next generation of the Data Science team! <3
17:52:49 From Thom Ives : What Manpreet is saying.
17:53:15 From delphine nyaboke : @Giovanna, we have to get them small, don’t we?
17:53:15 From muskan Garg : actually it depends upon data. but in NLP, features extraction is too weak. isn’t it?
17:53:20 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : We have a lot of lawyers in MKAI!
17:53:42 From Giovanna Galleno : Sure! <3 I love that statement @Delphine!
17:53:43 From muskan Garg : thank you. I ll check it
17:54:05 From Thom Ives : You are the future Delphine!
17:54:13 From seyma tas : Some companies don’t use deep learning because they can’t explain the results.
17:54:36 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : Delphine is awesome
17:54:53 From delphine nyaboke : I take a bow!!
17:55:15 From goswa : What is your opinion concerning Tesla Electric cars autopilot mode? despite having some accidents, do you think we need a different approach or more data to improve the performance?
17:55:22 From Naveen M : Could you please suggest if I could use python Machine learning and train the model and integrate with C# language. ( I tried looking for answer but I am not understand the workflow, how it happens ).
17:55:41 From Harold Huggins : Thom, why do you use MS SQL vs. Panda to train your Python dataset?
17:56:45 From Thom Ives : Harold, That’s where my data resides – the world uses SQL!
17:56:48 From Henry Kafeman : Tara et alTools like MathWorks Matlab allow you to run multiple different AI ML, NN, etc. algorithms on a Dataset with no coding to investigate which work and how well.

17:57:21 From Mohd Zuhaib : great little hack thanks N
17:57:22 From Thom Ives : It’s not that I wouldn’t use Pandas, but that’s not always the best way.
17:57:32 From muskan Garg : great advice
17:57:50 From Harold Huggins : Thom, Your dataset is hosted on MS Azure?
17:57:58 From Tara McKeown : Thanks for that Thom and Cindy, I have connected on LinkedIn 🙂 This was really useful!
17:58:22 From Thom Ives : For my professional work, I use SQL. For Kaggle, I use Pandas.

18:04:50 From Richard Foster-Fletcher : Network science is an academic field which studies complex networks such as telecommunication networks, computer networks, biological networks, cognitive and semantic networks, and social networks, considering distinct elements or actors represented by nodes and the connections between the elements or actors as links.
18:05:26 From Mohd Zuhaib : damn!
18:06:28 From Mohd Zuhaib : when people say data science can be applied to various domains. network science looks intimidating
18:06:59 From Mohd Zuhaib : super man- tom ives
18:07:01 From Tanuj Palaspagar : Oh my God! He lives 25 hours a day 😛
Impromptu. But thought would offer.
