Ok, I Did It

Fair warning to blog readers. I’m going to use this thing as a crutch for the Machine Learning and Database courses from Stanford, which I just finalized my enrollment in. Look out for lecture summaries and coursework as I think through the problems I encounter.

I’ve looked into each course and I am a bit skeptical about the Machine Learning stuff. Machine Learning is when you set a few algorithms loose on a gigantic dataset of uncertain value. Apparently humans are much better when guessing with even the slightest of an idea for what conclusions should pertain.

As a big believer in intuition, this suggests that Machine Learning is of limited use. Am I wasting my time? Should I be spending these hours on my weekend project (which I shall not forget)?

We shall see. God I hope I have the dedication to stick to this…
