It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally getting around to learning about machine learning. I’m hoping to get a better idea of what artificial general intelligence (AGI) could look like in the future and how that might affect the life I know.
As a first step I’m currently working through Andrew Ng’s Deep Learning course to get my feet wet with some of the technical challenges of machine learning as well as reading Max Tegmark’s Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence to get a grasp on potential big picture ideas about machine learning.
It’s my plan to keep a weekly log of things I’m learning as a way of organizing my thoughts. Wish me luck!
