Chugging Along

Have been chugging along the AI learning curve.  I am liking the University of Washington’s Machine Learning Certificate Track very much.  I think the professors are very good and the format of the lessons is very good.  You’re following along and doing hands on exercises.  I think all the programming courses should be like that.


I think Ben Franklin once said

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

Separately, I learned about Davide Maltoni’s HTM research paper.  He’s a professor at a school in Italy.  He used HTM for handwriting recognition and found that it outperformed other machine learning techniques.  So that’s cool. I am in the process of reading through paper now. 

As I am chugging along, I must tell you viewers of this blog what are my favorite things.  My favorite thing in the world right now is protein powder called vega proteins and greens.

Hello! My name is Chirag. I am trying to learn about artificial intelligence, sparse distributed memory and HTM. Once I learn it, I would like to make practical uses of it. I hope to document my journey of learning and using AI in this blog.
