Hi, I’m Samia! I am a Sr. Software Engineer at Microsoft working in the AI space; a firm believer in continuous learning, growth mindset, helping others, and living a life rich in experiences.
Why this blog?
Many of my friends and colleagues are either trying to learn Machine Learning or are planning to start doing so. What I have observed from the challenges they have been facing is that there are so many great resources out there but, most often than not, their explanations tend to be too academic or theoretical, which can be intimidating for starters. So I asked myself, “What am I doing to help out?” This introspection led me to start a blog, but a not so usual one – a practical and ‘inspire to make a difference’ blog!
- The practical part: Via this blog, I want to share what I learn and what I have learnt so far. My goal is to write about Machine Learning and Deep Learning in an easy to understand way with practical end-to-end examples using interesting datasets – not text book style examples or partial code snippets. Basically, I want you to save time in figuring out things where I have already spent hours. Also, as the famous saying goes: “The best way to learn is to teach”.
- The inspiring part: Machine Learning can be applied to solve so many real world problems; it can be used as a tool that can help changing lives in a positive way. My hope is to become good enough to be able to solve a problem that can make a real difference. With this blog, I also hope to empower or inspire others to make a difference. So, I will be writing about inspiring latest developments/use cases from the ML world as well.
Disclaimer: I am not claiming to be any top-notch expert in the field. I am just someone on a life-long learning journey. My intention is to help you by sharing knowledge and to learn along the way.
Thanks for stopping by!
