In our ML blog-syllabus, mathematical foundations of ML should be the next stop, however I have decided to postpone this till later in the blog in order to write something more comprehensive. The reader should note that getting the maths ‘out of the way’ is very essential to deeply understand a lot of the ML algorithm out Read More
The first desirable step to knowing God is knowing about him. Knowing God is a personal affair but knowing about him, one could say is doingTheology (with the capital T).

I continued to take notes in my dream notepad sitting right by my bed lamp, and my friends continued to ignore my Read More
