Open Source Machine Learning Degree

A set of free resources for learning machine learning, inspired by similar open source degree resources. Find links to books and book-length lecture notes for study.

By Allen Sarkisyan, DataScience, Inc.

Learn machine learning for free, because free is better than not-free.

This website is inspired by the datasciencemasters/go and open-source-cs-degree Github pages. This one is specifically for machine learning and features textbooks, textbook-length lecture notes, and similar materials found with a simple google search. This repository is meant as a general guide and resource for a free education.

Bio: Allen Sarkisyan is a data analyst at Data Science, Inc. He has a degree in math, is currently working on chess data analysis, and has a cat companion who probably knows more linear algebra than he does at this point, given her propensity to sleep on his textbooks and notes. Allen can be contacted at [email protected].
