Top 2020 Stories: 24 Best (and Free) Books To Understand Machine Learning; If I had to start learning Data Science again, how would I do it?


Also: Know What Employers are Expecting for a Data Scientist Role in 2020; Top Python Libraries for Data Science, Data Visualization & Machine Learning.



2020 was a very unusual year, with COVID upsetting all norms and expectations. People worked at home more, and companies switched to more distributed work force, and paid more attention to AI. KDnuggets has been ahead of the curve on all of these trends - we have been distributed and working at home from the start, and we have been covering AI, Data Science, and Machine Learning since from the first issue of KDnuggets. Thus it is not surprising that our readership has increased in 2020, reaching over 700,000 unique monthly viewers in November.

Here are the most popular KDnuggets posts published in 2020.
