2021 - Week 8

This week has been a lot of studying! I took a deep learning class last spring, the first full Covid quarter, but the sudden change in modalities and the new learning curve that came with it meant that I didn’t get as much out of it as I wanted. However, there are a lot of articles and books out there! Although I don’t think I’ll use their Python module, I’m reading the machine learning section of AstroML. It’s a great book and easy to read! Their examples and graphs are fun, and it’s making me consider using their module. Another book I’m reading is “Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn, Keras, and TensorFlow” put out by O’Reilly. I recognize a lot of what this book covers from my deep learning class, which is making the book a lot easier to read. I like Keras and I think that’s the module I’ll be using.
