Can Wine and Beer Help You Get Started in Machine Learning?

Do you enjoy a nice glass of wine or beer? Did you know those two drinks could be used to help you understand the process of machine learning? 

Women Drinking Beer and Wine

That is what the following video will provide to you. It shows how machine learning can be used to learn from data that contains features describing the properties of a glass of wine or a glass of beer.

If this seems a bit out there, when you view the video it will all make sense. The video is only 10 minutes long, so it won't consume too much of your time. Go ahead and check it out here:

What Did You Think?

Let's face it. The video isn't going to make you an expert in machine learning. But, it's a great start. I can't imagine that you didn't get something out of the video. Kudos to Yufeng (the guy in the video). He did an awesome job in presenting the video and presented in an entertaining way!

Topics Discussed in Video

  • Gathering Data
  • Preparing Data
  • Choosing a Model
  • Training
  • Evaluation
  • Tuning (Hyperparameter)
  • Prediction

Will you become an expert at these topics? Hardly. In fact, you may not even remember each of the steps after you watch the video unless you bookmark this page and watch the video several times. But, that isn't necessary. The video helps you with an overview of one aspect of machine learning. There is so much more to it than this.

What the video delivers on is the overview is good which means you should watch the video if you haven't already. Even if you have a good grasp of machine learning, take a look at the video. It's not long and it will help you. I give it a thumbs up!
