Subject: Python Programming
What is the best way to learn Python?
I feel that be it any programming language, including Python, the best way to learn them is to get right into it by trying to implement some project. Just spend some time on basic syntax, pick a project that you like, jot down the basic logic and what you think you will need for its implementation, and start working. Use the internet well and if you run into some problems, you can always use platforms like Stackoverflow and Quora to ask questions and get answers from experts.
Subject: Machine Learning
What is the most interesting aspect of Machine Learning?
The fact that machines can work like a human brain is fascinating. And the fact that Mathematics is the foundation that makes this possible is even more fascinating. This implies that we can mathematically define the processes of the brain. If we manage to achieve that, we can actually use that representation to train machines to work as efficiently as a human does and machine learning is a branch that will help in the process.
Has the English language affected your personality and helped you become who you are today in some aspect?
Yes, it has played a major role in helping me become who I am today. I used to read a lot since I was young. It was the first thing that came to my mind when someone asked me what makes me the happiest. So I kept at it and I'm an avid reader. I did it back then only because I enjoyed it. I didn't do it to improve my language skills or anything. But as I grew older, I noticed that my language skills were well advanced, especially compared to my peers. I could easily comprehend the lessons and materials in college and because I could understand it all so well, I didn't have to learn anything by heart. It helped me write out answers clearly for tests. It helped me communicate better and understand better. It was a valuable skill. I could use it to help my friends with my understanding of the English language. This made me realize that reading and English were two things that I invested in unintentionally and committed to for a long time and it has paid off so well.
