Understanding math will make you a better engineer.
So, you want to master machine learning. Even though you have experience in the field, sometimes you still feel that something is missing. A look behind the curtain.
Have you ever felt the learning curve to be so sharp that it was too difficult even to start? The theory was so dry and seemingly irrelevant that you were unable to go beyond the basics?
If so, I am building something for you. I am working to create the best resource to study the mathematics of machine learning out there.

Math explained, as simple as possible.
Every concept is explained step by step, from elementary to advanced. No fancy tricks and mathematical magic. Intuition and motivation first, technical explanations second.
Open up the black boxes.
Machine learning is full of mysterious black boxes. Looking inside them allows you to be a master of your field and never be in the dark when things go wrong.
