39 Machine Learning Resources That Will Help You in Every Essential Step

For almost all machine learning projects, the main steps of the ideal solution remain same. Briefly, we all go over the steps below each and every time:

  • Understand the data
  • Clean up, fix the missing values, extract new features, select the best ones
  • Build the model, compare it with the other ones, tune hyper parameters, find out what is the right metric to evaluate your model
  • Iterate this process over and over again until you believe you have the best solution :)

During each step, I had to do some research on the web depending on my business objective and jotted down the best resources I ran across. The resources include Online Courses, Kernels from Kaggle, Cheat Sheets and Blog Posts. Below I’ve listed them and categorised by each step (all of the resources are free except the ones that have ‘paid’ in the end):
