A Practical Approach to Learning Machine Learning with Radek Osmulski (Earth Species Project)

Radek Osmulski is a fully self-taught machine learning engineer. After getting tired of his corporate job, he taught himself programming and started a new career as a Ruby on Rails developer. He then set out to learn machine learning. Since then, he's been a Fast AI International Fellow, become a Kaggle Master, and is now an AI Data Engineer on the Earth Species Project.
