Hello, my name is Niki Ewald Zakariassen.
Who Am I?
I’m a Danish computer science bachelor student & machine learning enthusiast.
Im currently studying at Aalborg University (AAU) in Denmark, where I try to focus as many of my semester projects as possible towards machine learning.
You can find me on linkedIn here.
What Is The Purpose Of This Blog?
The purpose of this blog is to provide another source of information about machine learning, in the format of tutorials and other posts. I’ll be updating this blog every now and then when I have learned a new subject, that I would like to share with the world.
Why Am I Doing This?
Multiple talented and smart people have already written a lot of great articles/tutorials on almost every topic, I might ever cover, so why should I?
I’m writing this blog for multiple reasons, the 2 major reasons being…
In my personal pursuit of information and personal learning about machine learning, I’ll probably come by a lot of great articles and tutorials, but some subjects might be harder to understand than others, and maybe once I understand the topic, I’ll know what would have made this topic easier to understand at the beginning for myself?
By using this information I’ll hopefully be able to write a post/tutorial, which I might have found useful myself when I started researching the subject, hopefully even more than what other sources might have provided.
This will probably also apply to other people than myself, so why not share my new knowledge with the world?
Personal Notes & Encouragement.
As much as this blog, hopefully, will be a great source of information on machine learning for everyone else, it will also be my own version of personal notes.
Which means that whenever I post something new, it will be subject to my personal understanding of each term. I might even come up with my own terms for particular things if it helped me understand it better. I’ll try to mention whenever I use a term which I came up with. But I might miss the notation at times.
See the Credibility page for more information about this.
Along with this being a place for my personal notes, I also hope it’ll be a place for personal encouragement! I’m already filled with all the encouragement I currently need (At least enough to start a blog 😉 ), but I hope that by posting here, I’ll keep encouraging myself to continue learning about this wonderful topic, called machine learning.
