Tasks: eventually, some may be involved with automation (deployment, test);
others more analytical scripting to get statistics from text files etc.
However, initially I would hope to find a course which provides targeted
I myself took a course on Coursera
<https://www.coursera.org/learn/machine-learning> recently and couldn't
recommend it more highly. The things which made the difference were:
- superb material
- challenging exercises with an online assessment system
- details on "development environment" (not a problem for me, but the
course did include student Matlab edition)
It helped that it was free, so although my employer were happy for me to
set aside time, I didn't have to ask for funding. Other courses on the same
site have been disappointing.
