- Is Machine Learning Hard? Not Always
Ben discusses the misconception that machine learning is difficult and requires advanced mathematical skills. He argues that the fundamental ideas behind machine learning are relatively straightforward and can be applied to a variety of problems. He provides an example of how machine learning can be used to generate a "You might also like" section for a blog post, and compares the results of using a basic machine learning approach (using the K-Means algorithm) versus a non-machine learning approach. The article is written clearly and concisely, making it easy to understand for readers with little to no background in machine learning.
