I sat down with Jeremie Harris recently (co-founder and COO of SharpestMinds) for the Towards Data Science podcast. We talked about quitting a PhD, learning programming and data science from scratch, and what habits can help you get there.

I gave a tutorial to the SharpestMinds community this week on Flask and Heroku that proved useful. So I edited it and uploaded it. I essentially live code a basic web app from scratch to host an image classifier. It is scrappy and cuts a few corners, but the result is a working MVP. I […]
AI and machine learning algorithms are becoming increasingly relevant in the technology we use and it’s important for everyone to understand the implications. There is a key difference in how machine learning algorithms are programmed compared to traditional algorithms. Instead of being logic-based, they are data-based. We’re going from software that is explicitly programmed (if […]
A common sentiment you’ll hear from data scientists is that the majority of their day-to-day work is spent collecting and cleaning data. This is a skill many beginner data scientists tend to neglect. It’s much easier to grab an existing clean data-set and start building models instead of creating one from scratch. At SharpestMinds, we […]
