Kaggle is the first place to go for anyone who studies machine learning. This interactive online platform provides hundreds of databases and tutorials that you can use to kickstart your ML career.

But what the website is the most famous for are its competitions. It can be hard for a newcomer to orient themselves in the interface and understand where to get started. So, in this post, we will get you started with your first Kaggle competition!

A Few Words About Kaggle Competitions

Kaggle competitions are machine learning tasks made by Kaggle or other companies like Google or WHO. …


Create an ML project without writing a line of code

Machine learning becomes more accessible to companies and individuals when there is less coding involved. If you are just starting your path in ML, feel free to check out these low-code and no-code platforms.

What is the difference between low-code and no-code?

You have probably heard the terms ‘low-code’ and ‘no-code’ before.

Low-code simply stands for a reduced amount of coding. A lot of elements can be simply dragged and dropped from the library. However, it is also possible to customize them by writing your own code, which gives increased flexibility.


“Computing is too important to be left to men” — Karen Spärck Jones, computer scientist (1935–2007)

Today, it is almost impossible for some people to believe that such a field as software programming was once almost exclusively a female field. What started as an unprestigious tedious profession done by women is now the field where large amounts of money circulate. As soon as programming started to be used for rocket science and became more prestigious, women were squeezed out not only from their working places but also from the history of programming. Test yourself: how many great women in computer science can you remember?

Let’s try to fix this injustice. Feel free to share the names…


Discover the dark side of artificial intelligence

Today, we rely on artificial intelligence for everything. It helps us choose TV shows and make business decisions. Artificial intelligence works well with large amounts of information, optimizes processes, detects fraud, and creates new drugs. But from an ethical standpoint, AI poses more questions than it answers.

What problems keep AI experts up at night? Let’s find out.

10 Ethical AI Issues

We will not talk about how creating artificial intelligence systems is challenging from a technical point of view. This is also an issue, but of a different kind.

I would like to focus on ethical issues in AI, that is, those related…

When you start learning about artificial intelligence, one of the first things that you encounter is Naive Bayes. Why are Naive Bayes classifiers so fundamental to AI and ML? Let’s find out.

Uncertainty and Probability in Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence has to operate with data that, in many cases, is big but incomplete. Just like humans, the computer has to take risks and think about the future that is not certain.

Uncertainty is hard to bear for human beings. But in machine learning, there are certain algorithms that help to find your way around this limitation. …
