Master your path
To become an expert in machine learning, you first need a strong foundation in four learning areas: coding, math, ML theory, and how to build your own ML project from start to finish.
The four areas of machine learning education
When beginning your educational path, it’s important to first understand how to learn ML. We’ve broken the learning process into four areas of knowledge, with each area providing a foundational piece of the ML puzzle. To help you on your path, we’ve identified books, videos, and online courses that will uplevel your abilities, and prepare you to use ML for your projects. Start with our guided curriculums designed to increase your knowledge, or choose your own path by exploring our resource library.
Start learning with one of our guided curriculums containing recommended courses, books, and videos.
Learn the basics of ML with this collection of books and online courses. You will be introduced to ML with scikit-learn, guided through deep learning using TensorFlow 2.0, and then you will have the opportunity to practice what you learn with beginner tutorials.
Once you understand the basics of machine learning, take your abilities to the next level by diving into theoretical understanding of neural networks, deep learning, and improving your knowledge of the underlying math concepts.
Choose your own learning path, and explore books, courses, videos, and exercises recommended by the TensorFlow team to teach you the foundations of ML.
Reading is one of the best ways to understand the foundations of ML and deep learning. Books can give you the theoretical understanding necessary to help you learn new concepts more quickly in the future.
Using concrete examples, minimal theory, and two production-ready Python frameworks—Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow—this book helps you gain an intuitive understanding of the concepts and tools for building intelligent systems.
This Deep Learning textbook is a resource intended to help students and practitioners enter the field of machine learning in general, and deep learning in particular.
This book provides a theoretical background on neural networks. It does not use TensorFlow, but is a great reference for students interested in learning more.
Multi-part online courses
Taking a multi-part online course is a good way to learn the basic concepts of ML. Many courses provide great visual explainers, and the tools needed to start applying machine learning directly at work, or with your personal projects.
Developed in collaboration with the TensorFlow team, this course is part of the Machine Learning in Tensorflow Specialization and will teach you best practices for using TensorFlow.
In this four-course Specialization taught by a TensorFlow developer, you'll explore the tools and software developers use to build scalable AI-powered algorithms in TensorFlow.
In five courses, you will learn the foundations of Deep Learning, understand how to build neural networks, and learn how to lead successful machine learning projects and build a career in AI. You will master not only the theory, but also see how it is applied in industry.
This course is a deep dive into the details of deep learning architectures with a focus on learning end-to-end models for computer vision tasks, particularly image classification. Explore lecture videos, slides, and past syllabus notes from previous iterations of the course.
