Every week, I’ll teach you something new about machine learning.

Underfitted is for people looking for a bit less theory and a bit more practicality. There's enough mathematical complexity out there already, and you won't find any here.

Come for a journey as I navigate a space that's becoming more popular than Apollo 13, Area 51, and the lousy sequel of Star Wars combined.
