Sharper
By Santiago • Issue #15 • View online
One thing I’ve learned over the last year: Twitter has been a great writing school.
Add fluff to your writing, and you’ll get punished. Twitter engagement plummets proportionally to the number of unnecessary words you write.
I like this. It has helped me focus on ideas and deliver value in a way I’ve never experienced before. My writing on Twitter has become sharper and much more concise, and people have responded in kind.
To celebrate, I want to share three different stories with you, Twitter-style.

Ensemble Learning
Ensembles are one of the most powerful ideas that you can use in machine learning. This thread will walk you through how and why ensembles work and finish with a real-life example and a few tips you want to keep in mind.

Machine learning superpower: Be the one that makes better predictions.

I can teach you how to do this by putting 2+ models together.

Thread: beginner-friendly introduction to Ensembles.

• What are they?
• Why do they work?
• Real-life examples.
• Practical tips.

Test-Time Augmentation
This is easily one of the least-discussed machine learning techniques that I’ve come across lately. It works, and it’s definitely a smart idea that will seem obvious after reading about it.

Have you used Test-Time Augmentation before? I'd love to hear about your experience with it.

If you enjoy these threads, follow me @svpino as I help you deconstruct machine learning and turn it into Your Next Big Thing™.
Problems to solve is all you need
If you are starting, nothing will help you make more progress than solving problems.
If you are looking for a job, showing up with hands-on experience will put you at the top of the list.
Here are 7 problems you can tackle. Then I added 5 more. And then I threw one more idea. 13 projects total.

Do you know what's holding you back?

The same boring projects than everyone else is working on. How do you break off the mold and make a difference?

Thread: 7 machine learning projects that will teach you the technical skills you need to succeed out there.
What's in your mind?
Reply to this email and let me know what you’d like to see me cover next.
I read every email, and I’m always looking for ideas.
See ya next week ✌️
