    Default Machine Learning.

    Is there any point in skipping learning asp.net and mvc and proceeding directly into Machine Learning? Basically writing programs that will make asp.net and mvc developers obsolete. Also I hope Maching Learning is easy to learn... I mean Cortana is pretty clever by now I guess.

    Depends what you want to do with it.
    I went down the Python, PANDAS, Pybrain sklearn route for prediction.
    Found it comparatively straightforward.

    I watched a presentation yesterday where Cortana will listen to the drivee-through at Mcdonalds and then speech recognize it and arrange into a written burger order. The argument was that in Mcdonalds stores apprently can get quite loud with the childrenen in the back so human employees can't always hear the order properly. So here comes Cortana. They didn't say what the mcdonalds employees thought of that. But the developers and business people in the audience applauded loudly the poor sods soon to be unemployed.

    So i figure get into that niche... work on people being out of work.... sure I won't put it that way with my official credentials. I'd just laugh mindlessly like we are supposed to.

    I have no doubt that AI will replace jobs, however Cortana still struggles with weather and traffic questions.

    Why learn machine learning, surely a machine somewhere is already busy learning machine learning?
    Patiently waiting for the much publicised and feared Brexit Doom.....

    The Google one on my phone is remarkably good. However the bigger risk to McDonalds is surely robots cooking the food, since the point is everything is done in a totally scripted way already.
