Episode #24 – Enter the Dragan (aka @draganrocks)

Where we learn all about the expressive power of Clojure running at the speed of raw machine code on CPUs and GPUs.

Main discussion – Dragan dragan

Finally, a few words of advice from Dragan for intrepid Clojurians:

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend any Java-specific or even Python specific book for ML, since all that I have seen concentrate on the easy part (how to call specific functions) but are superficial on the hard part (understanding particular ML techniques).

The most important advice: there is no way around the math… Moderate understanding of at least calculus and linear algebra is a must.
