I’m Justin, from guangzhou, China. 2 months ago, I quitted my job from a tech company(aim at teaching primary school student robot programming), purely want to find a job about ML, DL. And at that time, I noticed fastai mooc is already put online serval month, and I’m impressed by the educational philosophy, so I got my feet wet in the fastai course.
Before study fastai course, I’ve passed my final exam in Andrew ng’s machine learning course at Coursera and got the certification. During that time, I decided to work on machine learning or deep learning, and see it as my career.
Right now, I’ve fininshed the part1 course, and at the meantime I’m seeking a job doing deeplearning. I’ve interviewed 4 companys, some of them required very bottom technique, such as implementing CNN in pure python, or do some formula derivation, without using any open-source framework! I have to admit that I’ve terrified by some of this question, sometimes I’m wandering if every company prefer to “no-framework-guy”?
Now I’m familiar with keras(and I love it), and know a little theano(lesson6). After training, I think I can do a lot in image deep learning, and ready to enter the industry. But I’m really confused in whether I should leran more bottom technique or just keep using these framework to find a job ? And what’s the situation about DL job seeking in other country? Do they need PhD or required those technique I mentioned above.
Thanks for your time in reading this topic, and forgive my terrible English. Look forward to your advice.
