Why Machine Learning?
I started studying ML by myself because I know most of the companies around the world process a huge amount of information and sometimes they can't see valuable patterns in that information. When we train a ML model to find patterns in data we can get a big surprise seeing new opportunities for our bussiness or interests and I want to be part of it.
Why Data Science?
The Data Science explanation is easy, you cannot train a ML model without a big amount of data. Knowing how to manipulate the data, clean it and make it valuable for a model is part of what Data Science teach us. Getting to know how to use big amounts of data to make deep analyisis is very atractive for me as engineer, it is a good starting point for improve anything.
