Good data scientists are familiar with machine learning libraries and algorithms. It is akin to being an amazing pilot of an airplane, with skills that go beyond flying and borders an airplane mechanic. But to be a great data scientist, those skills will have to surpass the mechanics and thus require a greater understanding.
The great data scientist knows how those libraries and algorithms work under the hood. The great data scientist understands the mathematics behind the science. With the speed of technology, there may come a day when the algorithm itself replaces the data scientist. If we look at our original analogy, this would be akin to planes that truly fly themselves.
We are not there yet, but in this scenario the pilot becomes expensive and obsolete. However, the one person who is never obsolete is the engineer who designs the plane or the mechanic who fixes the plane. Linear Algebra is a cornerstone of machine learning. Linear Algebra not only helps improve an intuitive understanding of Machine learning. But Linear Algebra can help the machine learning engineer build better Machine Learning algorithms from Scratch or customize the parameters involved to optimize the algorithms. In this course you will learn about the Linear Algebra behind the Machine Learning Algorithm.
