The internet is home to some informative and dynamic forums that can provide information for valuable professional development and industry connections.
While the virtual hangout now has many corners where people talk about everything (from books to tv shows on Netflix), machine learning and data science have also made their way into Discord servers.
To get our data-loving customers started, we’ve identified the ten best forums for those interested in data science and machine learning.
Sign up for your weekly dose of what's up in emerging technology.
MachineHack, a popular choice for data science, AI and ML professionals to assess their skills and compete with others. The MachineHack discussion forum is a community-driven space to tackle any technical challenges. It focuses on important topics every data science professional should know—from salary ranges to technical doubts.
The Data Share by Towards Data Science
If you’re involved with some data work, you might have stumbled on Towards Data Science. Their discord server, Data Share, is a project meant to be a platform where anyone could hang out based on common interests and discuss problems. The best thing about the platform is the discussion categorization, such as – machine learning, analytics, NLP, and so on!
The name says it all! This community, made by data scientists, is all about data science. A server delves into all the areas with members of different levels of expertise. The server has everything from visualisation and communication to data engineering and model deployment. So whether you’re a pundit, student or casual enthusiast, all are welcome!
CS Dojo is a well-known YouTuber who talks about programming-related stuff. Join his large community where discussions about programming, game development, web dev, AI and ML, data science, etc, are happening.
Tina Huang is another YouTuber who makes videos about data science, learning, and productivity so that you can expect something similar from her Discord server “Tina’s Friends”. In this server, you’ll find a lot of data science-related channels such as Python, R, SQL, machine learning and statistics (these channels are invisible, so to activate them, you have to give yourself the role of “Data Science” reacting in the channels-access-roles). Although these channels aren’t as active as those from other servers, there are still many people to interact with.
The server is for anyone interested in the maths behind machine learning. The well-organised server is for sharing knowledge and experiences. It has introduction channels and voice channels, too.
For those who recognise the name, you wouldn’t need much introduction. However, for those fresh to Tensorflow, it is an open-source ML platform that many data scientists use.
Join the server to learn, contribute, and grow in your MLOps journey. You meet developers, students, researchers, and authors.
DVC introduces people to the “Dev” practices involved in Data Science and Machine Learning Development. With insights into integrations of modern libraries and packages into your Machine Learning Pipelines, the server seemed a very attractive place for a learner like me and may resonate with you too! The server hosts discussions and resource sharing. Milecia McGregor and Jeny De Figueiredo write most of the content, and Jeny is also the community manager.
Evidently AI – ML in Production
Evidently AI, is a server dedicated to discussing tools and methods related to testing, monitoring, and evaluating ML Models. But, even though the server exists to talk about its product and services. The theme explores several practices to track and test ML models. Discussing various issues such as model quality, data drift, and target drift.
