The Pretentious Geek: AIM’s New Web Series Makes Data Science, AI & ML Fun

The initial barrier for entry into the data science field is high. There seems to be a lot of information and documentation about a million different ways to do a million more things. The concepts that make up the basis of data science also seem difficult to learn and implement.

This is why Analytics India Magazine came up with The Pretentious Geek, a brand-new, original video series. This series will explain data science, AI and ML concepts in a fun and easy-to-understand way. The show also features interesting characters and novel ways of explaining these concepts. Anyone can watch it and understand the source material, making it a perfect fit for teaching anyone about data science concepts.

Produced by Analytics India Magazine and created by Hera Pheri Films, the Pretentious Geek aims to make data science concepts accessible to everyone in a funny way.

For our first episode, we picked up the topic of recommendation engines. Join Manya, her boss, and Nitin, our host, as they delve into the concepts of recommendation engines and how they work.

Recommendation engines are one of the most present types of AI across the Internet. Owing to their easy extensibility and user customization options, they are a mainstay of every online site and service.

However, even though we know about their existence, the way they work is not widely known. The rise of recommendation engines has also opened up the possibility of user profiling and other similar predatory practices.

Understanding how recommendation engines work can not only enable users to utilize them better for customized experiences, but also creates more awareness about their pitfalls.

If you want to know more and be entertained while doing so, go to Analytics India Magazine’s YouTube channel. The Pretentious Geek is a recurring weekly series with episodes releasing every Monday. The series is a must watch for anyone who liked our previous series, such as ‘The Dating Scientist‘ and ‘Analytics India Guru‘, you will definitely enjoy the funny and entertaining Pretentious Geek.

So what are you waiting for? Join our kooky and funny characters, head on over to our YouTube channel and watch the first episode of our brand-new series, The Pretentious Geek.
