What is Society’s Backend?

Simply put, Society’s Backend is a community to help you succeed with using, understanding, and building with machine learning. There are a lot of misconceptions about machine learning online and a severe lack of explaining the why’s related to ML. This creates a lot of fear related to machine learning.

This is a huge issue because machine learning will undoubtedly impact everyone’s life. It will become the default way society uses technology to solve problems. The way machine learning works fundamentally differs from technology most people are used to. Understanding machine learning (NOT being afraid of it) is important for anyone to succeed using technology.

I draw upon my experience as a machine learning engineer at Google to clarify the complexities of machine learning for you.
