Awesome Machine Learning Videos
Looking for the best machine learning videos? Want to learn Machine learning on Youtube? The format of the content which we want to learn is very important. Because of this, we know that while some people love the old-fashioned paperback textbooks and writing down with a pen, others prefer watching videos or lectures online.
Therefore, if you are one of the latest, then it is your lucky day, as we have put together a wide variety of videos, series, and lectures to learn Machine Learning, algebra, Maths, statistics, Data Science, and all that you can dream of.
Having a basic understanding of Linear Algebra is very useful for Machine Learning, as all the time we are operating with vectors and matrices.
We don’t have to be experts in maths, but having a fair knowledge of what we are doing when we feed our algorithms and models with data is always a plus.
The following channels and videos are intended to do just that: get you cool and comfortable with algebra and maths.
-For this kind of content we have one clear choice: 3Blue1Brown. Although the channel has videos on Machine Learning and neural networks for example, the golden jewel of this fantastic resource are the linear algebra videos.
They are explained in a really visual and intuitive manner. It is a shame that algebra is not always explained in this way. Check out the first video of the series to see what you think:
3Blue1Brown Neural Network videos are also available on Youtube, so take a look in case you are wondering how Artificial Neural Networks work.
Machine Learning Videos
In this category we will list the best channels for learning Machine Learning through videos: Algorithms, models, evaluation techniques…all the theory you need to know to start understanding and rocking your own Machine Learning algorithms.
First we have Statquest, by Josh Starmer. For is, this channel is one of the best, if not the best maker of Machine Learning videos.
Statistics, Machine Learning and Data Science can sometimes seem like very scary topics, but since each technique is really just a combination of small and simple steps, they are actually quite simple.
The goal of StatQuest is to break down the major methodologies into easy to understand pieces. without dumbing down the material. Instead, the videos explain complex concept in a clear, fun, and gradual way.
You can find the first ever video of the channel here, however we deeply encourage you to look at the rest of the videos on Data Science, Statistics and Machine Learning. They are truly awesome!

There is a MIT open course on computer science, MIT open course on linear algebra and many more MIT Open Courses!
The videos are actual recordings of MIT lectures with fantastic professors on all the topics. The following is a video of the first lecture of a Computer Science course. Enjoy it.
Like it or not, almost always one of the fundamental things any Data Scientist or Machine Learning engineer has to be able to do is program decently well.
As you progress through your career you might stride off from coding and into more management and business positions related to AI, but we think it is important and enriching that things start at the lowest level possible and from there go upwards.
The following are a couple of channels to help you learn how to program. You can also check out our Python programming books. This section, however has programming channels, to set you up for devouring Machine Learning videos.
Programming with Mosh is one of the best programming channels out there. He has videos on multiple languages and frameworks, so feel free to explore as much as you want. We however, recommend to focus on the general Python tutorials to begin with, and going to more complex stuff from there. Take a look at the following video and decide if you would enjoy coding with Mosh or not.
Artificial Intelligence Videos
There are many channels dedicated to spreading the knowledge about Artificial Intelligence, bringing up philosophical questions related to it, expanding on what it can be used for, and talking about the curiosities of the field. These are some of the best ones.
Lex Fridman’s in his channel has one hour long interviews with many awesome and notorious personalities like Andrew Ng, one of the main practicioners of Deep Learning, Jim Keller, the father of the modern CPU architecture or Daniel Kahneman, former Nobel Price of economics and author of the best selling book ‘Thinking, fast and slow‘.
Most of the videos are taken from his podcast ‘The Artificial Intelligence Podcast’, which is truly awesome. For instance, the following is a conversation with Elon Musk. Check it out, you will love it.
Henry AI Labs is an awesome resource for keeping up to date with what is happening in the Artificial Intelligence world. Each week a 15-30 minute video is posted in the channel with a weekly update of what has happened in the field.
In addition, the channel also has summaries of papers, and educational videos all related to neural networks and deep learning. Take a look here at one of the weekly updates:
The videos in this section contain from videos designed to teach you calculus and general mathematics to videos about the curiosities and the magic of the maths world.
