As a fervent subscriber to Andrew Ng’s enlightening newsletter, The Batch, I can’t help but share the wealth of knowledge and inspiration that it brings into my life. For those not familiar with Andrew Ng, he is a seasoned professional in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), and his insights are incredibly beneficial for anyone interested in these areas.
His website, DeepLearning AI, is a treasure trove of resources, brimming with free courses on AI and ML. The content is engaging, informative and always up-to-date, making it an excellent platform for both beginners and pros in the field. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend checking it out.
One of the most endearing aspects of his newsletters is the way he signs off. Each message concludes with the simple yet powerful phrase: “keep learning”. This is not just a sign-off, it’s a mantra, a beacon of motivation that reminds us of the vitality of continuous learning.
Today, on the auspicious day of Devi Navaratri, this message feels even more profound. As we celebrate and worship the Goddess in the form of Saraswati Devi, the deity of knowledge and wisdom, we are reminded of the value of knowledge and the importance of constant learning.
Change is the only constant in life, and in this ever-changing world, it’s the ability to learn and adapt that keeps us afloat. Just like the river that flows, reshaping its course as needed, our ability to learn helps us navigate the twists and turns of life.
So, whether you are an AI enthusiast, a spiritual devotee, or just someone navigating through life, remember the power of continuous learning. Like Andrew Ng encourages, “keep learning”, and like the blessings of Saraswati Devi may remind us, knowledge is a never-ending journey.
On this day of Devi Navaratri, let’s embrace the spirit of learning, the essence of adaptability, and the joy of growing. Because, if change is constant, then continuous learning is the never-changing aspect of it.
