[D] Andrew Ng on how much silicon valley ML engineers know
In Ng’s course on Machine Learning he said something that I was very shocked by.
After the logistic regression modules, which I think is module 3 or 4, he said something along the lines of “If you understand everything up until this point then you know as much as most of the ML engineers making lots of money in silicon valley.”
Then I come on here and most everyone has PhD’s and knows well beyond what Ng’s course teaches yet I see posts about how hard of a time you are having getting a job in the ML career field.
What am I missing, and what is the average academic background of the people in this sub?
