9 Traits of Machine Learning Engineers

by Angela Guess Nikhil Dandekar recently answered the question, “How can one become a good machine learning engineer?” on Quora. Dandekar responded, “Here is a list of must-have traits, in no particular order: (1) You need to enjoy an iterative process of development. If you want to build a machine learning system, you need to be able to build a version 0.1 using a very simple model quickly. Then iterate on getting it better at every successive stage. (2) You also need to have a good intuition for when to stop. In any machine learning system, you can always improve the accuracy by iterating on it more. But at some point, the effort you put into it exceeds the value you derive from it. You need to be able to…
