The jobs we'll lose to machines -- and the ones we won't
Machine learning isn't just for simple tasks like assessing credit risk and sorting mail anymore -- today, it's capable of far more complex applications, like grading essays and diagnosing diseases. With these advances comes an uneasy question: Will a robot do your job in the future?
If you're interested in better understanding machine learning, Kaggle has easy data sets to get you started. For example, you can predict who survived the Titanic based on gender, class, price paid for ticket. You can start with Microsoft Excel and step up to Python when you're ready for a bigger challenge.
