Amrith Ravindra

Amrith Ravindra is a machine learning enthusiast who holds degrees in electrical and industrial engineering. While pursuing his master’s, he dove deeper into the world of machine learning and developed a love for data science. Graduate-level courses in engineering gave him the mathematical background to launch himself into a career in machine learning. He met Ahmed Sherif at a local data science meetup in Tampa. They decided to put their brains together to write a book on their favorite machine learning algorithms. He hopes this book will help him achieve his ultimate goal of becoming a data scientist and actively contributing to machine learning.

Ahmed Sherif

Ahmed Sherif is a data scientist who has worked with data in various roles since 2005. He started off with BI solutions and transitioned to data science in 2013. In 2016, he obtained a master's in Predictive Analytics from Northwestern University, where he studied the science and application of machine learning and predictive modeling using both Python and R. Lately, he has been developing machine learning and deep learning solutions on the cloud using Azure. In 2016, he published his first book, Practical Business Intelligence. He currently works as a Technology Solution Profession in Data and AI for Microsoft.
