    I am new to coding and the science of data. In fact, I have a different background as I studied Accounting and know nothing about machine learning. But considering the impact on lifestyle and economic activities, I have picked interest to shift my career to coding and machine learning. Your articles are very helpful. Thank you.

    Hi, great article!

    I think you will love this one. It is called “What’s AI” and it is very similar to twomintespaper, in the sense that part of is channel is to cover new papers and vulgarize them shortly. It also have tutorials and explain many terms of the field.

    As the bio says”I Vulgarize Artificial Intelligence terms and news for non-experts. My goal is to demystify the AI “Black box” for everyone and sensitize people about the risks.”
    Here’s the link:

    Thank you!
