About Elle Knows Machines

Do you want to be a changemaker in the next technological revolution?
How about becoming a leader on the cutting edge of outrageously cool?
Maybe you want to learn in-demand skills that could make you 💰💰💰?

If your answer to any of the above is yes, then you have come to the right place my friend!

Elle Knows Machines is your place for everything related to artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science. It’s an online space for math-phobes, tech-heads, data snobs, and people who had no idea they had any interest in computers before today (so basically, everyone).

We’re building a community of creators, writers, designers, artists, thinkers, dreamers, and changemakers who have the skills and knowhow to shape the future into something that works for everyone.

You in? Find out how to get started today.

Everyone’s talking about artificial intelligence and machine learning these days. However, there’s a big difference between reading an article about some exciting new application of AI and actually learning how to use and apply artificial intelligence to real world scenarios.

Unfortunately, trying to learn about AI can be enough to make even the tech-savviest among us want to weep.

There’s a lot of information out there on this topic, but most of it is inaccessible – full of words that no one actually uses in real conversations, eye-wateringly long formulas, and obscure references.

Because of this, if you don’t already come from a computer science or math background, odds are you probably think that AI isn’t for you.

Elle Knows Machines is looking to change this.

Everything on this site is based on two fundamental beliefs: that everyone should have access to the tools and skills necessary to thrive in the coming years and that learning about these topics should be open, accessible, exciting, empowering, and fun.

If you’re after a serious, straightlaced approach to the intricacies of artificial intelligence, then this website may not be what you’re looking for and that’s cool #nohardfeelings.

If, however, you’re looking for a high-quality, straight-talking, down-to-earth, and no-nonsense guide to this crazy new world of 🧠 artificial 🧠 intelligence 🧠 then you may have just found one of your new favorite spots on the net.

Who am I?

Hey 👋 I’m Gabrielle, the creator of Elle Knows Machines.

Starting without a background in either computer science or math, I’ve made myself into a data slinging, machine wrangling, Python charming, artificial intelligence designer.

Although I now spend my time working with machine learning algorithms, I started from square one with absolutely no computer science – the last time I’d taken a math class was in high school. Still, I decided it was time to embrace this brave new world and equip myself with the most useful future skills.

It wasn’t easy.

Since I didn’t come from the “right” background, I often felt completely overwhelmed by the information that I’d find online – there just weren’t any resources available for people like me.

Everything I’d find on these topics was either written for developers (which I wasn’t) or statisticians (which I also wasn’t) and most of what I’d find was ultimately dry, boring, and almost impossible to navigate.

So I set out to document my journey, filling in the blanks, learning from my mistakes, and in doing so, began to create a resource that could help other like-minded people to become AI and data science superstars.

Today, I still have a lot left to learn, but in teaching myself how to code, how to understand and prepare data, and how to write machine learning algorithms, I discovered an amazingly exciting world that I can’t wait to share with you.

Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here 🤗
