🐍 I have more than 8 years of experience in data science and machine learning, and 15 years of experience in Python programming.

Tarek Amr and 4 other people liked Anthony's review of Ogilvy on Advertising:
Ogilvy on Advertising by David Ogilvy
"I am not in an advertising business, and read this book out of curiosity. It changed my view on what advertising is.

Key ideas:

 The purpose of advertising is to sell. Advertising can be called “Sales in print”.
 The most creative advertisement is n" Read more of this review »
Confessions of an Advertising Man by David Ogilvy
"Written more than 50 years ago, but still highly relevant. Fun to read. Lots of great quotes like "you wouldn't tell lies to your own wife. Don't lie to mine!" (On honesty advertising). Inspired by his own work as a door to door salesman, he is obses" Read more of this review »

“Exploring the unknown requires tolerating uncertainty." – Brian Greene”
Tarek Amr, Hands-On Machine Learning with scikit-learn and Scientific Python Toolkits: A practical guide to implementing supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms in Python

“The first thing to do when developing a model is to understand the problem you are trying to solve thoroughly. This does not only involve understanding what problem you are solving, but also why you are solving it, what impact are you expecting to have, and what the currently available solution is that you are comparing your new solution to.”
Tarek Amr, Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and Scientific Python Toolkits: A practical guide to implementing supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms in Python

“Generating different train and test splits is called cross-validation. This helps us have a more reliable estimation of our model's accuracy”
Tarek Amr, Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and Scientific Python Toolkits: A practical guide to implementing supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms in Python

“He really had been through death, but he had returned because he could not bear the solitude.”
Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude

“الحديث مع فتاة متحررة بالنسبة لي هنا كان مثل نسمة هواء باردة ومنعشة، أستعيد بها روحي التي كانت تختنق أمام تناقضات وإزدواجية فتيات يردن التحرر، بينما يقررن أن الزواج والجلوس في البيت قد يكون نهاية المطاف، أو حتي بعض الفتيات المتحررات اللائي لا يرين غضاضة في أن ينفق عليهن رجل بالكامل. لم أستطع أن أفهم منطقهن الانتهازي، الحصول على مزايا التحرر، و مزايا النظام الشرقي الأبوي التقليدي معًا.”
إبراهيم فرغلي, جنية في قارورة

“لا يهم أي درجة من الطمأنينة أصل إليها، هناك دائمًا جزء مني، يجفل من كل شيء، كغزال بري.”
أسما حسين

“Extreme violence has a way of preventing us from seeing the interests it serves.”
Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism

“The revolution has to be customised”
Scott Rosenberg, Dreaming in Code: Two Dozen Programmers, Three Years, 4,732 Bugs, and One Quest for Transcendent Software
