Episode Notes

At just 16 years old, Pratham Prasoon is already the #1 Machine Learning influencer on Twitter, with an audience of over 40k. In this episode, Pratham talks about his start in machine learning, his rise on Twitter, and how he uses passion in machine learning to help others.

Pratham started off with a simple yet strong motivation — wanting to spread knowledge of how to get started in machine learning, drawing from his experience trying to get into the field himself. In May of 2020, Pratham first became active in the world of Twitter.

Inspired by the web developer community and support found on the platform, Pratham wanted to spread some of his own knowledge as well and discovered his niche in machine learning — an often difficult and confusing field to those who do not have previous experience with it. Bite-sized Twitter threads was his way of sharing with others what he didn’t have when he started off, and that quickly grew into content that others wanted to see and follow along with. Soon enough that initial traction and constant production of content snowballed into thousands and tens of thousands of followers.

Whether you’re a student interested in machine learning or technology, or someone wondering about Pratham’s journey and story, this podcast is for you. Pratham talks about his excitement for machine learning and why he wants to spread knowledge using his platform on Twitter, resources for students hoping to learn machine learning, and how teaching others for him is the best way of learning.
