The Zen of Python has been guiding developers for years. Of course, we don't have to follow these guidelines to a tee, but it's always good to keep them in mind.

When it comes to machine learning, there isn’t much formalized agreement on best practices. So what if we had the same Pythonic guidelines of good practice for our machine learning projects?

In this talk, you will look at the 20 aphorisms that guide Python programming and see if, and how well, they could apply to machine learning projects. Would they be useful? Would they bring value?

Take a journey and find out how zen Machine Learning can be!
