Luis Serrano, Head of Content - Artificial Intelligence at Udacity

I believe education is tremendously important, and I believe every human being deserves a world-class education. This way we can improve as a society. I work towards this goal of democratizing education every day.

One of the most important and ubiquitous current topics is machine learning. There is a very common misconception and it is that machine learning is a complicated subject, only accessible to those with high programming and mathematical skills. This is entirely untrue; machine learning is just the adult version of connect-the-dots, and anybody with a high school education can learn and tackle problems in machine learning.

At Udacity, I am the head of the Machine Learning Nanodegree Team. Our goal is to let everybody know that they can learn machine learning, and give them the right tools for that.
