更新一段话，Quora上对于Yoshua Bengio的最新访谈，关于一个问题： 对于进入机器学习领域的年轻研究人员，你有什么建议？（What advise do you have for young researchers entering the field of Machine Learning?）
Make sure you have a strong training in math and computer science (including the practical part, i.e., programming). Read books and (lots of) papers but that is not enough: you need to develop your intuitions by (a) programming a bunch of learning algorithms yourself, e.g., trying to reproduce existing papers, and (b) by learning to tune hyper-parameters and explore variants (in architecture, objective function, etc.), e.g., by participating in competitions or trying to improve on published results once you have been able to reproduce them. Then, find collaborators with whom you can brainstorm about ideas and share the workload involved in exploring and testing new ideas. Working with an existing group is ideal, of course, or recruit your own students to work on this with you, if you are a faculty.
