Deep Learning Summer School, Montreal 2016 is aimed at graduate students and industrial engineers and researchers who already have some basic knowledge of machine learning (and possibly but not necessarily of deep learning) and wish to learn more about this rapidly growing field of research. If that is you, there are plenty of videos to help you learn more.

In data science and statistics, probability distributions can be very important. I have been meaning to create a listing of them. However, I no longer need to since the fine folks at Cloudera have already created a list at Common Probability Distributions: The Data Scientist’s Crib Sheet.
Learn the distributions and pick a favorite. (My favorite of the common ones is the normal distribution. I also like the Cauchy distribution which is much less common.)

Our World in Data is data visualization site for exploring the history of civilization. The site was created by Max Roser. Our World in Data contains tons of information about many aspects of people’s lives. It also includes numerous visuals (like the one below) which can be easily shared or embedded on other sites.
Beware, the site is addicting, and you might spend a lot of time exploring data.
