Do I have to master statistics before I enter machine learning?

Yes and No.

Statistics is usually agreed to be a prerequisite for a deeper understanding of machine learning.

On the other hand, statistics is a too large field with many esoteric theories and findings to digest. We only have to focus on just the “essential” or relevant parts.

I found two resources useful for the beginners.

1. A blog form Machine Learning Mastery.

Statistics for Machine Learning (7-Day Mini-Course)

I suppose it will not take seven days to get the nuts.

2. StatQuest from YouTube

If you are a video lover, the StatQuest series will be a good choice.
