To become a machine learning engineer requires some basic skill set. One of the must-have knowledge for a machine learning engineer is computer science and programming. 

Several programming languages are important for a machine learning engineer, for example, Python, Java, and R. As well as being familiar with these programming languages, a machine learning engineer must also understand data structures, algorithms, and the application, computability, and complexity, and computer architecture.

It is undeniable that there are so many skills that are needed to become a machine learning engineer. However, it appears that it still not enough because a machine learning engineer must also have a basic knowledge of statistics, distribution and analysis methods, formal characteristics of probability, and data modeling and evaluation.

All the above skills are needed because a machine learning engineer is a very serious job. The machine-learning engineers are required to be able to use their skills in mathematics to perform calculations, work with algorithms in programming, and closely work with Big Data to analyze large and complex data as a basis for making appropriate decisions.

Machine Learning Engineer: Hot and Fantastic Salary!

The machine learning engineer today is not much available in Indonesia. It is predicted that the machine-learning engineers will become hot employment in the future.
