The most important thing in a machine learning interview or presentation is to be passionate when talking about it (duh!). Here are some of my favourite topics to discuss about:

  • Bayes rule and its applications
  • Data normalization/scaling techniques
  • Feature encoding/representation
  • Different types of classifiers/regressors for supervised learning
  • Text analysis: similarity measure between documents/texts, TF-IDF, N-grams, NLP techniques.
  • Computer vision: image classification, image segmentation, object detection.
  • Dimensionality reduction: PCA, UMAP, t-SNE, Fourier transform, etc.

Of course, be prepared also to talk about your own machine learning projects that you’ve done!
