Sentdex is a very well known Python tutorial channel, but one of his most popular content is based on Machine Learning tutorials with Python. There is an entire playlist by him on Machine Learning, do check it out. He does a live hands-on on various machine learning topics.


Andrew Ng’s courses have a cult status among ML courses. After his successful course on machine learning, Andrew launched another course on deep learning and then released it for free on the official channel. In this course, he starts from the nut and bolts of neural network and works his way up to deep learning in a very simple manner. (His machine learning course, is not on his official YouTube channel, hence not in our list)
