Acronyms of data science

Reading time ~1 minute

Every field has its acronyms, machine learning does not avoid this rule. I am not a big fan of heavy acronyms usage, but if you happen to be lost in the middle of meeting, this may help!

Below is a list of acronyms, if I missed any, or if you have nice references regarding each topic, feel free to comment, I will do my best to keep this list as up-to-date as possible!
