Resource recommendations for machine learning

Main Question or Discussion Point

I am planing to change my field (in PhD) and learn Machine Learning to differentiate different phases of strongly correlated matter. I learned Monte Carlo method in my MS and have intermediate level knowledge of topological insulators.

Before completely getting into Machine Learning, I want to go-through an introductory level book/article of Machine learning for physicists. I want to know if it is too difficult for me to learn. (is it really very difficult?)

Do you know any books/articles in which Machine Learning is explained in context of Physics?

@jedishrfu posted this media link on what is a neural network that I found to be the best starting point for understanding machine learning. I've studied a lot of machine learning courses and algorithms over the last year and none of the courses described it the way that that video series did. Without it, I would still be pretty confused in places.

I read that and ran the code. Very good online book!
