Andrew Ng Advice on Reading Research Papers

  • Compile list of papers and articles.
  • Skip around the list. Read 10% of each paper and choose the ones worth the time to delve into.
  • The bad way is reading from the first word to the last word.
    • Read the title, the abstract, and the figures.
    • Read the intro, the conclusions, all figures and skim the rest.
    • Skim related work.
    • Read the paper but skip the math.
    • Read whole things but skip parts that don’t make sense.
  • Read to answer the questions:
    • What did authors try to accomplish.
    • What can you use yourself?
    • What other references do you want to follow?
  • Math and code:
    • Re-derive/Re-implement from scratch.
