Yeah, I explain it in the full post on my site. TL;DR: I got FOMO and fear to be left behind. That's not very rational, just being honest.

I didn't finally move to Machine Learning all over. It was nice to live in that world for a minute but I don't plan to pursue a career in that area anytime soon. I don't enjoy academic research, I'm not cut for that. I love building products and designing, I'm doubling down on those strengths.

It's however pretty cool to have the skills to pull up a Machine Learning project whenever I want. That's what I take from all this.
