And the list goes on. I believe that some of these are not duplicates. However, most of them are duplicates (because they lead to the same answer). Why are these questions not marked as duplicates? This is the only SE website (that I know of) that allows so similar questions to remain open. I think it is unproductive to keep having all these very similar questions, so most of them should be marked as duplicates (of the first question asked).

We also have a similar ML series

  1. How can I start learning mathematics for machine learning?
  2. What do I need to study for machine learning?
  3. What are the prerequisites and skills for studying machine learning?
  4. Where and how to start machine learning Journey?
  5. How to start looking for machine learning opportunities in projects
  6. What are the prerequisites for starting out in deep learning?
  7. What are some resources for learning Machine Learning?
  8. Learning AI and Big Data suggestion
  9. Which courses in computer science and logic are relevant to Machine Learning?

Some of these questions have even been closed as off-topic or too broad.

Since these questions will keep getting asked by new people who won't know to check for duplicates, I would create new canonical questions and close these old questions as duplicates of the canonical questions. I would tag the questions with a tag like "introduction-to-ai" or "faq" so that they are easy to find and so it's easy to redirect new people to these questions.

I would create the following canonical questions:

  • Resource requests

    • What are good introductory AI/Machine Learning books
    • What are good online AI/Machine Learning courses
  • Introduction to AI/Machine Learning

    • How can I, a beginner, start learning about AI/Machine Learning
    • What mathematical/computer science prerequisites are necessary to start learning about AI/Machine Learning?
  • Careers
    • What career options are available for those who study AI/Machine Learning
    • How can I, a beginner, pursue a career in AI/Machine Learning

I think these six questions cover all of the questions you've listed, but by all means create new questions as the need arises.

The advantage of doing this is that less questions means that more effort can be devoted to each question, and that the questions will be easily found by people.
