The State of ML

An in-depth look at where the AI & Machine Learning industry is today, and how it is changing the way we do business

ML in Practice: Predicting the Time of Day to Send a Newsletter

It’s generally agreed upon that machine learning is really good at making predictions with extensive data sets.  Humans just can’t sift through billions of data points and turn them into anything intelligible. But machines fall short with respect to running a business.  There is a lot of creativity required to apply machine learning predictions in […]

General Purpose Machine Learning for the Win

Richard Sutton’s recent blog post, “Bitter Lesson”, makes the compelling case that most of the biggest advances in Machine Learning are the result of generalized Machine Learning algorithms, rather than fine-tuned algorithms that are developed based on our understanding of human knowledge. This certainly seems to be the case in the world of my PhD, […]
