I love ML Street Talk (though it’s a bit complex and goes over my head most times). I enjoy some of Lex’s podcast episodes as well. I discovered CTDS a month back and I’m hooked. The Kaggle stories on CTDS are brilliant.

I highly recommend:

  1. CTDS Rohan Rao: Rohan Rao | Numbers, Data Science & Kaggle | ASHRAE - Great Energy Predictor 2nd Pos Sol - YouTube
  2. CTDS Chris Deotte: Chris Deotte | Secrets to Becoming 4x Kaggle Grandmaster | Discussions and Notebooks #1 | CTDS.Show - YouTube
  3. Lex Fridman with Yoshua Bengio: Yoshua Bengio: Deep Learning | Lex Fridman Podcast #4 - YouTube

CTDS is great. The fact that Sanyam doesn’t have a tea sponsor yet is really a huge loss for the tea industry

I’m obviously biased because I produce it, but here are some of my favorite Gradient Dissent episodes!

  • Dominik Moritz on visualizations
    • Dominik talks about the grammar of graphics, a really insightful and beautiful approach to statistical graphics that I first encountered back in my R and tidyverse days.
  • Polly Fordyce on microfluidics
    • I didn’t know anything about microfluidics before this episode, but it was fascinating to listen to Polly talk about #dropception (cells inside picoliter-scale water droplets inside oil droplets :exploding_head:) and protein sequencing.
  • Roger Magoulas and DJ Patil on data science
    • Data science is so prevalent now that it’s easy to forget that it’s very new (only a few decades!). It was fascinating to hear stories about the early days of data science from two people who helped shaped the field.

I really enjoyed this episode of The Robot Brains Podcast about Zipline. They literally slingshot drones to deliver medical supplies and then they automatically return and are yanked from the sky.

I also really like Emily M. Bender’s episode! I loved the octopus thought experiment and the Thai Library of Congress analogy, I thought they presented the form vs meaning distinction in a very intuitive way
