The Sweetness of a Bitter Lesson and Bringing ML and Healthcare Closer

Date

In episode six of season five we talk about Richard Sutton's A Bitter Lesson. Chat about IEEE's new Ethical Guidelines and talk with Andrew Beam Senior Fellownn at Flagship Pioneering, Head of Machine Learning for Flagship VL57 and Assistant Professor, Department of Epidemiology, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Here are some of the papers we got to chat about! Also, VL57 is hiring!
