Amazing Podcast!

AI has really given me a lot of insight on the future and current standing of AI. I would recommend this podcast to anyone who’s interested in exploring new advancements in the Tech industry.

Uninformative

Episode 168 was a waste of time. There was nothing of substance except for vague allusions to "AI for diagnostics" and other buzzwordy things, but nothing specific. I would strongly encourage the podcast owners to screen for BS guests better.

It might even be true that the VA is actually doing something interesting, but this is not the podcast to learn about that.

A good rule of thumb: the more times they say "AI" the less substance there will be about any ML techniques, interesting challenges faced and overcome, etc.
