If you want to learn how data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning are being used to change our world for the better, you’ve subscribed to the right podcast. We talk to entrepreneurs and experts about their experiences employing new technology—their approach, their successes, their failures, and the outcomes of their work. We make these difficult concepts accessible to a wide audience.
Creating a Database for AI with Activeloop
Working with structured and semistructured data can be hard, but it's currently much easier than working with unstructured data, like images, video, audio, and text. We talk with Davit Buniatyan, CEO of Activeloop, who chats with us about how he works to make unstructured data for machine learning easier and faster to work with.
Streamlining Construction with AI
What's it like to build an AI product in an industry that still uses outdated project management technology and has no clear conceptual model? After receiving his PhD at Stanford, René Morkos speaks to this very situation. He describes his journey building an AI product in the construction industry.
The Future of Unstructured Data with Graviti
After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania with a master’s degree in artificial intelligence/robotics, Edward Cui was one of the first Uber self-driving car engineers. He’s had a lot of experience working with unstructured data and shares how we can increase the efficiency of modeling unstructured data by an order of magnitude.
Data Strategy in the Education Sector
What is the secret culprit behind overworked teachers and administrators in much of the educational system? We're joined by one of Data Crunch's finest, James Thomas, who tells from both a technological and personal standpoint the real difficulties faced by our teachers and students, and how the right approach to data can solve many of their problems.
CEOs: Here Is What You Should Know about GPT-3
If you haven't heard, GPT-3 is a machine learning model that can write text. Text that looks like a human wrote it—almost out of thin air.
The real opportunity is in the ease of use. GPT-3 doesn't replace your writers. It augments them, making writing faster and more accessible without compromising your results. The last thing you want to do is compromise the quality of your content because copy is an exponential business multiplier. The more you can apply it, the more business you'll get. Despite advances in technology, one thing that hasn't changed is that people still talk about products and services—and what they say matters.
Cyber Security in Higher Ed
Higher education institutions house lots of important data that bad actors can access and sell on the dark web, like students' social security numbers, financial aid information, and national security research. Protecting this information should be a high priority for institutions, but it's not always easy to apply best practices and enforce compliance measures. We chat with Brandon Sherman about these issues.
Such a wealth of knowledge! 🧠
This podcast is so insightful and I’ve enjoyed every episode I’ve listened to so far! Curtis is a very skilled interviewer - he does such a great job of sharing his wisdom and I love how he leads meaningful conversations with industry leaders who bring so much experience and actionable insight to the table. Highly recommend checking this show out - you won’t be disappointed!
If you have a remote fascination for data and storytelling of data applications this is worth the listen.
Ginette and Curtis are some of my favs. On the court the content is interesting and informative, to the point that I sometimes take bullet point notes to use in explaining machine learning to clients. Off the court they took a personal call with me to help me brainstorm and evaluate whether joining a data science consulting company was the right fit for me. 8 months later I’m really enjoying the career move.
