Great podcast

I also want to leave a five star review to counterbalance the fool who left a one star review because the host has not made a comment about BLM! This is a podcast about machine learning and AI. I’m grateful for this excellent resource and the huge amount of work that obviously goes into it.

Excellent resource!

Just listened to Kyle speaking with Adrian Martin about CNN and cutting edge advancements in neural nets. Love getting this insiders perspective.

Uncomfortable dynamic

Agree with the comments on the co-hosts dynamic; he lectures, she plays dumb, podcast grates.
