TalkPython - What ML can Teach Us About Life

[ machinelearning life ] ยท 1 min read

Michael Kennedy, host of Talk Python to Me, invited me to chat on his podcast. It was a slightly more philosophical episode of TalkPython where we dived into a recent post I wrote about some life lessons I gained from machine learning.

  • Data cleaning: Assess what you consume
  • Low vs. high signal data: Seek to disconfirm and update
  • Explore-Exploit: Balance for greater long-term reward
  • Transfer Learning: Books and papers are cheat codes
  • Iterations: Find reps you can tolerate, and iterate fast
  • Overfitting: Focus on intuition and keep learning
  • Ensembling: Diversity is strength
