Skepticism Roundtable with Ammon Bartram and Kyle Polich

Engineers have plenty to be skeptical about. We look to data sets to give us something resembling objective truth. Some areas of research have so many variables that it is hard to isolate facts. Kyle Polich hosts the popular data science show Data Skeptic, where he examines problems and solutions around data, and he is one of the guests today in our round table discussion.

There are some big unanswered questions in our world that might eventually be solved with enough data and the right scientific approach: nutrition, or drug discovery, or image classification. The hiring process is like this. How can you predict whether an engineer will make for a good hire? Ammon Bartram of Triplebyte is working on solving the hiring process for engineering organizations and he is the other guest for this roundtable episode.
