Deep Learning Systems with Milena Marinova

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/DeepLearningSystems.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download The applications that demand deep learning range from self-driving cars to healthcare, but the way that models are developed and trained is similar. A model is trained in the cloud and deployed to a device. The device engages with the real world, gathering more data. That data is sent back to the cloud, where it can improve the model. From the processor level

Doing Anything with George Anders

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/GeorgeAnders.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Software gives us new ways of communicating with each other. Engineers build scalable systems for e-commerce, helpdesk, and video sharing–and these systems do scale, to millions of people. But software alone cannot serve all of the demands of all the users and customers on these platforms. We need customer service representatives to address unexpected demands. We need design specialists to evaluate the interface

Word2Vec with Adrian Colyer

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/Word2vecAdrianColyer.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Machines understand the world through mathematical representations. In order to train a machine learning model, we need to describe everything in terms of numbers.  Images, words, and sounds are too abstract for a computer. But a series of numbers is a representation that we can all agree on, whether we are a computer or a human. In recent shows, we have explored how

DAO Hack with Matt Leising

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/DAOHack.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download The Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) was a digital form of venture capital. It was an ambitious idea–to provide a new decentralized business model for organizing corporations on top of the Ethereum blockchain. Few people in the crypto community were opposed to this premise–but the timeline was short, the code requirements were tremendous, and in retrospect, a vulnerability was inevitable. The DAO launched in

Attack Attribution with John Davis

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/AttackAttribution.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download When a cyber attack occurs, how do we identify who committed it? There is no straightforward answer to that question. Even if we know Chinese hackers have infiltrated our power grid with logic bombs, we might not be able to say with certainty whether those hackers were state actors or rogue Chinese hackers looking for an offensive asset to sell to their government.

Car and IoT Security with Chris Craig

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/SecurityChrisCraig.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Ransomware and DDoS attacks happen all the time. Sometimes they affect large swaths of users. WannaCry ransomware froze the computer systems in hospitals. Mirai botnet DDoS attacks took down a DNS provider, making Netflix and Twitter inaccessible for a short period of time. These are innocent attacks compared to what we could face from a world where cars, heart rate monitors, and other

Information Theory with Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/ClaudeShannon.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download We write code in a language that looks like English. Whether it is JavaScript, Fortran, or assembly language, that code is an abstraction on top of layers of intermediate languages, binary, transistors, and physics. 100 years ago, this would have seemed like magic. Most of us know about Alan Turing, who described the vision of a multipurpose computer with the concept of the

Healthcare AI with Cosima Gretton

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/HealthwithCosima.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Automation will make healthcare more efficient and less prone to error. Today, machine learning is already being used to diagnose diabetic retinopathy and improve radiology accuracy. Someday, an AI assistant will assist a doctor in working through a complicated differential diagnosis. Our hospitals look roughly the same today as they did ten years ago, because getting new technology into the hands of doctors

Lending Machine Learning with Ofer Mendelevitch

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/Lendup.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Loans give people more financial security. If people know that they can receive a loan, they will be more willing to take intelligent risks. A loan can allow for a short-term investment that pays off enough to justify the interest rate on that loan. For the lender, a loan can be a fantastic return on capital–as long as the lendee does not default.

Sales Software with Jean-Baptiste Escoyez

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/SalesSoftware.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Most products do not sell themselves. Salespeople bridge the gap between a product creation and a customer who purchases it. People can make a good living on the internet selling niche products–if they can find their customers. The process of taking a large group of potential customers and narrowing it down to only the subset of those customers who will buy your product

Cloud-Native SQL with Alex Robinson

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/CloudNativeSQL.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Applications built in the cloud are often serving requests from all around the world. A user in Hong Kong could have written to a database entry at the moment just before a user in San Francisco and a user in Germany simultaneously try to read from that database. If the user in San Francisco is allowed to see a different database entry than

Internet Extremism with Lochlan Bloom

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/AIExtremism.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Religious extremists use technology to recruit vulnerable individuals to a violent cause. Google is developing ways to combat this extremism through its platforms, namely YouTube. When a user looks for inflammatory religious or supremacist content, YouTube’s “Redirect Method” instead sends those users toward anti-terrorist videos.
