Twitter Web App : Heres my conversation with Donald Knuth, the legendary computer scientist & mathematician. I can imagine no better guest to end the year with than Don, one of the kindest, funniest, and most brilliant people I have ever met. It was an honor beyond words: youtube.com/watch?v=2BdBfs…

Twitter Media Studio : Heres If by Rudyard Kipling. Its a poem from a father to his son. I did a 4 hour podcast with my dad (not easy for me to release) and am reminded that life is short & every moment of it should be lived well: with compassion, integrity, resilience & love. youtube.com/watch?v=ZVbAOp…

Twitter Web App : Heres my conversation with Melanie Mitchell (Melanie Mitchell) about concepts, analogies, common sense, complex systems, and the long journey toward human-level artificial intelligence: youtube.com/watch?v=ImKkae…

Twitter Web App : Starting Jan 6, were doing a series of lectures at MIT on deep learning and AI. Skip the first one, but afterwards there are some great talks (inc. François Chollet, Andrew Trask). All are welcome. Seating limited (1st come, 1st served). Video will be posted here: deeplearning.mit.edu

Twitter Web App : Heres my conversation with Jim Gates (SylvesterJamesGates), a theoretical physicist working on supersymmetry and superstring theory. He said at the end that being a theoretical physicist is like having Christmas every day so here we are. Happy holidays! Video: youtube.com/watch?v=IUHkhB…

Twitter Media Studio : Heres one of my favorite poems by Charles Bukowski, titled Nirvana, about the fleeting moments of magic in life. Ive written many songs, most never shared. I hope to change that. Me playing covers & reading this poem is a step toward it. Happy holidays. youtube.com/watch?v=CWb2DG…

Twitter Web App : Rodolfo Yoshii I used Illustrator to vector-fy a photo of Baby Yoda & work on it from there. This is 10 minutes of work from start to finish, just for fun. But yes I draw & love design (especially in tech & AI). Engineering beauty and function is one of the things that brings my heart joy.

Twitter Web App : Heres my conversation with Sebastian Thrun (@sebastianthrun), one of the greatest roboticists, computer scientists, and educators of our time. He was part of launching three revolutions: autonomous vehicles, online education, and flying cars (eVTOLs): youtube.com/watch?v=ZPPAOa…

Twitter Web App : I often hear people say that X is broken. Congress is broken. Academia is broken. Physics is broken. Deep learning is broken. People like to stand in crowds and point fingers at the thing that is broken. I prefer the quiet folks who roll up their sleeves and get to work, fixing.

Twitter Web App : Heres my conversation with Michael Stevens (Vsauce), creator of the amazing Vsauce YouTube channel. His videos explore questions and ideas in science that educate, entertain, and inspire millions of people. Also, hes just fun to talk to: youtube.com/watch?v=3qMemn…

Twitter Web App : I wrote a script to manage some neural net training & added code to send me a text when a threshold of performance is reached while I go for a run. However, I forgot to limit the # of texts to 1, thereby creating my first overly attached neural network. Over 100 texts in 2 hours.

Twitter Web App : I got the Autonomous standing desk. Love it. Ill hack it to be controlled via code & make a video. This is the one I got: autonomous.ai/standing-desks… Also in pic: Kinesis keyboard. Ive been using it for 15 years. We tried taking a break before, but in the end would always reunite.

Twitter Web App : In my view, self-driving cars and smart assistants (along with home robotics) are the AI systems that the 21st century will be remembered for. Doing this work well, from both an engineering and an ethical perspective, is challenging but exceptionally important.

Twitter Web App : Heres my conversation with Rohit Prasad, head of Amazon Alexa. The Alexa team is doing incredible research and engineering work that empowers real-world human-AI communication. Warning: We say Alexa a lot, so put on your headphones or hide your Echos: youtube.com/watch?v=Ad89JY…

Twitter Media Studio : If the future can be different from the past and you dont have deep understanding, you should not rely on AI. - a rule from Ray Dalio for when to leverage machine learning for decision-making. Full conversation: youtube.com/watch?v=M95m2E…

Twitter Web App : Heres my conversation with Judea Pearl, winner of the Turing Award and one of the seminal figures in the field of AI. His ideas on causality are at the core of what we likely must understand and develop in order to build truly intelligent systems: youtube.com/watch?v=pEBI0v…
