Summary: For all the hype around winning game play and self-driving cars, traditional Reinforcement Learning (RL) has yet to deliver as a reliable tool for ML applications. Here we explore the main drawbacks as well as an innovative approach to RL that dramatically reduces the training compute requirement and time to train.

Summary: AI/ML itself is the next big thing for many fields if you’re on the outside looking in. But if you’re a data scientist it’s possible to see those advancements that will propel AI/ML to its next phase of utility.
Summary: This may be the golden age of deep learning but a lot can be learned by looking at where deep neural nets aren’t working yet. This can be a guide to calming the hype. It can also be a roadmap to future opportunities once these barriers are behind us.
