Talking Machines: Bias variance dilemma for humans and the arm farm, with Jeff Dean

July 3, 2017

In episode four of season three Neil introduces us to the ideas behind the bias variance dilemma (and how how we can think about it in our daily lives). Plus, we answer a listener question about how to make sure your neural networks don’t get fooled. Our guest for this episode is Jeff Dean,  Google Senior Fellow in the Research Group, where he leads the Google Brain project. We talk about a closet full of robot arms (the arm farm!), image recognition for diabetic retinopathy, and equality in data and the community.

Fun Fact: Geoff Hinton’s distant relative invented the word tesseract. (How cool is that. Seriously.)
