We hear the second part of our conversation with with Geoffrey Hinton (Google and University of Toronto), Yoshua Bengio (University of Montreal) and Yann LeCun (Facebook and NYU), who talk with us about the history (and future) of research on neural nets. 

We explore how to use Determinantal Point Processes. Alex Kulesza  and Ben Taskar (who passed away recently) have done some really exciting work in this area, for more on DPPs check out their paper on the topic.

Also, we take a listener question about machine learning and function approximation (spoiler alert: it is, and then again, it isn’t).
