In episode eighteen we talk with Sham Kakade, of Microsoft Research New England, about his expansive work that touches on everything from neuroscience to theoretical machine learning.

Ryan introduces us to active learning and we take a question on evolutionary algorithms.

Today we’re announcing that season two of Talking Machines is moving into development, but we need your help! 

In order to raise funds, we’ve opened the show up to sponsorship and started a Kickstarter and we’ve got some great nerd cred prizes to thank you with. But more than just getting you a totally sweet mug, your donation will fuel journalism about the reality of scientific research, something that is unfortunately hard to find. Lend a hand if you can!
