In episode twenty four we talk with Ben Vigoda about his work in probabilistic programming (everything from his thesis, to his new company). Ryan talks about Tensor Flow and Autograd for Torch, some open source tools that have been recently releases. Plus we talk a listener question about the biggestGamalon thing in machine learning this year.

This is the last episode in season one. We’ll be back in early January with season two!

We want to thank all our wonderful listeners for supporting the show, asking us questions, and making season two possible!
