Plates-Spinning-on-SticksIn episode eight we talk with Charles Sutton, a professor in the School of Informatics University of Edinburgh about computer programming and using machine learning to better understand how it’s done well.

Ryan introduces us to collaborative filtering, a process that helps to make predictions about taste. Netflix and Amazon use it to recommend movies and items. It’s the process that the Netflix Prize competition further helped to hone.

Plus, we take a listener question on creativity in algorithms.
