The interviews with ML practitioners! We love it. It’s a great source of inspiration and insights from hands-on professionals. Always something to learn.
Mike Del Balso/Tecton: "There is too much depth in this space for feature stores to be just a “feature”
William Falcon: We did our job right if the term MLOps disappears
Manu Sharma/Labelbox: The future of data labeling automation
François Chollet: Keras, TensorFlow and New Ways to Measure Machine Intelligence
also we spoke to Jim Dowling/Logical Clocks AB: The future of feature stores; Adam Wenchel/Arthur AI: About ML explainability, interpretability, and fairness; Justin Harris/Microsoft: "My vision is for people to be compensated for the data they provide while keeping models free to use"; Jan Beitner/PyTorch Forecasting: " I believe deep learning models will become the method of choice for time-series forecasting"; Krishna Gade/Fiddler: Challenges with model explainability; Iskandar Sitdikov/Provectus: Healthcare has it all: NLP, computer vision, recommendations, and a whole lot more. All interviews can be found here.

"Your newsletter is really different from others, the content is unique, quick to digest and very insightful."
punchline at the beginning: I would like to pay you but system won't let me.
why I write here: Since modern support structures are trying to pre-structure request, it becomes harder and harder to actually report and get help on new and unforeseen problems. I can't find a way to report my issue because I have to choose from categories that don't apply. I write to you because you may have a backchannel. So here goes:
1) So, I am already a free subscriber. For the following: I am on your my computer, using the webpage with Safari Browser.
2) When I try to click on "give it a try" (https://thesequence.substack.com/about) - which seems to be the only way to get the paid subscription - I am offered other newsletters as recommendations (oh gosh, why? I: Hi I want to buy this. System: do you want this is other stuff for free?), which I unselect and then click continue.
3) "You're subscribed!" - I haven't entered any payment info, I am still listed as a "free subscriber" and the "give it a try" is still there.
Fascinating as my debut thriller novel titled "The Sequence," dealt with the ethics of human genetic engineering over the next 100 years. The sequel, which should be out this fall, will address what I think will happen to AI and specifically Artificial SuperIntelligence over a similar timespan. Looking forward to educating myself here!
