The hype around GPT-3 is alarming and gives and provides us with the awful picture of people misunderstanding artificial intelligence. In response to some comments that claim GPT-3 will take developers' jobs, in this episode I express some personal opinions about the state of AI in generating source code (and in particular GPT-3).

There is definitely room for improvement in the family of algorithms of stochastic gradient descent. In this episode I explain a relatively simple method that has shown to improve on the Adam optimizer. But, watch out! This approach does not generalize well.

In this episode I speak about data transformation frameworks available for the data scientist who writes Python code.
The usual suspect is clearly Pandas, as the most widely used library and de-facto standard. However when data volumes increase and distributed algorithms are in place (according to a map-reduce paradigm of computation), Pandas no longer performs as expected. Other frameworks play a role in such context. 

In this episode I explain the frameworks that are the best equivalent to Pandas in bigdata contexts.

In this episode I speak with Filip Piekniewski about some of the most worth noting findings in AI and machine learning in 2019. As a matter of fact, the entire field of AI has been inflated by hype and claims that are hard to believe. A lot of the promises made a few years ago have revealed quite hard to achieve, if not impossible. Let's stay grounded and realistic on the potential of this amazing field of research, not to bring disillusion in the near future.
