Audentia: Latin for “audacity”.

(This is my codex – a working notebook with all my notes and rambles in their full glory. It is raw, unpolished and unfiltered. If you’re looking for my blog instead, it’s here.)

It could take 50 years

By Reflections No Comments

If a daily or weekly habit takes 5 years to show an amazing result, is that worth the effort? It could be building muscle sustainably, stretching to become more flexible, learning an amazing new skill, etc. I’ll be 34 in the next 5 years. If at 34 I’m healthier and stronger than I’ve ever been, more flexible and agile, more mentally clear and happy, and having enough money to retire, that is worth the wait. Then think about 20 years.

A Teaching Superpower

By Reflections No Comments

My unlikely, unplanned journey to becoming a world-class teacher. (This is not a blog. It’s a codex – raw, unpolished and brutally frank) Let’s get 3 things out of the way first. I never planned to be a teacher, never thought it would be one of my careers, and wasn’t good at it as a child. It was not god’s gift nor a hobby. It’s surprising to me that I’m now regarded as a world-class teacher. Now only have I personally taught people on 4 continents, many more have read my essays and tutorials, etc. I have however found more…

Stream #23: What is “engineering culture”? (It’s not what you think.)

By Live Training No Comments

Everyone knows about “company culture.” This video is not about that. Engineering culture is specific to tech teams, and it is much more “concrete” and tangible — it can also be controlled to a greater degree. If you’re a non-technical CEO, it would be very helpful for you to understand this concept. Let me give you an introduction! Here’s the full playlist of open lectures. Also take a peek at our paid training programs (so you can tell others about it) —

By Live Training No Comments

“Safe AI” is a trending topic in the AI community recently. If you’re a CEO, should you really care? My 2 cents: not any more than how much you already do.

It needs to be verified and validated according to the business objectives. The devil is in the details, as we discuss. Here’s the full playlist of open lectures.

By Live Training No Comments

AI has an immense number of industrial applications. One of them is in noticing when things go wrong when humans don’t, and also predicting WHEN things are likely to go wrong.

Stream #18: DO NOT create an “AI team” in your startup

By Live Training No Comments

I’ve got some crazy ideas here that I’d like you to consider. A lot of tech companies instinctively create a team of ML engineers, believing that they will do cool AI stuff that the rest of the company will benefit from. This is a big mistake if you actually want to build AI products. Here’s why, and what you should do instead! Here’s the full playlist of open lectures.
