In less than 30 minutes, 26.1 AI Podcast checks the pulse on the latest in data science, ML, and AI
[Part 1 of 2] Listeners join in for a wonderful conversation in this episode. Our guests Matthew Rocklin and Hugo Bowne-Anderson are extending access to powerful distributed computing for more data users with their startup Coiled. Data scientists with a two minute download of Coiled’s software can scale their work to the cloud. We discuss during the episode how conversations with the open source community resembles early customer conversations commonly used by entrepreneurs in a lean startup framework. Dask’s creator and Coiled founder Matthew described his software design approach that has a decided minimalist bent. A great benefit for users of popular Python libraries because of Matt’s approach is a familiar interface when using Dask or Coiled to extend the power of popular PyData stack tools. Our conversation turns to how Coiled has the capability to extend more computation power to many casual users of Python who are interested in solving data problems pragmatically without rebuilding a data factory every time.

Tileli Amimeur changed direction from a fast track traditional software career based on intriguing invitation to apply coding to biology. This shift followed study in undergrad and grad schools at University of Texas, and a string of jobs with top notch traditional technology companies. Now Tileli is happily applying computation in search of important cures with an interdisciplinary team of AI experts, biologists, and chemical engineers. A must listen no matter your day job. Listen for an understanding of how AI is touching every point of human experience, including coding proteins for cures.
