    SummaryLearning to program can be a frustrating process because even the simplest code relies on a complex stack of other moving pieces to function. When working with a microcontroller you are in full control of everything so there are fewer concepts that need to be understood in order to build a functioning project. CircuitPython is a platform for beginner developers that provides easy to use abstractions for working with hardware devices. In this episode Scott Shawcroft explains how the project got started how it relates to MicroPython some of the cool ways that it is being used and how you can get started with it today. If you are interested in playing with low cost devices without having to learn and use C then give this a listen and start tinkering!AnnouncementsHello and welcome to Podcast.__init__ the podcast about Python and the people who make it great.When you’re ready to launch your next app or want to try a project you hear about on the show you’ll need somewhere to deploy it so take a look at our friends over at Linode.

    SummaryBeing able to control a computer with your voice has rapidly moved from science fiction to science fact. Unfortunately the majority of platforms that have been made available to consumers are controlled by large organizations with little incentive to respect users’ privacy. The team at Snips are building a platform that runs entirely off-line and on-device so that your information is always in your control. In this episode Adrien Ball explains how the Snips architecture works the challenges of building a speech recognition and natural language understanding toolchain that works on limited resources and how they are tackling issues around usability for casual consumers. If you have been interested in taking advantage of personal voice assistants but wary of using commercially available options this is definitely worth a listen.AnnouncementsHello and welcome to Podcast.__init__ the podcast about Python and the people who make it great.When you’re ready to launch your next app or want to try a project you hear about on the show you’ll need somewhere to deploy it so take a look at our friends over at Linode.

    SummaryVersion control has become table stakes for any software team but for machine learning projects there has been no good answer for tracking all of the data that goes into building and training models and the output of the models themselves. To address that need Dmitry Petrov built the Data Version Control project known as DVC. In this episode he explains how it simplifies communication between data scientists reduces duplicated effort and simplifies concerns around reproducing and rebuilding models at different stages of the projects lifecycle. If you work as part of a team that is building machine learning models or other data intensive analysis then make sure to give this a listen and then start using DVC today.AnnouncementsHello and welcome to Podcast.__init__ the podcast about Python and the people who make it great.When you’re ready to launch your next app or want to try a project you hear about on the show you’ll need somewhere to deploy it so take a look at our friends over at Linode.

    PreambleThis is a cross-over episode from our new show The Machine Learning Podcast the show about going from idea to production with machine learning.SummaryDeep learning is a revolutionary category of machine learning that accelerates our ability to build powerful inference models. Along with that power comes a great deal of complexity in determining what neural architectures are best suited to a given task engineering features scaling computation etc. Predibase is building on the successes of the Ludwig framework for declarative deep learning and Horovod for horizontally distributing model training. In this episode CTO and co-founder of Predibase Travis Addair explains how they are reducing the burden of model development even further with their managed service for declarative and low-code ML and how they are integrating with the growing ecosystem of solutions for the full ML lifecycle.AnnouncementsHello and welcome to Podcast.__init__ the podcast about Python and the people who make it great!When you’re ready to launch your next app or want to try a project you hear about on the show you’ll need somewhere to deploy it so take a look at our friends over at Linode.

    PreambleThis is a cross-over episode from our new show The Machine Learning Podcast the show about going from idea to production with machine learning.SummaryThe majority of machine learning projects that you read about or work on are built around batch processes. The model is trained and then validated and then deployed with each step being a discrete and isolated task. Unfortunately the real world is rarely static leading to concept drift and model failures. River is a framework for building streaming machine learning projects that can constantly adapt to new information. In this episode Max Halford explains how the project works why you might (or might not) want to consider streaming ML and how to get started building with River.AnnouncementsHello and welcome to the Machine Learning Podcast the podcast about machine learning and how to bring it from idea to delivery.Building good ML models is hard but testing them properly is even harder.
