On the verge of new AI possibilities

March 5, 2020, 5:55 p.m. (2 years, 9 months ago)

In this episode Jaana and Mat are joined by Daniel and Miriah to dive into AI in Go. Why has python historically had a bigger foothold in the AI scene? Is machine learning in Go growing? What libraries and tools are out there for someone looking to get started with AI? And where do you start if you don’t have enough data for your own models?
