My guest this week is Stefano Ermon, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, and Fellow at Stanford’s Woods Institute for the Environment. Stefano and I met at the Re-Work Deep Learning Summit earlier this year, where he gave a presentation on Machine Learning for Sustainability. Stefano and I spoke about a wide range of topics, including the relationship between fundamental and applied machine learning research, incorporating domain knowledge in machine learning models, dimensionality reduction, and his interest in applying ML & AI to addressing sustainability issues such as poverty, food security and the environment.
