My guest this time is Diogo Almeida, senior data scientist at healthcare startup Enlitic. Diogo and I met at the O'Reilly AI conference, where he delivered a great presentation on in-the-trenches deep learning titled “Deep Learning: Modular in theory, inflexible in practice,” which we discuss in this interview. Diogo is also a past 1st place Kaggle competition winner, and we spend some time discussing the competition he competed in and the approach he took as well. The notes for this show can be found at
