Building A.I. That Can Build A.I.
A look at how Google is trying to overcome perhaps the biggest challenge facing the AI/ML industry: there just isn’t enough talent. This article highlights something we’ve known/have been dealing with for a while, that real expertise in AI has predominantly only existed in Academia.

Also reminds us of BotBot.
