Tips and tricks for automation in ML


The struggle of @black_in_ai organizers trying to bring a diverse audience to #neurips reminds me of a point @erica_joy made in an interview:

Clearly @element_ai is all ready for #neurips . They've got a cute little walkway with some neat #mtl facts and deep learning memes.


Things which are enjoyable: watching friends come to the slow, horrific realization that they are machine learning people.
