For the upcoming podcast I am very happy to welcome Dr. Sarah Kaiser to my show!
Sarah is currently a technical staff member and quantum community lead at Unitary Fund and has spent much of her career developing new quantum hardware in the lab. From building satellites to hacking quantum cryptography hardware, communicating what is so exciting about quantum is her passion. She loves building new demos, tools, and partnerships to help enable the quantum open-source community to grow. When not at the keyboard she loves kayaking, laser cutting everything (safe), and writing books about engineering for kids and adults alike.
In this podcast, we talked about:
Quantum Computing (QC) ⚛️
Ethics in QC 📙
Q# and Sarah’s book about Q# 📚
and much more…
Course of the Week
In this NVIDIA course, you’ll learn how deep learning works through hands-on exercises in computer vision and natural language processing. You’ll train deep learning models from scratch, learning tools and tricks to achieve highly accurate results. You’ll also learn to leverage freely available, state-of-the-art pre-trained models to save time and get your deep learning application up and running quickly.
Book of the Week
Trust in Machine Learning
Trust in Machine Learning reveals the four principles of trustworthiness that humans and machines both share: accuracy, reliability, openness, and selflessness. You’ll master practical techniques for achieving trustworthiness as you explore real-world use cases drawn from author Kush Varshney’s extensive career, including a peer-to-peer lender and an automated résumé screening service.
You’ll learn how to handle the inevitable distribution shift between training and operating data, measure and mitigate bias and unfairness, and be robust to deliberate sabotage from adversarial attacks. Interpretability techniques demystify how your ML makes its decisions, and transparent reporting mechanisms ensure your whole pipeline is open and explainable. You’ll discover the dark side of AI such as filter bubbles and malicious deepfakes, and learn how to prevent unintended consequences from arising. Finally, you’ll see how machine learning can be used with real benevolence to empower nonprofits and do social good.
