Unsupervised is a podcast about Data Science in Israel. At each episode we interview an industry professional or a researcher from academia and discuss different aspects and problems in data science. We want to give a peek to what’s going on with data science across the Israeli industry and also to talk about different algorithms, tools, papers, methods and pretty much everything that’s interesting and related to Data Science and Machine Learning.

The podcast is aimed to data science professionals and researchers, as well as for those who work and collaborate with data science teams and beginners in the field.

All Episodes are recorded in Hebrew.
We want to thank Samsung Next for hosting us.

    From Researcher to Entrepreneur and DL for Medical Imaging, with David Golan

    David Golan was on the track to becoming a university professor. Then something happened that made him changed route. He co-founded viz.ai - a company that helps doctors detect strokes quickly. We talked about How to use Deep Learning when you don't have a lot of data; about the challenges in building an AI-oriented company in the field of medicine; and about how the time he spent as a researcher helps him as an entrepreneur.

    On the Interaction of Humans and Intelligent Systems, with Ofra Amir

    Ofra Amir did her PhD in computer science in Harvard, where she studied the interactions between humans and intelligent machines. In this episode we talk with Ofra about designing algorithms whose goal is to improve human performance in a given task, how to design metrics when some of your goals are not easily measurable, and how to explain the decisions of intelligent agents to humans.

    Data Science is more than just ML, with Nimrod Priell

    Yo data scientists, Nimrod Priell has a very important message for you - Data Science is much more than just Machine Learning. It may sound trivial when you think about it, but yet it's very easy to forget these days. Nimrod, a Data Science team lead at facebook, told us about 7 different products of a data scientist (only one of which is a machine learning model!), about the two metrics he uses to evaluate a product, and how it helps him to manage data science projects and build a versatile and diverse team. We found this talk very interesting, and hope you do too.
