d335: OpenAI CTO Greg Brockman

OpenAI CTO Greg Brockman on being the CTO and OpenAI: https://blog.gregbrockman.com/define-cto-openai

“Overall, machine learning systems can be thought of as a machine learning core — usually an advanced algorithm which requires a few chapters from Ian’s book to understand — surrounded by a huge amount of software engineering. The engineering can be shuffling around data, providing wrappers around inputs and outputs, or scheduling distributed code, all of which interface with the core as a black box. A machine learning advance happens when engineering effort plus research effort exceeds some threshold.”
