||Clean9. Machine Learning: Oh The Ways AI has Changed||Corey and Geoff discuss the algorithms all around us and how, in many cases, they've gotten CREEPILY good at what they do. How can a machine built by humans that is given little-to-no instructions from a human learn to play a game like chess better than any human ever could? How do you by proving you're "not a human" on a website actually teach cars how to drive themselves? Corey also brings out his background in Neuroscience and highlights some forms of machine learning attempt to mimic some connections we find in our own brain!||6/12/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean8. Servers and The Cloud: Amazon Secretly Holds the Internet||Corey and Geoff take a deep dive into servers. How do the servers at the New York Times manage to stay alive during peak hours like election night?

||Clean7. History of Computing 2: Evolution of Programming Languages||In the second half of "History of Computing", Corey and Geoff discuss the wild evolution of programming languages. Why do we have so many options for languages in the field of software and when would we choose one over another? What computational changes and industry demands cause the growth of new languages?||5/29/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean6. History of Computing 1: How The 1880 Census Led To Your📱||In this first part of "History of Computing", Corey and Geoff go over the brief history of computing from early mechanical sketches and "programs" to electrical machinery and the development of the modern system. How did some drama in census bureau during the 1880s lead to IBM and expedite computational technology?

||Clean3. Algorithms: Problem Solving and Logical Conniving||Corey and Geoff discuss algorithms in modern computing, the ways they are commonly designed, as well as some of their well-known limitations. These two accomplish this in a non-technical way by addressing Geoff's "obsession" with carnivals.||5/4/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
