"That contrast really sets up a lot of interesting. I'll just say interesting dynamics between them and what kind of everyday pressures has no, like so many other black women in US publishing and not just US publishing face. Being the only one means a lot of things for Nella. The thing that is really hard for her is the fact that she feels like she has to speak for every black person every black opinion she's expected to speak, but in a certain way, right, she she has to come off in a way that's also appealing to her co workers, and that can change depending on what's in Vogue. What's popular? So she really has to kind of fit herself into the mold that they believe she should be in. I'm sure you knew this question. Was coming from the first moment You began to write the book. What are his fiction and what part is memoir? Ah, lot of it is fiction. A lot of it is exaggeration. I fortunately did not have it nearly as bad as knowledge as Axl wasn't the only black person where I worked. I was still one of few. Not many in the only black woman an editorial so so that that part of looking around this table and not seeing anyone who looked like me apart was very real. But the characters were very much of fun.

It was more for the reader because I want them to think about who they think would have left it for her on day. I think you can tell a lot about a reader. By what they expect. Oh, who? They who they kind of have in their crosshairs? Yeah, because there are a lot of suspects right there a lot of people who could have done it. And throughout this book, I really wanted readers to question their own prejudices, their own kind of analysis of certain interactions. And that note, I think is just one example. I found it said when I reached the part in the book where Anneli says that Hazel made her feel redundant. Yeah, I mean, it really goes into my own ideas that I have about. I mean, it's not only publishing. I think it's Lot of industries that are mostly white, where we commodified blackness where you only need this One version of this thing for this one purpose or is diversity is not like that. You have to be thoughtful about How you're speaking with people How you see the office Because all of those things matter they make a difference into whether or not a piece feels inclusive. So when he's ALS in the space, Nella feels like Okay, well, they have someone else who dresses cooler than me who speaks on these things much more clearly and confidently than I do. Everyone seems to love her. My purpose here. My worth here is in question. Now. No one's cooler vanilla, But I'm just I'm just well, Thank you. Someone you really put her own personal.

Take My hand was Dr King's favorite zone and Sistema Hey, you're Jackson was my idol. She was my hero. I love this. So much listening to singer Mavis Staples praising my Hayley and Jackson is just one highlight of the film. In a normal year. There'd be long lines of festivalgoers standing in the snow to get into theaters to watch. This year films will be screened virtually through especially built online platform, says the festival's new director, Tabatha Jackson. The global pandemic hit And we realized that we had to re imagine everything. Jackson says her team wanted to create a wafer, filmgoers and filmmakers to gather will be able to chat with each other in virtual waiting rooms. Then watch film premieres together before asking questions of the casts and crews, and that's to preserve the energy and the excitement on the buzz and the conversation. In that moment, as we are confined in our Safe spaces. This is an opportunity to go out into the world and be taken around the world by some of these films as an international festival dedicated to independent filmmaking, the Sundance Community prides itself on being a bit scrappy. We're excited. I think this feels like a grand experiment, so people who are they couldn't afford it or couldn't make the journey. Couldn't navigate the icy streets of Park City can now come to Sundance. We're bringing Sundance to them. This year, Half the films at Sundance were directed by people of color as well as by women.

Among the feature films to watch for is Koda, about a hearing girl whose family is deaf, also sons of monarchs, about a Mexican biologist and flee and animated film about an Afghan refugee. Other highlights included documentary about choreographer Alvin Ailey and another about the life and career of actress Rita Moreno. Life can be pressing America what was different about Anita and with side stories that she was a girl who respected herself. Who had a certain amount of dignity. Actually, she became my role model. The festival will also include online panels, meetups concerts and parties, many of them free. There will be virtual spaces for black and Latin. Next creators, and Jackson says festival goers can participate in the new frontier program using Webcams or virtual reality headsets from home, you Congar! Oh, in as an avatar, you can wonder around this incredible space garden. Go to parties, which are where people are going to gather to talk about films. We felt a cinema house in this virtual environment, and there's an extraordinary gallery off new work. The reason I'm so excited about it is because it really is an unusual space in which we can still come together and socialize, and it doesn't feel anything like Zoom.

And that's one of the things that you're focusing on with your company at tectonic and with your prior work on michelangelo at uber wondering if you can just start by describing what is encompassed by that term when somebody says operational emel having operational we think of it as you know. Machine learning built into production or customer facing application and refers to not just the machine learning algorithm but really the about treating the l. system is a complete operational data application and so a common distinction that can be helpful as this notion of analytic machine learning where a lot of use cases where mo exist in. The enterprise today is really for kind of internal consumption so you might have your analytical data sets in your warehouse and building machinery models that are used to power internal analyses deliver insights or even like internal off forecasts or something like that and really focused on powering kind of human decision making human actions. And that's really like analytical machine learning that we think of as quite different from operational machine learning that is really driving production automated decisions in action in your product. You know an example of this like fraud detection system real time pricing algorithm personalization system. You know product recommendations add bidding stuff like that and these operational machine. Learning systems tend to be battle-tested and fully production is the power use case that need decisions now not in a report next week kind of thing and tend to be really high stakes and affect the bottom line so there's syria software engineering projects that need a different level of care and production ization than like a standard mel project. You might work on kind of in the lab bird to do some one off analysis within a company. There's a fairly robust set of tooling available for traditional application delivery for somebody who wants to put a web app into production or be able to automate deployment of cloud resources. I'm wondering what the complications are. And the additional difficulties are for people who want to be able to bring these intensive applications and real time machine learning workloads into production and some of the complexities and challenges that exist on that path. There's a lot of differences but ultimately we should be using those tools right and the tricky thing is that people just aren't because these applications are not just code our writing. But they're artifacts from some data that we have so that's what model right it's artifact from running some code. On on some data but also live data pipelines the power these models and they need to be monitored in a different way when the production and so the kind of artifacts that were deploying to production are slightly different than standard software engineering projects. But secondly there's a a totally different like set of people who are involved. In different skill sets involved in building and deploying these projects we have sometimes analysts but very frequently data scientists who come from a very broad range of skill sets. Who are coming up with these models coming up at the features that power these models and the production ization process for these models but also the feature pipelines are. These models are like different the feature pipelines aspect of something that is worth calling out and i had another conversation with somebody on my other podcasts talking about some the concepts of feature engineering and feature stores and wondering if you could discuss a bit more about the level of importance of that capability for operationalizing machine learning and some of the ways that the definition of features impact the capability of the model particularly once it gets to production but for the teams who are trying to iterative on an experiment on building a model that is going to be useful for their particular goals to kind of recap features what are features. They are the signals in power. Your machine learning that are inputs to your machine learning models right so if i'm making <hes>. Five a recommend our system you know an important feature might be has. This user purchased an item from this vertical before or something like that and so these signals are really like the critical pieces of input that power our machine learning models but also affect these machinery models. Performance and so feature engineering is the process of coming up with these signals. And then there's this element of putting these signals into production which is a completely separate challenge and so the concept of a feature store has risen and it kind of came from stuff that we developed at when we built the michelangelo platform. We came up with the notion of a feature store which is really kind of like a central hub for the definitions transformations and the data. That power these feature pipelines and all of the infrastructure to serve as features in production so that has become
