[D] Siraj Raval — a Man Ahead of His Time
I recently watched Lex Fridman’s excellent podcast with Siraj Raval, and was completely taken aback by it. I used to be a mild Siraj hater, thinking that his superficial educational videos, not to even mention the raps, are misleading and completely unnecessary. However, the podcast made me see him, and his mission, in an entirely new light. I now believe him to be one of the most inspiring persons in the AI community I’ve had a chance to listen to.
As an homage of sorts, I put together a longer-form article, explaining his worthwhile mission to people who don’t have the time to listen to the hour-long podcast.
