"When art critics get together they talk about Form and Structure and Meaning. When artists get together they talk about where you can buy cheap turpentine." - Picasso

This talk will be a discussion of techniques on areas such as interpretability and explainability in ML, training with limited data, incorporating expert inputs and domain knowledge, complexities in problem formulation and usability in the larger business context.
