As of the beginning of January 2020, it’s my great pleasure to join The Machine Learning Times as editor in chief! I’ve taken over the main editorial duties from Eric Siegel, who founded the ML Times (also the founder of the Predictive Analytics World conference series). As you’ve likely noticed, we’ve renamed to The Machine Learning Times what until recently was The Predictive Analytics Times. In addition to a new, shiny name, this rebranding corresponds with new efforts to expand and intensify our breadth of coverage. As editor in chief, I’m taking the lead in this growth initiative. We’re growing the MLTimes both quantitatively and qualitatively – more articles, more writers, and more topics. One particular area of focus will be to increase our coverage of deep learning.
And speaking of deep learning, please consider joining me at this summer’s Deep Learning World 2020 – May 31 – June 4 in Las Vegas – the co-located sister conference of Predictive Analytics World and part of Machine Learning Week. For the third year, I am chairing and moderating a broad ranging lineup of the latest industry use cases and applications in deep learning. This year, DLW features a new track on large scale deep learning deployment. You can view the full agenda here. In the coming months, the MLTimes will be featuring interviews with the speakers – giving you sneak peeks into the upcoming conference presentations.
In addition to supporting the community in these two roles with the MLTimes and Deep Learning World, I am a fellow analytics practitioner – yes, I practice what I preach!

And finally, Attention All Writers: Whether you’ve published with us in the past or are considering publishing for the very first time, we’d love to see original content submissions from you. Published articles gain strong exposure on our site, as well as within the monthly MLTimes email send. If you currently publish elsewhere, such as on a personal blog, consider publishing items as an article with us first, and then in your own blog two weeks thereafter (per our editorial guidelines). Doing so would provide you the opportunity to gain our readers’ eyes in addition to those you already reach.
I’m excited to lead the MLTimes into a strong year. We’ve already got a good start with greater amounts of exciting original content lined up for this and coming months. Please feel free to reach out to me with any feedback on our published content or if you are interested in submitting articles for consideration. For general inquiries, see the information on our editorial page and the contact information there. And to reach out to me directly, connect with me on LinkedIn.
Thanks for reading!
