Deep Learning in Depth: The Future of Deep Learning

November 2018 Podcast
Ritwik Gupta, Carson Sestili

Ritwik Gupta and Carson Sestili discuss the future of deep learning.

“Here is amazing research being done all over the world on how we make what is called explainable AI. How do we explain what the deep learning is trying to do? This is a problem across all fields.”


Software Engineering Institute




In this SEI Podcast, Ritwik Gupta of the SEI’s Emerging Technology Center and Carson Sestili, formerly of the SEI’s CERT Division and now with Google, discuss the future of deep learning. The SEI Podcast series is also available on the SEI website at, CMU’s iTunes Podcast Channel, and on Soundcloud.

About the Speaker

Ritwik Gupta
