Bekannter "Ja nichts."
N.: "Nichts?"
B.: "Nee. Hausfrau und Mutter halt. Und sie kümmert sich 1 bisschen um meine Eltern. Die wohnen ja jetzt bei uns in der Anliegerwohnung, weil die kommen alleine nicht mehr so klar."

fchollet In the context of machine learning research, science and engineering are not distinct concepts. You don't do "science" by thinking very hard about platonic ML concepts and then publishing your thoughts. You do science by engineering systems that test small ideas, iteratively.
