Building Threat Detection Systems: An MLE's Perspective

There is a clear pattern that we have been seeing with some of these greats in MLOps. So many use writing as a forcing function to learn about where they have holes in their understanding of something. If you are not writing, this episode explains why writing is important for your own development. Jeremy goes into writing in depth as to how beneficial it is for him to write and for him to see that he doesn't understand something if he cannot re-articulate it in writing.
