FastAPI for Machine Learning

Fast API almost never happened. Sebastián Ramírez, the creator of FastAPI, tried as hard as possible not to build something new. After many failed attempts at finding what he was looking for he decided to scratch his own itch and build a new product. The conversation goes over what Fast API is, how Sebastián built it, what the next big problems to tackle in ML are, and how to focus on adding value where you can.
