The show about to listen to features my interview with Erin Shellman. Erin is a statistician and data science manager with Zymergen, a company using robots and machine learning to engineer better microbes. If you're wondering what exactly that means, I was too, and we talk about it in the interview.
Our conversation focuses on Zymergen's use of Apache Airflow, an open-source data management platform originating at Airbnb, that Erin and her team uses to create reliable, repeatable data pipelines for its machine learning applications.
A quick note before we dive in: As is the case with my other field recordings, there's a bit of unavoidable background noise in this interview. Sorry about that!
