In this episode of the Data Exchange I speak with Reza Zadeh, founder and CEO of Matroid, a startup focused on making computer vision applications easy to build and deploy. Reza is also an adjunct professor at Stanford.

Ray Summit has been postponed until the Fall. In the meantime, enjoy an amazing series of virtual conferences beginning in mid May on the theme “Scalable machine learning, scalable Python, for everyone”. Go to for details.

This particular conversation spanned many topics pertaining to computer vision, including:

  • Challenges in building large-scale, real-time computer vision applications.
  • Robustness of computer vision applications (adversarial attacks, deepfakes).
  • Impact of computer vision technologies on society: security, privacy and surveillance
  • We also preview the upcoming 2020 edition of the ScaledML conference: Reza is the main organizer behind one of my favorite conferences in the SF Bay Area.

I want this to be more than just a podcast but a whole community to help people make better decisions. An essential component is getting listeners involved.  I have ideas on how this community will grow but as a first step, I want to ask a question related to the main topic Reza and I discussed: computer vision. I’d love to have you weigh in by filling out the form below. I’ll report on results and key insights in a future episode of this podcast:
