Functional Programming is the next frontier in Machine Learning.  We see a reamandous uptick in using Scala, Haskell, Rust, and other FP languages for ML/AI, and we start learning best practices.  How does FP help scale ML?  What is it about the common proximity to math and physics that so many folks in the space share?  How does FP help in designing, building, and deploying AI, whatever it will become?  These are the topics of this panel, moderated by Vitaly Gordon, VP Data Engineering and Data Science, Salesorce Einstein, himself a hands-on FP+ML developer and speaker at both Scala and AI By the Bay.
