One helpful tip per day:)

Ben Kuhn looks back on his past and realizes that since the beginning of his studies, he has tended to solve hard problems. Such a choice certainly works in school because it gets you higher grades, but not necessarily in the real world. So he suggests that in reality, we need to focus on important problems, not hard problems.

This is very similar to training machine learning models. In school, we only need to consider the metrics of the model itself when we publish a paper, and of course the higher the better. However, in industry it's completely different, because the model metrics and the business needs are not always aligned, and the metrics that measure how good the model is are not just the metrics of the model itself, but there may be some external metrics, such as processing speed and so on. So in industry, training a model requires a wider range of considerations, and choosing how to measure a model is more important than choosing what model to use.
