I do not usually hear podcasts (nor promote money related endeavours). But talking machines stands as a unique radio show on machine learning with a good balance between depth and friendliness.

They are currently a bit short on their funding goal for season two. 
Check them out, and if you like it, consider sharing a bit of your money.
 
WOAH! We're more than half way there! Help us get to the finish line! http://ow.ly/Sp9qM
Katherine Gorman is raising funds for Tote Bag Productions: Talking Machines on Kickstarter! Talking Machines is a podcast about the reality of machine learning research. Help us make a second season!

Quote of the day: "There is one thing that the Inceptionism pictures are good for: the press now uses those instead of Terminator pictures whenever they talk about AI"

It took me much longer than expected,
but I finally got around updating the "Who is the best at X ?" listing.
The updates are mainly on the classification task.

As always feel free to submit new entries, or send suggestions for improvement.

now hosts 200+ results across multiple datasets.

"Another bizarre feature of our early prototype was its propensity to respond with “I love you” to seemingly anything."
