Talk it out

Abhijit Dasgupta on the need for cross talk between disciplines in data science and statistics.

This quote summarizes something I come across regularly coming from a stats background but reading a lot of machine learning papers:
The new guys are coming up against the same brick walls as the earlier researchers, and there seems to be a lack of understanding among the new researchers of the path already travelled (since the keywords are different and not necessarily directly related, Google Scholar fails).
I wonder how much that goes in the other direction as well.
