When building supervised learning models, I often come across situations where there is a large class of features I’d like to try adding, but the corresponding increase in model parameters seems daunting. For example, in my work at Khan Academy, many user models might benefit from knowing whether each our 4,000 videos has been watched by the user or not. I usually end up trying to engineer a heuristic summary feature—e.g., how many videos have been watched within a few broad topics?—which is time consuming, or just giving up.

And he oppressed. Yet he shall not die,
These things accomplish’d:—If he utterly
Scans all the depths of magic, and expounds
The meanings of all motions, shapes, and sounds;
If he explores all forms and substances
Straight homeward to their symbol-essences;
He shall not die.
