  • What can you now do on a Z that you couldn’t do before?

    Z is fantastic for high computational and data intensive problems. I can now explore topics like 3D medical image processing, NLP, reinforcement learning, and video recognition. More amazingly, I can experiment new ideas and get the results within a day!

  • What is the next thing you want to learn or experiment with on your Z?

    I would like to try self-supervised learning. Also, I would like to combine deep learning with computer graphics and computer simulation.

  • What’s your favorite Z feature?

    I am impressed by the huge GPU VRAM from Z. With the HP Z8’s 96 GB, I can try the biggest and most powerful neural net and more data in my modeling.
