What can you now do on a Z that you couldn’t do before?
I will use the power of Z to train huge models and participate in more competitions. I look forward to trying things out that weren’t possible on my previous devices.
What is the next thing you want to learn or experiment with on your Z?
I always wanted to explore, understand and develop natural language-based semantics solutions using deep nets. And next in my pipeline is to process huge data and train heavy models on my gear by using state-of-the-art machine learning and deep learning algorithms.
How has access to powerful NVIDIA GPUs helped to push your work further?
Experimenting with tech stuff has always been my interests since I was a small kid and now I do that daily with data. This love for understanding what these tiny bits of data says about big problems in the world and experimenting and playing with it to solve something each day excites and pushes me further to learn and contribute. NVIDIA's powerful GPUs have helped me a lot to do all the day to day experimentations in a fast and reliable way!
What’s your favorite Z feature?
I still find it exciting to see how Z packs enormous power in a tiny box.
