It's unbelievable how much you don't know about the game you've been playing all your life.
What can you now do on a Z that you couldn’t do before?
I can run more experiments for Kaggle competitions, helping me become a better data scientist professional.
What is the next thing you want to learn or experiment with on your Z?
I would like to run more experiments with novel neural network designs for solving data science problems.
How has access to powerful NVIDIA GPUs helped to push your work further?
It helps knowing that I have a machine setup exactly how I like it, and it’s ready to go whenever I have a new modeling idea. I don't need to worry about paying fees every time I want to try a new experiment.
What’s your favorite Z feature?
The Z8 has a lot of local memory and CPU compute power, which helps speed up data loading, even when models are trained on the GPU.
