So, most people know by now that in a week’s time I start a new role. After 12 years of working for established business both small and large I am joining a start up in an area at the current edge of what is possible in computer science. I’m very much looking forward to having my technical and scientific abilities stretched as far as they’ll go and, not unsurprisingly, the immersion in a new venture where the focus is on the solution and not why things can’t be done (often the case in established companies).
I have a reading list as long as the references for my own thesis to get through in the next few weeks so I can become an expert in my new field: deep learning and artificial intelligence. One of the first things I’ll be doing is attending the ReWorkDL summit in Boston, MA, which is just a fascinating line up of some of the leading people in this space. All being well I will be presenting at the 2016 summit.
I’ll be tweeting throughout the event with thoughts and comments and will do a summary post afterwards.
