I’m very pleased to announce the availability of a new special technology report that I was contracted to research, develop and write – “insideHPC Special Report: Riding the Wave of Machine Learning and Deep Learning” sponsored by Dell EMC and NVIDIA. insideHPC is the sister publication (specializing in high performance computing) to insideBIGDATA where I serve as Managing Editor.

The report focuses on how many companies are moving decisively to develop capabilities based on AI, machine learning and deep learning. In time-honored business fashion, the motivation is a combination of fear and hope. Competitive pressures are spurring companies on, and there is a sense of urgency among many enterprise thought leaders about not falling behind.

I was pleased to be invited as an advisor for a full-day UCLA Career Development Conference for Graduate Students and Postdocs on May 4, 2017 on the beautiful UCLA campus. My topic of expertise: Data Science. It appears that many newly graduated Masters and Ph.D. students, as well as post doctoral researchers are interested in making the transition to the field of data science. During the round table discussions, I had the opportunity to meet with and advise many bright young minds, all of whom would make excellent data scientists. They came from a diverse set of academic disciplines including statistics, neurosciences, engineering, bio statistics, psychology just to name a few. I truly enjoy these opportunities to share my experiences in the field which I believe is the best profession around!
