Where I have been has shaped where I am today. So, I’m grateful and blessed for all previous opportunities, as it’s led me to this announcement today. It’s an extreme privilege and honor to serve at VMware as a new Global Sr. Solutions Engineer. My main focus will be around vSAN (HCI) solutions for some of the best organizations in the world. I look forward to working with Frank Denneman, Pete Koehler and many others again. I also count it as a bonus to be in the same VMware business unit (SABU) as Duncan Epping! :)

I also look forward to exemplifying VMware values: “EPIC2” Execution, Passion, Integrity, Customers, and Community. I have noticed from the outside looking in that VMware has a great culture…

The state-of-the-art hardware platforms for training deep neural networks (DNNs) are moving from traditional single precision (32-bit) computations towards 16-bit precision, in large part due to the high energy efficiency and smaller bit storage associated with using reduced-precision representations. In the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) paper “Training Deep Neural Networks with 8-bit […]

Interpretability and performance of a system are usually at odds with each other, as many of the best-performing models (viz. deep neural networks) are black box in nature. In our work, improving simple models, we try to bridge this gap by proposing a method to transfer information from a high-performing neural network to another model […]
