The Pop in your Job: What’s your passion?
For me, Artificial intelligence techniques (Deep learning in particular) have been the game changer for past few years. Several groups of people have been working on deep learning to create exciting AI applications including image and speech recognition. However, the hottest application of deep learning is creating a suite of features which when combined can make a car drive by itself. Autonomous driving is at the core of the amazing future brought upon us by AI, and I am glad that I am contributing to cutting edge technologies from the very beginning of my career.
