As glamorous as it is to have your own Artificial Intelligence Optimized On-Premise Data Center, it doesn't come easy. It is absolutelly true that if done right it boasts much better performance and much lower costs than resorting to the cloud or even using co-location to perform your processing workload when creating AI driven solutions. However, most people are not aware of what really makes an AI Optimized Data Center and end up building an expensive half-baked solution that can't perform o
My journey so far
17 September, 2020
My journey at Exponential Ventures started mid-2019 when I flew 7000 km to Exponential Venture’s headquarters in Chicago. During my first day of work at the HQ, I met the team members, saw their data center with several servers and XNV’s (that's how we abbreviate the company's name) lab where there is a laser cutter, 3D printers, and a CNC machine. Right at the beginning two of my beliefs changed: Machine Learning (ML) is easy and cheap and Python has a weird syntax that I will hate it forever.
