Fortunately, with […]

The post covers his path to becoming a data scientist and how his persistence brought him to Ayasdi.  It is too good to try and summarize so I won’t do it that disservice.  Impressive […]

Compute power is undergoing some extraordinary advances of late and it has real implications for what can be done with computationally hungry software like ours. With the latest 2-socket servers now delivering in excess of 1TFLOPS, the raw compute available at relatively low price points is rapidly increasing.
