Almost 20 years after my first exposure to Machine Learning, I find myself in the middle of a fundamental transformation of the industry driven by this sophisticated technology. The explosive development of cloud computing is fueling the shift towards including ever more intelligence into modern IT platforms. In a few short years, machine learning delivered via cloud computing became a ubiquitous and affordable technology. The value unlocked for organizations is tremendous. Whether it’s about increasing sales by better understanding customers, saving money by predicting failures or incidents, or increasing the accuracy of medical diagnostics, my work related to machine learning helps people do work faster and smarter.
As spectacular as it is, the combination of cloud computing and machine learning is in many respects still limited. Based on the fabulous and totally counterintuitive principles of quantum physics, Quantum Computing promises to bring a new era in the way we understand and use computing power. Because I am a life-long quantum physics enthusiast, studying Quantum Computing is something I do intensively.
The speed of modern day changes is truly astounding. I firmly believe that we industry influencers have an important duty to share the knowledge we gain in complex and challenging projects. That’s why I always find time to talk to people about how and why our industry is changing. And I do this especially for the young following in our footsteps.
The most important thing I’ve learned in this journey is that my career would not be complete without both customer success and the sharing of knowledge. I am fortunate and proud to be among the ones that do both. My primary role is General Manager at Genisoft, a cloud and data science Microsoft Partner company based in Timisoara, Romania. I also act as a CTO for High-Tech Systems and Software. Since 2018, I've entered with Genisoft in the prestigious global Solliance family. Starting from January 2019 I am also the Chief Data Scientist at Solliance. I am recognized as a Microsoft Regional Director and as a Most Valuable Professional in Artificial Intelligence. And last, but not least, I'm a proud alumnus of the West University of Timisoara and a member of the awesome Codecamp comunity in Romania.
