Daniel Soudry is an assistant professor and a Taub Fellow at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technion. His first work focsed on Neuroscience, attempting to understand how neurons work in the brain. He then continued to a post-doc at Columbia University, where he discovered his interest in both the practical concerns and theory of deep neural networks. This episode focuses on Daniel's research work on questions such as how to make neural network work with low numerical precision, and when are SVM and Logistic Regression the same thing? We also talk with him about his path in academia and the journey to discover his research interests.
