The importance of being jesting by Jakub Mojsiejuk
I am an Electronics and Telecommunications (i.e. Networking) undergraduate at AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow, Poland. My current research interest revolves around machine learning, Big Data architectures and spintronics. Although my background is in engineering, I hope for a future research career in an exotic mixture of artificial intelligence and physics (quantum machine learning anyone?).
As much as I enjoy myself, there is always a certain discomfort when sharing a personal note. Therefore, to indirectly evade this problem (avoiding problems and responsibilities always worked for me) I have put up a quick doodle to highlight the key aspects of my inexplicably complex personality
So far, I’ve had a chance to participate in a training week which is a part of the PRACE Summer of HPC programme – over 20 potential future researchers who a share passion and belief in science (so lofty) have met in Edinburgh to learn the craft of HPC parallel programming.
I think this is a perfect moment and place to list my expectations about my participation in the PRACE Summer of HPC programme. Defining clear goals and hopes helps in focusing on completing tasks effectively. I plan to make the most of the next two months, so here we go:
- chance to work on the newest HPC technologies and participate in the trending research topics
- meet interesting and inspiring people
- have an opportunity to work with top-notch researchers
- experience a vibrant city for 2 months, possibly do lots of sightseeing
In the last post I will attempt to compare the outcomes of my PRACE SoHPC experience against this list above, but for now I’m left with an itching curiosity and positive attitude.
That’s all folks, see you till the next post!
