Nobody Has Figured Out How to Optimize for Deep Learning – Chris Thomas, McKinsey & Co


Christopher Thomas is one of the artificial intelligence gurus of Asia. He leads McKinsey’s Semiconductor Practice in Asia and is also their global head for digital strategy. And prior to McKinsey, he was the general manager for Intel China.

Plus, he’s a really good guy. Jonathan Woetzel (also McKinsey & Co) and I have been fortunate to have him as a guest lecturer in our courses at Peking University Guanghua School of Management.

The clip below is from his lecture. We will be posting more of these. Link here. Sorry only YouTube at this point.

Thanks for watching. I also did a short interview with him. Located here.

Cheers, jeff
