It’s Kale obviously, my little baby

What do you like most about your job?

Being able to contribute in a meaningful and measurable way to advancing the state of the art of the MLOps challenge.

Rock climbing above all, but really I am outdoor sports addicted. Whatever demands physical endeavors against the natural elements.
