Here is a blog about Marios being ranked at the top in Kaggle and sharing his knowledge with tricks and ideas.
Finally, Marios’ likendin profile can be found here, with more information about what he is working on now or past projects.
Bio: Jakub (or “Kuba” as we call him) completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Master’s Degree in Software Systems at Charles University in Prague. As a bachelor’s thesis, Kuba wrote a small platform for distributed computing of any types of tasks. During his master’s degree studies, he developed a cluster monitoring tool for JVM based languages which makes debugging and reasoning the performance of distributed systems easier using a concept called distributed stack traces. Kuba enjoys dealing with problems and learning new programming languages. At H2O.ai, Kuba works on Sparkling Water.
Aside from programming, Kuba enjoys exploring new cultures and bouldering. He’s also a big fan of tea preparation and the associated ceremony.
This will be a hands-on training of our groundbreaking products, H2O Driverless AI, H2O-3 and Sparkling Water. Join your fellow data scientists, developers and engineers in this technical deep-dive of H2O.
Don't forget to bring your laptop and power cord!
