In this ProcessMiner University podcast episode, Tom Tulloch chats with Dr. Chitta Ranjan, Director of Science at ProcessMiner, about his early life and education, what inspired him to write his book, "Understanding Deep Learning - Application in Rare Event Prediction," and the role deep learning plays in the evolution of artificial intelligence.
Those who know Dr. Ranjan, know he has a keen ability to take complex ideas and simplify them for all to understand... something he talks about during this session.
Fun fact: Throughout his experience writing this book, Dr. Ranjan became an unexpected expert chef, which he also delves into during this talk.
Listeners will walk away feeling inspired, motivated to learn something new, and maybe a little hungry.
