Hello! My name is Ronald Luc and I live in Brno and now for some time in Vienna. By day I study Mathematical Informatics at Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University and work as a Software Developer with a focus on implementing Machine Learning solutions.

On my spare time I help with organization of several educative projects for high schoolers, because I believe action-packed and competitive teaching. I enjoy reading scientific papers, especially about Data Science and Machine Learning – that’s also the reason I’ve created this blog. As a teacher I know you learn the most when trying the explain the curriculum.

I like to think about DNNs as a data-transformation tool.

I myself have developed and deployed two NLP projects (faceup.com, ulekare.cz). I worked for over 2 years on 3 ML projects in Artin (computer vision, sound processing). I love to read NN papers, think about them as data transformations and create diagrams of their architectures.
