  10. 10. "I am currently developing a learning algorithm for a neural network on a graphics card. While it’s quite close to my interests in machine learning and distributed/parallel computing, it has offered me the chance to gain more practical experience in this field. The manager who I had the phone interview with took a direct interest to find the most suitable project that matched my experience and interests. This says a lot about the way IBM values its employees." Adela-Diana Almasi Polytechnic University in Romania PhD Student, Computer Science Greater Minds 201210
