In this episode, my guest is Diganta Misra, who is the founder of Landskape AI, which is a research lab aimed at solving the most challenging questions of Deep Learning. Diganta is a Mathematician who invented the activation function called MISH, which beats Google's activation function called Swish in most computer vision tasks. He released his paper last summer and the project got already 600 stars on Github. He is already working on the next activation function called SharkFIN, which will be even better than MISH.
