Tech Bros, in Heaven

Dude, what do you think about these convolutional neural networks we’ve switched over to? They’re rocking it right? Totally! Throughput is through the roof, the clients are loving it, and now that we’ve got it set up we basically sit back and let it do all the work! I know Peter is fucking loving it …
