Bringing Machine Learning into the Digital Nomad Lifestyle
The story of Michael in Berlin. The future of AI people
All Remote interviewed Michael who is currently based in Berlin in Germany.
He is the co-founder of a Machine Learning platform that forms distributed teams of young talent and experienced developers to help companies build algorithmic solutions.
1: To which countries have you been in the last 12 months? Can you tell me about some interesting experiences there?
I have been to Spain, Israel, the USA, and my last trip brought me to Japan. All of these countries offered unique experiences.
Starting with climbing up the stairs to Toledo in Spain, wandering the streets of Tel Aviv by night and experiencing the ancient architecture in the Old City of Jerusalem, to exploring the multi-faceted culture in Japan.
Some of the most precious experiences I made in a Buddhist temple in Kyoto while a few days I was floating amidst the busy crowds in the streets of Tokyo.
2: Can you tell me about your business?
We are a community-driven platform for Machine Learning talent, connecting young talent and experienced developers to work on various use cases. So far we have more than 70 developers solving real-world problems with Machine Learning.
Our teams are distributed, in this sense they can work as digital nomads as well. That is how we are contributing to the future of work.
3: Where are the most beautiful places in digital nomad life? Tell me the top 3.
Ubud in Bali is a beautiful spot with diverse landscapes and extensive forests, and Bali offers many places for digital nomads to connect and share interests.
If you like it slower, Kyoto is a place where you can feel and see the cultural heritage with every step you take.
Also, I found Tel Aviv to be a vibrant city with many digital nomads, especially in the tech world.
4: What are the most delicious foods in your travel? Tell me the top 3.
The best sushi, I had in a small town close to Tokyo, prepared by a chef, who has crafted his skills for more than 70 years.
The best hummus I found in a small corner restaurant in Jerusalem.
Lastly, the freshest coconuts I had on an island called Isla Mujeres in Mexico.
5: Is there any pieces of advice or tips for another digital nomad to make remote work life better?
I think preparation is essential. As a digital nomad, you want to work in the most beautiful, most inspiring and most fun places on the planet.
Second, rank quality higher than quantity and slow down your travel pace. You need to make sure that you can attain a reasonable work-life balance that gives you the best of both worlds, work and travel.
Make a detailed plan for the week if needed but do not forget that going with the flow offers some benefits at times as well. Going with the flow can only work if you do not rush from one city to another.
6: What are the main three problems digital nomads have? (we hope we can solve it with our technology)
As mentioned before, balancing between work and exploration of the places you are going can be a challenge. This issue especially arises, if you are a high-frequent traveler, entering many different countries and places. Also, connecting to the local community can be a challenge if you do not have a starting point. Third, paper documents could be arranged more efficiently.
