Hi. Welcome to my website.

My name is Beunguk Ahn. I am a software engineer. My interests are web development, server engineering, and deep learning. Especially on deep learning, I am interested in model compression, which reduces the size of models in various ways. Though those are my favorites, all kinds of fields related to software would be my potential interest. I am also happy to find a new problem and solved it in "software" way. Finding interesting problems always refreshes me. Sometimes I write short stories or draw illustrations.

Followings are short version of my CV.
