Data Scientist and Software Engineer; experienced Python and Java programmer. Main expertise and interests in machine learning, artificial neural networks, generative models, NLP, cellular automata, genetic algorithms, statistics and data science (data mining, analysis, prediction, visualization). Always open to explore and meddle with new technologies and paradigms.
Data Engineer at Zalando Dublin. Previously IBM Watson Solution Engineer. EIT Digital Master Graduate with a double degree in Computer Science from University of Trento (Italy) and ELTE (Hungary); specialization in Distributed Systems.
AI and ALife worshiper, really just waiting to welcome our new robot overlords. Until then the designated reigning is data. Love playing with it: understand mechanisms, recognize patterns and make predictions. Inevitably got involved in movements like Quantified Self and Transhumanism, as well as interested in VR/AR, Brain-Computer Interfaces and Mind Uploading.
Most of my open source projects are hosten on my Github account.
I write about technical topics, projects or secondary interests of mine on Medium. See for example
- Interactive Visualizations In Jupyter Notebook
- Personality for Your Chatbot with Recurrent Neural Networks
- On The Future of Life Logging — A Speculative View
- Facebook Conversation Analyzer
- Quest for Better Sleep with Fitbit Data Analysis
- Data Manipulation and Visualization with Pandas and Seaborn — A Practical Introduction
As a hobby I work on improving my artistic side, practicing regularly with drawing, painting, 3D modeling and generative art. Occasionally working as a freelance artist, realizing both traditional and digital artworks. Tools of the trade: Phothoshop, Blender and my loyal Wacom Intuos Pro.
Closely related to the Quantified Self spirit, I am also very concerned about personal optimization, which I loosely define as “improvement of personal efficiency, by means of analysis and tweaking of behaviors, habits and routines”. For such task, I want to suggest TiddlyWiki as a personal wiki. For time management I tend to follow the Pomodoro technique, and a combination of Toggl and Wunderlist as TODOs and habits trackers.
Additional interests include lucid dreaming, rhetoric, epistemology, behavioral science, skiing, fitness and nutrition.
