Lover of 🐧🐧. Pythonista 🐍. Machine Learning Engineer 🤖. Mad Scientist. Evil Mastermind. Walking Beard. Tinkerer. Nerd. Tech junkie.
Programming turned the tide of a crippling, panic-attacks inducing depression caused by a profound unsatisfaction with my choice of academic career. During 2016 and 2017 I developed a burning passion for Python, robotics, Linux, Open Source/Hardware/Data/Science, and all things Machine Learning, I devoted myself day and night to learn the craft. My passion never waned and my drive toward knowing more grows each day.
Currently employed as a Machine Learning Engineer at zuru.tech, there I lead the research effort on GANs (and everything else relating to either the generative or the adversarial world of Deep Learning), Computer Vision and act as the Supreme Overlord of both the Data Pipeline that feeds our AIs, and our internal dev-toolchain.
I am a prolific teacher/speaker/writer focused on spreading the Python and (Open) Data/AI/Science/Source/Hadware Gospel.
As of Spring-Summer 2019 I have also been the co-host of "La Scatola Nera" (The Black Box), a podcast (in italian) on the relationship between new emerging AI-powered technologies, philosophy and society.
