I'm a Data Scientist who loves Deep Learning, Statistics and Data. I also think that explaining a topic to someone is the best way to make sure you understand it, and firmly believe in Cunningham's Law: make many mistakes online, so people correct you and help you learn (for free!).
I study Computer Science and work as a Machine Learning Engineer.
In my free time, whenever I get some, I like reading Machine Learning papers, and making them into code. Then I try to put what I learn into my own words and teach it to someone else.
Most of the time I'm either studying Computer Science topics for College, or working in designing new Machine Learning models for Fraud Prevention at MercadoLibre.
GPT-3! OMG it's a Neural Network that can WRITE CODE. People who know a lot more than myself have predicted the Singularity is coming this year. I don't feel so opti-(pessi?)-mistic myself, but still feel like big things will keep coming.
So many things. Let's go with the obvious: Pandemic, Global Warming and Escalating Tensions between China and India (two nuclear states).
Preparation beats luck, every time.
I really like working remotely. I still miss meeting people over a beer of course. But I wouldn't say it has had a tremendous impact in my life just yet. Fingers crossed it will stay that way.
10% goes to effective charities, 45% in very safe NASDAQ/S&P index funds, the other 45% in small AI startups that look promising. But this is definitely not my area of expertise.
Wealth taxes should be higher everywhere, especially in the first world. Big tax evasion should be dealt with with at least as much attention and energy as drug trafficking and violent crimes.
Trello (browser), WhatsApp, Instagram, GMail I guess.
Parsers and Formal Grammars (at school), plus some NLP on the side. For fun, I'm studying Japanese.
For much the same reasons Hacker Noon decided not to put good ideas behind pop-ups or paywalls — nor abuse your personal data to target you with creepy ads — we also decided that you don’t have to be a #thinkfluencer or have 50k followers on Twitter to earn the recognition that comes with a 2020 Noonie Nomination.
Make somebody’s day and nominate them to be recognized in the internet’s most independent and community-driven awards: NOONIES.TECH.
