    I believe what we do is as important as our ability to share it with others

    Convolutional Neural Networks to analyze images

    ODSC 2020 talking about how to process images with Convolutional Neural Networks

    In this session I focused on image processing using Convolutional Neural Networks. These algorithms were introduces in the 50s and 60s thanks to studies on cats' brains, and are quite different from other Neural Networks, trying to mimic the functioning of our visual cortex.

    Spark +AI Summit

    Working with 1 MIllion Time Series a Day

    It's been such an honor to be among the speakers at Spark + AI Summit. This is the biggest event worldwide concerning Apache Spark, the most performing among the (few) analytical tool allowing to analyze huge amounts of data very quickly. Apache Spark has become the de facto standard for Big Data Analytics in just a few years. The technology was created within the University of California, and subsequently donated to the Apache Software Foundation, Apache Spark provides up to 100 times better performances with respect to the previous paradigm, Hadoop’s MapReduce.

    This solution is having great success among Data Scientists who need to minimize their models’ training and prediction times.

    In my session here I presented a proprietary solution ideated by Dataskills to carry out semi-real time analysis of a huge amount of time series data, for which to give a precise prediction of future behavior by use of a single computational engine.

    Transfer Learning

    WPC 2020 talking about Natural Language Processing

    This year at WPC I covered a central topic in Machine Learning, useful especially when working with images, videos and text.That is, transfer learning, which means exploiting existing models, usually very powerful because trained on huge amounts of data, in order to create better ad-hoc models for our own problem, but much faster and with better predictive performances.

    Campus Party Milano 2018

    Machine Learning in Action : from theory to applications

    It was such an experience to talk to 200 super-interested people who were there listening to me to know more about the exciting field of Data Science. As always, I tried to share my passion for Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining with some examples of the lastest applications of Machine Learning models.

    Campus Party is a global event connecting young entrepreneurs, students and investors in the tech industry. It already experienced 72 editions in 13 different countries. I was honored to give a speech in the 2018 event in Milan: "Predictive Analytics in Action: from theory to applications" with around 200 participants showing up to listen to me. Such good vibes, I hope to do it again soon!

    WPC Milano 2018

    Applied Machine Learning: from theoretical to actionable deep learning structures

    WPC is the biggest italian event on Microsoft technologies and I was very honored and excited to give a one-hour class on a very cutting-edge topic such as that of Deep Learning.

    Metail Customers Welcoming

  • An International Life

    US to UK

    LEÀRNING a language, MEETING new people, DISCOVERING a New culture

    Chattanooga, Tennesse, USA 🇺🇸 2010

    LEARNING a language, MEETING new people, DISCOVERING a different culture
    Being an exchange student is the most formative experience I've had in my life. Not only I learnt the language as good as I could have possibly done, but I found a new me.
    I realized I was able to deal with many things which were previously fixed by my parents and, most importantly, I experienced a cultural difference that has been really useful afterwards in order to put up with people coming from different realities.
    LEÀRNING a language, MEETING new people, DISCOVERING a New culture

    London, UK 🇬🇧 2016

    Moving out, having to deal with everything your parents did for you, starting to work a full-time job while continuing to study for exams

    The most important experience after having lived in the United States. I not only learnt a new job, but also how to build honest and strong business friendships, I found out how people working with me see me, and on the basis of their feedback I did my best to continuously improve.

    I became psychologically stronger, learnt to deal with daily problems without external support, and proved myself that I could successfully work and study at the same time.

    LEÀRNING a language, MEETING new people, DISCOVERING a New culture

    Back in London 🇬🇧 2020

    I'm back, more resilient and stronger than ever

    I always knew that my future would have been abroad, because diverse, international and fast-moving environments are the most stimulating for me, and thus the ones that help me do my best. After an incredible experience as a Data Scientist in Milan, where I had the opportunity to learn the job being mentored by one of my former university professors, and founder of the firm, I finally decided it was time to take the next big step, and moved back to London in May 2020, during the biggest pandemic ever experienced in my lifetime (COVID-19).

    Moving during those times has been all but easy, and the virtual onboarding has been far from what everyone had expected, but to me being here now really shows that nothing is impossible to do, if you really believe in it.

    Hot Oaks Band 🎹 🎸

     

    Founded in 2007 together with the drums player, the band started off with different components and only after a couple of years was set up in the final composition.

     

    From 2010 onwards the band has several gigs around Milan and also took part to contests.

     

    The main genre played is rock and the band was concentrated on playing the songs with their own personal flavor.
