Data Scientist, Entrepreneur and Speaker

I am an experienced Data Scientist, Speaker, Entrepreneur and AI Innovation Advocate.

I founded Lidinwise, a consultant company, to help companies take advantage of the opportunities of Machine Learning to leverage their data and create competitive data driven business. I work with big organizations, and Startups as well, as a strategic advisor and hands-on consultant.

I obtained a PhD in Physics and pioneered research in Deep Neural Networks back in 2000, with several publications in peer-review journals. I have extensive experience in machine learning and AI in international teams as lead data scientist and head of data science. 

More recently, I focus my efforts in helping organizations leverage the capabilities of machine learning and AI to become data driven and efficient. 

In my last book, Business Applications of Deep Learning, I discuss how AI will disrupt almost every business, from Banking to Medicine and the future of data driven organisations. 

I’m also interested in societal aspects and implications of AI and ethical consequences of decisions taken automatically by cognitive algorithms.
Pioneer in Deep Neural Networks with this publication in 2003 (cited in the recent review on Deep Learning by Jurgen Schmidhuber) and a more recent one on Applicationbs of Deep Learning in Biomedicine and Prediction of online user behaviour on an ecommerce site.

My book “Deep Neural Networks: Overview and Business Applications“. A summary in a format of book chapter is available here.
