Data Scientist, Entrepreneur and Speaker

I’m a PhD Physicist turned into a Data Scientist and Artificial Intelligence consultant with an entrepreneurial mindset. Passionate about how to make Machine Learning projects work for organizations and how to build great AI based products.

As algorithms are becoming a commodity, the challenge is not building them but using them to solve real problems.

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 Knowledge Representation on Graphs with Convolutional Neural Networks and Prediction of online user behaviour on an ecommerce site.

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

My TEDx talk 13 March (minute 11):

My new book chapter “Digital Markets Unleashed“, By Springer, August 2017 – on applications of Deep Learning and AI in Banks.
