Hi - my name is Alberto and here is my quick intro. 

Where you're from/where you live
I'm originally from Colombia but moved away as a child. I moved to the US and graduated from GATech as an electrical engineer. I'm now in the Toronto area in Canada with my family and 3 kiddos.

Why you’re interested in data science
I did a career switch to analytics about 10 years ago. I started out doing simple Excel reports and have been growing my skills ever since. From Excel, to SQL, servers, then python, to cloud, advanced analytics, business intelligence, and a natural evolution is now AI/ML.

What courses you’re taking or have taken
I have taken a few courses on ML theory, some of ML with python (sklearn, etc). Spark, and more recently I completed the Data Engineering specialization from Google. From there I went on to complete the ML with Tensorflow on GCP, and I'm now on the Advanced ML with TF specialization from Google. I have a few other courses on my wishlist, including Deep Learning, ML for Trading, and IBM AI Engineering.

Which topics/projects you’re especially interested in
I took an intro to Tensorflow and found it quite challenge... at least the way it was explained, so I'm going to take other courses that help me get a better grasp of TF. My focus is on applied AI and data science. I enjoy all the math that goes behind the different models but at the end of the day, I enjoy the engineering side more.

What you can help someone with / what you’re looking for help with
I'm on the GCP journey so I can help people that are on the journey right behind me. I'm still fairly new at ML or AI engineering or the area of MLOps, so this is an area that I want to develop further. At some point I’d like to be able to mentor the next generation of data professionals.

How data science has influenced your life
I'm passionate about data and data science has open new opportunities for me to grow professionally, outside the areas of analytics. I've learned to appreciate how data science can be a major driver in business decisions as well as all the practical applications in real life.

Badge

Where you're from/where you live

I live in Houston TX, US.

 

Why you’re interested in AI / ML

I have been interested in AI & ML for the past 10 years. Particularly, I continue to pursue applications of AI & ML to problems in the Financial Industry. More specifically, I am interested in developing models for Portfolio Optimization and to trade baskets of selected correlated securities 

 

What courses you’re taking or have taken

  • Reinforcement Learning Specialization from University of Alberta and Albert Machine Intelligence Institute
  • Machine Learning for Trading Specialization from Google Cloud and NY Institute of Finance
  • DeepLearning.ai Tensorflow Developer Specialization
  • Mathematics for Machine Learning Specialization from Imperial College London
  • 2 out 3 courses from Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning in Finance Specialization from NYU 
  • 1 course from the Deep Learning Specialization from DeepLearning.ai

Currently completing:

  • Tensorflow 2 for Deep Learning Specialization from Imperial College London
  • Advanced Machine Learning Specialization from HSE

 

Which topics/projects you’re especially interested in

AI/ML applications to the Finance Industry: Portfolio Optimization and Trading

 

What you can help someone with / what you’re looking for help with

Tensorflow, Keras, AI Gym, Python 3, C#, .NET, SQL, Data Acquisition & Cleansing,

On & Offline Model Training, Data Visualization, Model Deployment, AWS

 

How AI/ML has influenced your life

Given my interest in trading of financial securities, I have realized that AI & ML can be used to:

  • Optimize algorithmic strategies to improve risk management and overall profitability and stability
  • Discover & exploit patterns that are either too complex or too brief for human intervention
  • Through continuous training, AI / ML models can be trained to adapt to ever changing market conditions

Hey, I am Pavan from Ahmedabad, India.

I really got amazed with the idea of how this AI technology is changing the world. At first I took the Machine Learning Course from Stanford University to explore this field and to get some basic idea about machine learning and there I found my interest in Machine Learning.

I have taken Complete Python Developer Course from Udemy by Daniel Bourke and Andrei Neagoie. Then I took the Complete Machine Learning from same instructor and currently I am doing this course.

I got basic idea of ml problem and so I would be diving deep into concepts and applying them into ML problem from kaggle.

Would love to connect with you all😊
