Mathematical theory and computers have been important domains to me ever since I was a graduate student. Recently, I have been conducting research and development on machine learning, data mining and AI. I try to appreciate on-premise issues and the characteristics of the data, bearing in mind that the solutions will be used in real society, avoiding to focus solely on theories and algorithms.
