A brief history of time
저는 컴퓨터를 좋아하는 이태리의 시민이자 미국의 시민입니다. 2009년 토론토 대학을 졸업했고, 재학 기간 동안 일본의 게이오 대학과 한국의 서울 대학을 다니며 동아시아학을 공부했지만 제 전공과는 또 다른 컴퓨터와 관련된 일에도 남다른 열정을 갖고 있었기에 스스로 공부하며 실력을 쌓았습니다.
2013년 4월 런던에서 대규모 검색기술을 기반으로한 Funnelback 회사에 시스템관리자 대리 직급으로 입사했습니다. 객체지향프로그래밍과 함수프로그래밍에 능통합니다.
I'm quite good at
Ruby enthusiast and Rails aficionado. Very comfortable with MVC development and PostgreSQL is often my database of choice.
Proficient with server setups, user creation, package management, bash scripting, log rotation, automated backups, server synchronization, etc.
Familiar with crawlers, faceted & contextual navigation, content indexing, n-gram edit distance, semantic searches and much more.
GNU/Linux geek since age 14. I am familiar with everything from kernel compilation to fstab setup. The command line and Vim are my best friends.
I want my work to consistently be pixel perfect - from internal code to outward design.
I like to add a bit of dynamics to my web apps, so I tend to make things slide and bounce :)
If something needs to be done more than once, DevOps tools are key. I deploy apps, manage systems and crush complexity.
I've often setup web servers, proxy passes, round-robin load balancing and the like.
Version control has saved my bacon more than once! I use Git religiously.

Always challenging myself to learn
Deep learning is driving advances in artificial intelligence that are changing our world. The course covered Convolutional and Recurrent Neural Networks, Generative Adversarial Networks, model deployment and more using PyTorch. The course instructors include: Sebastian Thrun, Ian Goodfellow, Jun-Yan Zhu, and Andrew Trask.
This course teaches the foundations of AI with Sebastian Thrun, Peter Norvig, and Thad Starner. It covers Game-Playing, Search, Optimization, Probabilistic AIs, and Hidden Markov Models. Projects include a Sudoku solver, a Pacman game that uses search to travel through a maze, a planning agent to determine air cargo transport systems and a word recognizer for American Sign Language video sequences, using probabilistic models.
The course covers algorithmic techniques and ideas for computational problems arising frequently in practical applications: sorting and searching, divide and conquer, greedy algorithms and dynamic programming. This course also covers how sorting data helps for searching; how to break a large problem into smaller pieces and solve them recursively; when it makes sense to proceed greedily and how dynamic programming is used in genomic studies.
This course covers search engine technologies, which play an important role in data mining nowadays. It investigates how search engines and recommender systems work. Concepts such as stemming, 'bag of words', probability ranking, Vector Space Model, Term Frequency (TF), Inverse Document Frequency (IDF), pivoted length normalization, BM25, Unigram Language Model, Rocchio algorithm, PageRank, HITS, and many other concepts (along with their benefits and weaknesses) are discussed.
In this course students learn programming in R, reading data into R, creating data graphics, accessing and installing R packages, writing R functions, debugging and organizing R code.
This course investigates the basic concepts behind programming languages, with a strong emphasis on the techniques and benefits of functional programming along with many other topics, such as modularity and the complementary benefits of static and dynamic typing. Languages used in this course include SML (functional programming), Racket (multi-paradigm) and Ruby (object oriented).

Deep Learning has taken the world by storm in recent years. Whereas computer algorithms were already able to beat the leading world chess players in the late ‘80s, the most famous success story being the victory of Deep Blue over then World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov in 1997, other games...
Logs are an important part of any web application. Too few logs make debugging issues a problem. On the flip-side, too many logs can make a disk max out of space, or finding a specific error harder than it should be.

If one wished to find a book in a library before the digital age, one would seek a librarian and request the book either by title or by author. The librarian would then go through stacks of books and retrieve the desired text. If one knew that the library organized its books by ISBN, one might...
독도는 두 개의 작은 섬, 동도와 서도로 이루어진 섬이다. 동해에 위치한 작은 면적의 이 땅은 일본과 한국으로부터 거의 같은 거리에 있다.
다른 나라들이 이 바위섬들을 접하면서 독도에는 몇 개의 다른 이름이 붙여졌다. 1849년 프랑스 포경선 리앙쿠르트(Liancourt)는 독도를 리앙쿠르트 바위들(Liancourt Rocks)이라고 이름지었고, 그 뒤 유럽에서는 그렇게 알려졌다. 1855년 영국 군함 호넷(Hornet)은 독도를 접한 후 독도를 호넷 바위들(Hornet Rocks)이라고...
