Numbers, rational statements, and AI algorithms. These are the working tools of Antonio, one of our Data Scientists at Tappx. But he also has tones of irony for you… Keep reading to find out!
Answer: It was not intentional actually. I love artificial intelligence and data analysis. I was just lucky to find out I can really use and expand my field in the programmatic industry.
A: Not having to interact with the customer… Ups! Sorry, the wrong answer, let me try again. In my role as a Data Scientist, I really like finding patterns and developing new AI algorithms capable of improving and optimizing tasks, revenues, results, etc. It’s incredibly satisfying, only comparable to the feeling of having a clean room after a cleaning day.
A: Don’t learn the code, learn how to learn the code. I can guarantee you will always (absolutely always) find something new you have to develop. Even if it’s just because programming languages and technologies are evolving every day. It’s good to have strong fundamentals, but never think you are a good developer cause you have used many technologies. Think you are a good one when you are capable of implementing new stuff you had never seen before successfully.
Oh, and patience! Tons of patience!
A: I’m always looking into new AI trends and I’m very proud to have to build my first Transformer algorithms to translate Sign Language into text. It was one of the hardest problems I faced in my career.
A: Where to start? From a Data Science perspective, there is so much to do. Trends to have into account, the creation of targeting groups, contextualization of content, etc. I can definitely say the data guys will have a job in the future. Unless Elon Musk builds an AI that makes us obsolete of course…
A: I actually don’t send many emails. I receive a lot of emails regarding tasks and I also set lots of tasks for the team, which creates an automatic email as a notification. So you could actually say I do send emails… Anyways it would be around five emails a day then.
A: Probably WhatsApp, but also Google Maps, I got a motorbike and I can’t get my butt off the seat. I really like doing long trips and going to see new places, I honestly don’t know what I would do without Maps indications.
A: It’s either exercise or music. Lately, I’ve been singing a lot. To my housemates’ misfortune, I love how it makes me feel.
I know, this was more rational and specific than you thought it was going to be, but come on, I’m a data scientist… What were you expecting?
