1. My first Kaggle competition

    Posted on August 4, 2017 by dontfollowmeimcrazy

    I knew of the existence of Kaggle since I started studying Machine Learning. Unfortunately, during that time I did not have the experience nor the time to take part to any competition. But in last semester I made some good experiences that helped me to develop my skills in the field. At the same time, an interesting real world problem was published as a competition on the  Kaggle platform. And so I realised that that was the best one to give myself a challenge. Planet Labs is a private company that owns the multitude of imaging-satellites that orbit around the Earth. These satellites form a constellation Read more…

  2. ASD Forest Park Crew membership registration

    Posted on June 20, 2017 by dontfollowmeimcrazy

    Hello everyone! During last spring I had the opportunity to do a little work for the ASD Forest Park Crew association (of which I am a member) that runs my hometown skatepark. To access our skatepark a person must be a member of our association. Until last year, to become a fellow a person had to present himself at the skatepark, pay the registration fee and then get a paper card valid for the access to the park. A classic registration scenario. Starting from this season we decided to automate and digitize all this process. So, I realized a little web-app to manage Read more…

  3. A first look to ImageNet

    In the last years a lot of coverage was given to Artificial Intelligence. During the last months of my Bachelor’s, reading more and more about the successful applications, I started to feel really curious about that area of AI called Deep Learning. Actually, Deep Learning is a sub-field of the more general Machine Learning, that is the field of Computer Science which “gives a computer the ability to learn without be explicitly programmed” (Wikipedia) or, in different words, aims to design programs that can improve their performance by “learning” from examples (a better and easier definition here). The theories of Deep Learning focus on building Deep Neural Networks (DNN), which Read more…

  4. FasterApp iOS version 1.3

    Posted on November 8, 2016 by dontfollowmeimcrazy

    Hello! I finally found the time to update my application, since iOS 10 came out. This latest version, which is 1.3, is already up on the AppStore. One of the greatest features of iOS 10 is the opening of Siri to developers. The things you can program Siri to answer to are still limited but I was willing to experiment them a little. So I managed to use Siri’s abilities to let the user start a gameplay modality just with its voice. My “programmed” phrases, that are consequentially recognised by Siri, fall in the domain of workouts and fitness. Examples are: “I Read more…

  5. SkiJumpingRaceManagerPro first test

    Posted on September 14, 2016 by dontfollowmeimcrazy

    Hi folks! Today I’m introducing you the project I’ve been working on for the last weeks. It’s been two years now since I started judging ski jumping national competitions. From the judge’s point of view, the job is simple and funny: you write your vote for every athlete on a sheet of paper until all the racers have jumped. What is tedious and needs a lot of focus it’s the task of the guy sitting behind the computer that, after or during the race, he/she has to insert into a software program all the distances and scores gained by every single Read more…
