Francesco Pochetti, Data Scientist at Bolt
Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Hero since 2019
Francesco first got in touch with Machine Learning back in 2013, taking Stanford’s ML MOOC by Andrew Ng. Those lectures were the first step into the journey which, over 6 years, brought him from his original chemistry background into AI. Along the way, Francesco worked at Amazon Kindle in Luxembourg, first as a Business Analyst, then as a Data Scientist, boosting worldwide readers’ experience with predictive analytics. He then landed a job at Bolt, in Estonia, optimizing drivers’ bonuses with statistical modeling.
That was before coming back to Belgium, where he is now fully devoted to what he enjoys the most: leveraging the wonders of AWS AI infrastructure, playing around with new services, building ML solutions, and letting the world know about those on his blog.
This is where he regularly posts all his experiments in Machine Learning and Deep Learning. Most notably, within the AWS domain, Inferring movie genre from its poster in AWS SageMaker, Analyzing IMDb reviews sentiment with Amazon Comprehend or Running Neural Style Transfer with Lambda and GPU-powered EC2s.
