Visitin’ UC Irvine, Southern California

UC Irvine
Dear friends, I’m glad to inform you that from today I’m a visiting PhD student at University of California Irvine (Irvine, Orange County, Southern California, Usa). I’m going to work in the Pierre Baldi‘s research group at the Institute for Genomics and Bioinformatics of UC Irvine.

I’m going to stay here for some months, working on deep learning.

Stay tuned!

MetaOptimize, a Q&A website on Machine Learning


Some time ago I signaled BioStars.org, a nice Q&A website on bioinformatics. Now I’d like to invite you to visit another very interesting questions and answers website: MetaOptimize, dedicate to Machine Learning, and other stuff.

I strongly think that this kind of websites could get a lot of help and effort to the scientific communitiy, because allow scientists and researchers  to interact directly in a very constructive way. Another great Q&A website platform that you probably know is StackExchange.com, with its primadonna StackOverflow.com

To get more and more useful, these websites need more and more users. That’s why I invite you all to join MetaOptimize and these other Q&A websites: you’ll get even more than what you imagine!
