The most amazing...

...prediction model I've coded outperformed the state-of-the-art models in that area by 15%. This model was also fast and easy to interpret.


  • Research intern

    2017 - PRESENT
    University of Buenos Aires
    • Analyzed the texts of news using natural language processing techniques. In particular, recursive deep models for semantic compositionality over sentiment treebank in order to detect the sentiment of a sentence, dimensional reduction algorithms and topic detection methods were used with the intention of characterizing the mass media bias during presidential elections.
    • Focused my study on developing better machine learning techniques which efficiently uses the information of a node and its neighbours. In addition, This new semi supervised methodology will be validated using graphs of biological and social origin.
