  • Fast Gender Detection In The Wild Using Deep Neural Networks, research at UFRGS, Porto Alegre, Brazil
  • In this work we trained a Neural Network to detect and predict the gender of persons in "in the wild" images. (Soon I will publish the paper with implementation details and the datasets used in the training of the network)

  • "Fun" Summer Project: Telegram electronic bell and energy meter bot
  • At summer vacations I programmed a telegram bot that alerts when someone press the ring bell of my house and also measures the energy consumption. I used an Arduino, two non invasive sensors to estimate the energy consumption and an Ethernet shield to put the Arduino in the network. The server side was implemented using tornado in python. The server receives the "click" events and the energy readings of the house. If it receives a click event, it capture a image form an ip camera and send to my by telegram. It also notify the house consumption hour by hour. You can find the source code (buggy?) here: https://github.com/luiszeni/my_robotic_home

  • Worked fixing hardware and reinstalling windows (blerg) operating system. Here I learned how to fix your computer, printer, dog... \joke.
  • 12/2006 - 03/2007

  • Technical Computer Course at Alcides Maya, Porto Alegre, Brazil
  • At this point started my passion for programming computers and was where I decided to follow the path of a computer programmer. As final project I developed a tic tac toe game with a "sort of I.A." (ifs and more ifs everywhere) using C language and a primitive drawing library (I lost the code in old flopy disks R.I.P. =( ).
