Carlos Baez

A.I Specialist

I love coding, for this reason, I am always learning new stuff. Mainly, I develop my projects in Java (mature products…) or if I want to prototype something: python or C++ (I loved it, it is the most flexible language…). Coding is my way to create something for the world and for this my real passion is Computer Engineering. If I am not thinking in some new stack, I am reading or searching some new beach for surfing. Currently, my main expertise is related to two areas: machine learning / Deep learning or network protocols.
