We are humans who live in a society, and as part of it, we care about how others look at us. Are we good enough? Do we look great enough? Have we gained some pounds these Christmas? January is a good month to start good habits, (but the rest of the year is great to maintain them). Some of the typical habits we try to get are related to our body shape for this reason I decided to start this post about getting the perfect body shape with Machine Learning.

A common thing when you are falling in reverse is to don’t realize it by yourself. All your friends and close people are foreseeing your catastrophe but you are so happy petting your pink unicorn that you don’t realize how bad the situation is until it slaps your face.
The end of 2018 is nearly here (I mean I can already feel the pressure of 2019 over me). I figure this pressure is a sign to look back at the best and worst of 2018. It is an exceptional time to apply some reinforcement learning algorithms to my brain and to give all my best to the upcoming year.
When you enter the academic world as a Ph.D. student, you are full of motivation. You are confident about your knowledge, abilities, and capacities. Quickly, you start wondering on all of them. Am I good enough? Will I be able to solve it? Will I ever graduate?
I already wrote my professional experience at ICPR 2018 in my previous post. Anyway, I would like to take it from a different perspective, from my personal grown. Since I suffered from a huge personal transformation in this travel. So be prepared, this post is gonna be long!
Beijing and ICPR have been a very exciting and exhausting travel. It had a huge effect on me so one post will be not enough to explain how I feel now personally and professionally. So I’ll try to split my experience into two posts. This one for the professional grown and the apportion of this conference in my career. A future one with the personal experiences that have had a big and deep impact on me.
