Disclaimer: this post is a summary of Chapter 2: My body is a temple, from my book: Machine Learning For Bearded Hipsters. You can support the project here.
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.
After I realized that I never would be winning an Olympic gold in the 200m butterfly, I spend many years thinking about what to do in life, researching which path should I follow to accomplish my life goals that were on reach. So, it’s not surprising that after many efforts in this research I became a researcher. First a news researcher (or call it journalist if you prefer) and later a scientific researcher.
