When asked what he does, Alfredo stated “I am called a data scientist… but that’s more of a buzzword. What I do is operations research, which involves economics, mathematics, and programming. When combined, this is called artificial intelligence. I research data from various sources, transform it into mathematical models/algorithms and use it to optimize business operations and decisions.”
Why do you do what you do?
“I do artificial intelligence and data science because it involves a combination of all fields. Some think A.I. is just math with coding but to have a non-living system truly simulate intelligence requires an understanding of economics, psychology, sociology, neuroscience, and virtually any piece of knowledge within a decision maker’s brain. I just find that fascinating.”
What are your hobbies and interests?
“My interests vary but I like anime, video games, HBO’s Westworld, exercise, astronomy, physics, mathematics, operations research, economics, finance, business, and nano-biotechnology.”
What are your goals for the future?
“Eternal youth and immortality.”
