Luca Belli was the Co-founder and Research Lead for Twitter's Machine learning Ethics, Transparency and Accountability (META) where he guided industry leading approaches for responsible ML practices and product changes. Previously he operated as a Data Science and Machine Learning Engineers at Conversant and WolframAlpha. His research interests lie at the intersection of feedback loops, algorithmic amplification (with a special eye on politics), and algorithmic audits. He holds a Ph.D. in Math from Tor Vergata University in Rome.
Having the opportunity to learn from other peers in the industry and the fabulous instructors was priceless. Their willingness to go the extra mile and immerse themselves with the cohort upon their work and life commitments was unmatched!
Samir was my instructor for my Stanford CS course, and there is no one better at explaining complex topics in bite-sized and fully understandable pieces. He helped go through many hands-on examples for each of the course concepts so students could get a deep and intuitive understanding of all of the course materials. I highly recommend Samir for anyone looking to get the most out of their learning experience.
