Computer vision expert and experienced IoT systems engineer. Being in the Industry for the past 10 years, while Fernando has always been involved with data, finding his main interest in making sense out of images. Initially he worked in different financial software applications, from handling start-up loans to micro and small enterprises to investment portfolio optimizations. He then moved to a different industry, working with a manufacturing company, building a complex data gathering system from IoT devices scattered throughout the USA, and performing OCR from equipment plates.
Amazed by the challenges presented by image processing, he kept that path, working later with what would later become an unicorn company, helping them to automate some of their processes that dealt with images. He holds an MSc from UdelaR focused on Computer Vision, publishing in IEEE TPAMI as part of it.
