🤖 Rodolfo De Nadai a.k.a rdenadai

I'm a middle age software developer from Brazil, trying to learn a little bit more about the world and better understand people strange and sometimes bizarre view of the world.

As a software developer i enjoy build programs to help others and learn more... The only thing that really drivers me further is knowledge.

  • 🔭 I’m currently working on Python projects! (future Rust?)
  • 🌱 I’m currently learning more about Machine Learning, Time Series and other topics in science.
  • ⚡ Fun fact: Computer geek and Star Wars fan!

🧐 My values

  • Most of the time you should try pondering things deeply
  • Do less with more
  • People have to be trustworthy
  • Nothing is impossible, except what you don't want to do

🤯 Think about

"As also what troops of diseases beset us, how many casualties hang over our heads, how many troubles invade us, and how little there is that is not steeped in gall?" The Praise of Folly, Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus

"One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin." Metamorphosis, Franz Kafka

"Before we can understand how to create intelligence, it helps to understand what it is. The answer is not to be found in IQ tests, or even in Turing tests, but in a simple relationship between what we perceive, what we want, and what we do. Roughly speaking, an entity is intelligent to the extent that what it does is likely to achieve what it wants, given what it has perceived." Human Compatible, Stuart Russell

"(...) there are no images, videos, or sound recordings stored in the brain. Our memories are stored as sequences of patterns. Memories that are not accessed dim over time." How to create a Mind, Ray Kurzweil

"In fact, it is essential to note that the verbal image is not to be confused with the sound itself and that it is psychic, in the same way as the concept associated with it." Curso de Linguística Geral, Ferdinand de Saussure
