Hi, I’m Davide Nunes, a computer scientist located in Lisbon, Portugal.

My interests include:

  • Artificial [General] Intelligence
  • Deep Learning and Neural Networks
  • Computational Semantics
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Jazz, Saxophone, Music in General
  • Kung Fu, Martial Arts
  • Too many things, life is too interesting…

I’m doing my PhD in computer science at the University of Lisbon working in artificial intelligence at the Biosystems and Integrative Sciences Institute (BioISI). Though I’m working in machine learning right now, I also published work in Agent-Based Modeling, Social Simulation, and Complex Social Networks.

My current research focuses on natural language understanding and grounding, using machine learning techniques to learn computational representations for natural language expressions. I’m exploring a geometric analogy for meaning based on how words are used to solve a variety of semantic related tasks.
