Luca Cazzanti says his wife calls him an "International Man of Science." The "international" part comes from having moved back and forth between Italy and the United States a number of times, plus his many travels and his job at NATO. The "science" part comes from working in research and development, both in academia and industry.
We're going to just go ahead and call Cazzanti GeekWire's latest Geek of the Week. As a machine learning and data scientist, Cazzanti has worked in diverse areas: maritime traffic analysis and prediction, consumer behavior analytics, digital music identification and recommendation, fraud prevention, digital telecommunications, and underwater acoustic signal processing to name a few.
