Erasmus in Lisbon

Written: 29 mar 2024


The beginning

What’s up everyone! I am Daniele and I’m just writing this to make this website a little bit more alive. I’m currently in Lisbon, Portugal, for an Erasmus experience. I’m studying at the Instituto Superior Técnico and having a little hard time with the period system they have here.

Right now is going kinda well, but I’m still trying to figure out how to actually LIVE. I mean, I’m not used to this kind of life, so I’m trying to adapt as much as I can.

Instituto Superior Técnico

The university is really cool, and at the same time, it’s really hard. I’m studying Electrical and Computer Engineering and I’m actually having fun with the subjects. I mean, there is this thing called Julia that’s kinda MHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. But at least, I’m having fun with the programming subjects. Having time to develope new skills in Information Retrival and Compilers is really cool. Luckily I was in a group with GOD himself that helped me a lot with the Julia thing. Also the Information Retrieval is cool, and the project was very interesting.


Just wanted to put the clustering photo here.

The city

Lisbon is amazing. It feels reeeeally safe for being a capital and the people are pretty chill. I actually didn’t meet that much of portoguese people, but the ones I met were really nice. Also a lot of Erasmus students are here, and I mean A LOT. Italians, Germans, Spanish, North Europeans, and so on. Shout out to Teo for being crazy and kind guy. Yeah shout out even to Michele aka Maiku22 for being with me here, even if he’s a little bit dormiendes.

The future

Yeah I should be working on my thesis, but for some unfortunate events I’m still waiting. I don’t have a particular topic in mind, even if there is some that has my interest. Of course it’s something related to Artificial Intelligence, more focused on some Deep Learning stuff. I’m actually waiting to see if all the exams are going well, and then I will start to think about it.

I don’t have that much to say, but I will try to keep this updated. I’m also trying to write some articles about some stuff I’m learning, so stay tuned! Here is a photo of a pidgeon.
