Congrats to Oswald Campesato, artificial intelligence instructor and tech author, who published his 30th tech book this year.
Campesato, MBA, MA, MIS, BSCS, BA, a software engineer with more than 20 years’ experience as a software developer, clearly loves learning.
This list of his books published just this year includes:
“I’m very fortunate to work with a fantastic publisher (we’ve known each other for 20 years) who invariably agrees with my suggested book topics,” Campesato says. “He gives me complete freedom to decide the actual content of each book, which enables me to focus entirely on the quality of the material.”
New AI Courses
Also in the last year, Campesato has developed advanced curriculum for several new courses at UCSC Silicon Valley Extension, including:
- Reinforcement Learning and Advanced Topics in AI
- Deep Reinforcement Learning
- Natural Language Processing
- Deep Learning and AI with Keras (now merged with Tensorflow)
He has helped us double the number of artificial intelligence-related course offerings at UCSC Silicon Valley Extension and launch this spring the first AI specialization—Enterprise AI Implementation.
“These new courses are substantively more difficult than our other AI classes, thereby enabling students to advance beyond our introductory DL and ML classes, which are taught at many universities,” Campesato says. “NLP and deep reinforcement learning have significant importance in AI.”
He also teaches Introduction to Machine Learning and Data Mining and has been a featured speaker at career events, and a Meetup last summer about Deep Learning and CNNs.
The Next Book
Technologists can expect to see a new book—NLP and Machine Learning—in the near future.
“Unlike some other fields, there will always be opportunities to write new technical books because of advances in technology (especially in AI),” Campesato says. “Since I’m a fan of life-long learning, I’ll always be motivated to write books.”
