Rodolfo Ferro’s major in mathematics gave him a different introduction into hackathons and allowed him to apply a unique mathematical perspective to all of his projects. From developing a biometric security system for ATMs to collaborating on research on facial expression recognition tasks at an HCC lab, Rodolfo is working with cutting edge technology to help improve our everyday lives. In addition to this, Rodolfo currently helps to organize local hackathons in his state and co-organizes science workshops.
These hackers are people who have stood out from the crowd and done something exceptional within the hacker community. Whether they were creating an event to bring CS education to their area, working to make the tech world more inclusive, or programming a project with a positive impact on society, they have all inspired us. Like you, they are students or recent graduates who are using their knowledge to make the world a better place.
