The Google Developer Experts Program recognizes individuals who are experts and thought leaders in one or more Google technologies. These professionals actively contribute to and support the developer and startup ecosystems around the world, through speaking at events, writing technical content, providing training and open source contributions, etc.

CI&T is proud to announce that our very own, Gabriel Moreira, Lead Data Scientist, has joined this select group of experts. Currently, there are only 90 GDEs in Machine Learning around the world. Moreira is 1 of only 5 in Latin America. This is no easy feat--as the process requires GDEs to prove their expertise and contributions to the industry. His speaking highlights include QCon, PAPIs LATAM, GDG Data Fest and The Developers Conference just to name a few. His contributions to the community comprise of insightful articles and blog posts on Medium, in-depth research papers with the most recent about “Contextual Hybrid Session-based News Recommendation with Recurrent Neural Networks”, sharing open-source code, and all this on top of also mentoring in Google's organized Design Sprints.

“I see it as a recognition for the efforts we have made in the last years towards democratizing Machine Learning / AI technologies as well as creating a bridge between the AI research and industry, helping to find practical ways to generate business impact with AI innovations for our clients and society,” says Moreira on what this distinction means to him.

Along with having to satisfy the eligibility criteria, individuals must first be nominated by a current Google Developer Expert and only then does the application process start. Following this are the eligibility check, community interviews, and product interview.

With Moreira’s induction into the Experts Program, it not only adds to the strength and competence of our CI&T team to provide the best solutions to our clients, but it also allows access to a variety of exclusive benefits that will help elevate our services.

GDEs have early access to Google’s Machine Learning tools and visibility into their roadmap, improving our ability to prepare ourselves in advising our clients once it hits the market.

CI&T is proud of Gabriel and his achievements and appreciate the hard work he continues to provide clients and the developer and startup communities.
