Nice to meet you. I am Fis!
You can pronounce it as "fees" or whatever way suits you best...
Seriously, no worries. 😁
And, of course, you can always go for my name, Felipe.
In the last 3.5 years, I've been diving deep into the world of Coding, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Natural Language Processing (NLP).
After a lot of study and research, I finally obtained my Master's degree in Information Science in November 2022.
In the meantime, I was incredibly fortunate to become part of the PKM Community, getting to interact deeply for 2+ years with apps such as Roam Research, Notion, Obsidian, and now Tana.
This brought me to the unique intersection of applying AI and NLP to the world of notetaking apps and PKM.
I was able to unite all of these interests in my Master's Thesis:
“On Automatic Generation of Knowledge Connections”.
In my Thesis, I applied NLP techniques such as Semantic Similarity, Entity (Concept) Recognition, and Knowledge Graphs to create an interconnected highlights collection using Readwise and Obsidian.
This process has led me to a pretty special position.
As of 2023, I am applying concepts from Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence to Notetaking and Knowledge Management.
This intersection is a fit made in heaven for the new-kid-on-the-block Tana.
I consider my teachings and knowledge to be tool-agnostic, but I'm migrating my professional efforts to empower people using Tana.
Tana has some extraordinarily powerful functionalities, which will become even more astounding when AI comes into play. And I’ll be there to bridge this gap!
For now, that's all regarding my professional life. If you care to learn about some of my personal interests, keep reading!
Among my favorite things in the world are:
Books, Sports, Learning, Notetaking apps, Board Games, Coffee, Primal Movements, Self-Improvement, and my Girlfriend, Maria Clara!
I'm a highly ambitious Brazilian guy with wild dreams and a strong faith in humanity.
Curiosity is my fuel.
I'm deeply inspired to understand the Universe we live in, including the most important part of the Universe:
Self-knowledge is the greatest available form of knowledge. Don't take my word for it. Lend an ear to one of the greatest Philosophers to ever live:
“To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.” – Socrates
I am on a self-knowledge journey, and I invite you to join this movement.
Right now, the world needs you to look inside.
You and each and every one of us.
It's by slowing down and learning more about ourselves that Humanity will amount to its greatest progress in the 21st century.
Because when you stop to ponder about life and reality, it's impossible NOT to come to the realization that we are all together in this journey.
We are all part of a huge interconnected living system which is Planet Earth.
It's through collaboration and LOVE that we will raise Humanity to the next level of awareness.
Join me in this movement and spread the word.
See you around
I'm always looking to grow my network, as I love to connect with bright and like-minded people.
