"He who cannot be a good follower, cannot be a good leader."

Aristotle

The best way to do something, is start doing it.

Hi, I am Dimitris Gkikas and this is my space! I am a professional informatics engineer keen on digital analytics, a nature lover and a sportsman. Since I was a child I have been focusing on technology, marine life and sports. I admire music, photography and paint works. I love nature and I am explicitly interested in animal welfare.

Over the last years I have been focusing on artificial intelligence, e-business strategy, machine learning, data mining, data analysis, SEO, organics results, web design, user experience, and social media performance in the private and academic sector.

Education

Doctor of Philosophy - PhD Candidate in Artificial Intelligence and Marketing,
Department of Business Administration of Food and Agricultural Enterprises, School of Economics and Business, Department of Business Administration of Food and Agricultural Enterprises, University of Patras. My passion for technology led me start my PhD research in areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, digital marketing, and online consumer behaviour.

Master of Science - MSc in e-Business and Digital Marketing, Department of Science and Technology, School of Science and Technology, International Hellenic University. My second Master's degree in E-Business and Digital Marketing came from my passion for business development and marketing strategy. Following and analyzing any upcoming digital marketing trends combining factors which affect organic and paid searches in any kind of SERP's.

Master of Science - MSc in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence and Agents), School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, University of Essex. My first Master's degree in Computer Science helped me specialise in Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining where I was able to witness how algorithms performed providing optimal solutions through a series of smart applications. Data management, classification, clustering, optimization and association got my attention.

Bachelor of Science - BSc in Informatics Engineering
, Department of Informatics and Computer Engineering, School of Engineering, Technology Institute of Athens (University of West Attica). My Bachelor studies focused on informatics engineering and information systems design. Programming languages, data bases, data structures, networks, operating systems, information systems design, and artificial intelligence were some of the main principles.

My Research Areas of Interest

Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the study that includes computational procedures to perform actions that human beings do and require a certain amount of intelligence. Communication and learning represent the ways that humans show their intelligence. Both ways require certain mental skills like synthesis, analysis, decision making, judgment, organizing, reasoning, hypothesis, interpretation etc. Artificial intelligence (AI) involves knowledge representation, search, perception and inference. To generate results, artificial intelligence (AI) must define and read the data in forms that will allow representation and processing. The way to succeed that is search and inference. Referring to search there must sophisticated search algorithms to find the optimal solutions. Then inferences are drawn for each situation. The way through artificial intelligence (AI) leads to decision making start from data selection process, continues pre-processing data, then data transformation, data mining plays a key role to entire process, finally results evaluation will lead to decision making.
