Description

The current research of the Group addresses the development of new Machine Learning methodologies and the analysis of their computational properties. The research is aimed at defining frameworks for the development of intelligent systems and intelligent data analysis tools for learning in structured domains (sequences, trees, graphs) and for the application to innovative interdisciplinary fields.

The design of learning algorithms includes Neural Networks, Probabilistic models, Reservoir Computing models, Deep Learning approaches, Kernel-based methods, Support Vector Machines, Adaptive Processing of Structured Data, and other Pattern Recognition techniques.

The application fields include BioInformatics, ChemInformatics, Robotics, Intelligent Wireless Sensor Networks, and Signal/Image Processing. This is particularly important because of the fast growth of information sources due to the explosion in the use of Internet and Sensor Networks and of the new IT capabilities that results from the exploitation and integration of different intelligent approaches.

The Group has participated in many EU and Italian funded projects.
