Welcome, AI Astronaut!
Welcome to my Corner of the Universe!
I’m a 30 years old
University of Pisa, Italy
, a non-profit research organization and the largest open community on
Continual Learning for AI
. Currently, I’m also a
AI for People
, Director of the
and a proud member of the
European Lab for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS)
. In Pisa, I work within the
Pervasive AI Lab
Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning Group
, which is also part of the and the
Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe (CLAIRE)
Previously, I was a Post-Doc @ University of Bologna (with:
) where I also obtained my PhD in early 2019 with a dissertation titled
“Continual Learning with Deep Architectures”
(on a topic I’ve been working on for more than 7 years now) which was recognized as one of the top-5 AI dissertation of 2019 by the
Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence
. In the past I’ve been a
Visiting Research Scientist
in 2020, at
) in 2019, at
) in 2018 and at
) in 2017. Even before, I was a Machine Learning Software Engineer @
iDL in-line Devices
and a Master Student @ UniBo.
My main research interest and passion is about
in all its facets. In particular, I love to study
under four main lights: D
eep Learning, Distributed Learning
, all within a
developmental framework. My work has been
featured by Venture Beat
. Notable research milestones include: 1) the
1st PhD dissertation on Deep Continual Learning
; 2) the organization of the
1st Continual Learning in Computer Vision workshop at CVPR 2020
, 3) the release of
Avalanche: the reference open-source library for Continual Learning
and 4) the authorship of the
1st official open-access course on Continual Learning
Check out our recent project:
Avalanche-RL: Extending Avalanche for Continual Reinforcement Learning
I'm the program chair of the
1st AI for People Conference
