I’m a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Bologna, Italy (supervisor: Davide Maltoni) and President of ContinualAI, a non-profit research organization and the largest open community on Continual Learning for AI. Currently, I’m also a Co-founder and Board Member of AI for People and a Research Affiliate at AI Labs. I obtained my PhD at UniBo in early 2019 with a dissertation titled “Continual Learning with Deep Architectures”: a natural continuation of my master’s thesis on bio-inspired deep architectures I started in 2014.
For more than 3 years I have been working as a teaching assistant for the Machine Learning and Computer Architectures courses in the Department of Computer Science of Engineering (DISI). In the past I’ve been a Visiting Research Scientist at Numenta (supervisor: Jeff Hawkins) in 2019, at ENSTA ParisTech (supervisor: David Filliat) in 2018 and at Purdue University (supervisor: Eugenio Culurciello) in 2017. Even before, I was a Machine Learning Software Engineer @ iDL in-line Devices and a Master Student @ UniBo.
My main research interests include open science and ethical AI developments, neuroscience-grounded AI, continual/lifelong learning with deep architectures, multi-task learning, knowledge distillation and transfer, and their real-world applications to embedded systems, robotics and internet-of-things.
