🌿Short Biography

Vincenzo Lomonaco is an Assistant Professor at the University of Pisa, Italy where he teaches the Artificial Intelligence and Continual Learning courses. Currently, He also serves as Co-Founding President and Lab Director at ContinualAI, a non-profit research organization and the largest open community on Continual Learning for AI, Co-founding Board Member at AI for People, and as proud member of the European Lab for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS). In Pisa, he works within the Pervasive AI Lab and the Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning Group, which is also part of the and the Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe (CLAIRE). Vincenzo is a Task Leader of two main European projects and a Principal Investigator of several industrial research contracts with companies such as Meta, Intel, Leonardo s.p.a. and SeaVision s.r.l.​
Previously, he was a Post-Doc @ University of Bologna (with: Davide Maltoni) where he also obtained his PhD in early 2019 with a dissertation titled “Continual Learning with Deep Architectures” (on a topic he’s been working on for more than 7 years now) which was recognized as one of the top-5 AI dissertations of 2019 by the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence.
For more than 5 years he worked as a teaching assistant for the Machine Learning and Computer Architectures courses in the Department of Computer Science of Engineering (DISI) at UniBo. In the past Vincenzo have been a Visiting Research Scientist at AI Labs in 2020, at Numenta (with: Jeff Hawkins, Subutai Ahmad) in 2019, at ENSTA ParisTech (with: David Filliat) in 2018 and at Purdue University (with: Eugenio Culurciello) in 2017. Even before, he was a Machine Learning Software Engineer @ iDL in-line Devices and a Master Student @ UniBo.
His main research interest and passion is about Continual Learning in all its facets. In particular, he loves to study Continual Learning under four main lights: Deep Learning, Distributed Learning and Practical Applications, all within a AI Sustainability developmental framework.
