:: alessandro antonucci @ idsia ::
I am a senior researcher of the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IDSIA), located in Lugano, Switzerland. In particular, I am a member of the Imprecise Probability Group. I am also teach Computational Mathematics at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI). My research interests focus on probability theory, statistics, and data mining. More specifically on theoretical investigations and applications of the theory of imprecise probability.
Most of my work is related to probabilistic graphical models: mainly Bayesian networks and their extensions to imprecise probability, which are called credal networks. I am especially interested in the application of these models to classification (this including the multilabel case) and, mostly, the development of knowledge-based decision support systems. Recently, I began to apply these models also to computer vision. At the present moment, I am involved in a research project granted by Armasuisse for the development of knowledge-based systems for military decision making based on credal networks.
Some further information about myself.
- Lecturer of Computational Mathematics at DTI-SUPSI.
- At-large member (former Treasurer and Executive Editor) of the SIPTA society.
- Program Committee member of (among others) ISIPTA (since 2009), UAI (since 2010), IJCAI, AAAI.
- I gave lectures on credal networks for the SIPTA Schools (since 2010), and the IJCAI and AAAI tutorial forums.
