Understanding how intelligence works is largely recognized as one of the most formidable endeavors of science to date with virtually unlimited technological fallout.
By acknowledging the key role played by learning in the development of intelligent systems, we investigate the foundations of learning and learning algorithms
from the viewpoints of computer science, mathematics, and statistics.
Starting from our long standing experience in the design of algorithms for extracting visual information from images, our efforts are directed toward computer vision applications
Leveraging on close collaborations with molecular biologists, clinicians, and radiologists we broadened our interests in the areas of medical image analysis and computational biology
