The University of Milan Bocconi, State, Bicocca and the Polytechnic have joined forces to create a pole of excellence for research and training in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The four universities have become one of the Ellis Units, the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems.
Born in 2018, Ellis is the association that brings together European scientists and academics of artificial intelligence to promote scientific development on the topic in Europe.
The new Unit of Ellis will have the mission to make Milan one of the major European scientific poles in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning. A blengage that was also indicated to us by the president of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, Piero Poccianti, in our last interview.
Artificial intelligence for four in Milan
Four research guidelines will be available: interactive machine learning, which studies the interaction of an algorithm with the environment; neuronal networks and deep learning; computational health and biology, which applies artificial intelligence
Four of the proposed scientific coordinators of the Unit, one for each University, will also be responsible for the rotational unit: Nicolò Cesa-Bianchi (Ordinary Professor of Computer Science, State University of Milan, who will guide
The initiative was presented to the City of Milan, together with the mayor Giuseppe Sala, by the rector of Bocconi, Gianmario Verona, by the vicar prorector of the State, Maria Pia Abbrachchio, by the
For Gianmario Verona della Bocconi ›Multidisciplinary approach and collaboration between the Milanese universities is fundamental for the development of knowledge in this area and to give Milan a leading role at European level ›
Maria Pia Abbrachchio della Statale recalls that “As a generalist university that ranges from scientific-technological and biomedical areas to socio-economic, legal and humanistic areas, the State has already found itself in a privileged position to accept the challenge of the Starting from the foundation in 2019 of the Joint Lab for Embodied Artificial Intelligence at Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi, and continuing in 2021 with the opening, together with two Lombard universities, of the first degree course in And Ferruccio remains closed that Â Technological development is anything but neutral: it is a complex process, as well represented by the four research lines that we have decided to trace: interaction with the environment; neuronal networks and deep learn It should therefore be anticipated, managed and shared.
