Welcome!

This is the official web site of Siena Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The focus of our research is on machine learning. In the last few years, we’ve been mainly involved in the conception of new theories of learning in structured domains and in their applications to pattern recognition and mining the web. We are also interested […]

[Oct 9th 2019] LabMeeting: Pseudo-Random Numbers Generation – a Reinforcement Learning approach

Luca Pasqualini (DIISM, University of Siena) Oct 9, 2019 – 11:00 AM DIISM, Artificial Intelligence laboratory (room 201), Siena SI Description Pseudo-Random Numbers Generators (PRNGs) are algorithms produced to generate long sequences of statistically uncorrelated numbers, i.e. pseudo-random numbers (PRNs). Those numbers are used in mid-level cryptography and in many software applications and libraries. Test […]
