Andrea Zugarini

Short Bio

Since November 2017, I am a PhD student in Smart Computing. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science (Ingegneria Informatica) at University of Florence. In April 2017, I obtained the Master’s Degree with honors in Computer and Automation Engineering at University of Siena defending the thesis called “Information Extraction by Learning Deep Architectures from Constraints”.

Research Interests

I have always been interested in Machine Learning and Optimization problems. In the last few years I mostly worked on Natural Language Processing. The goal of my research project is in Conversational Agents applications, which involve Information Extraction and Language Generation. I am currently working in Text Generation, with particular focus on poem generation. My interests include also, word representations, recurrent neural networks, transfer and few-shot Learning.
