Dario Zanca

Short Bio

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Smart Computing at University of Florence and University of Siena, since November 2015.

I received a Master’s Degree in Mathematics from the University of Palermo (Italy) in July 2015.

Research Interests

My current research interest is in the area of computer vision.

Under the advice of Marco Gori, I work on machine learning algorithms and computational modeling of visual attention.


A differential model of visual attention scanpath is applied to the task of saliency prediction both in static and dynamic scenes.

Collection of dataset of visual attention scanpaths and saliency maps. Standardized metrics for scanpath and salency map similarity.

An introduction to some machine learning tools within the most common development environments.
