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

I am a fan of human intelligence, its ability to develop situated knowledge, generalize and adapt fast to new diverse environments. It proceeds through perception, interaction and reasoning. I am delighted to put my efforts into discovering and formalizing the functional principles that underlie these processes.

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

Projects

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

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

:: MACHINE LEARNING MANUAL
An introduction to some machine learning tools within the most common development environments.

:: COARSE-TO-FINE Q-LEARNING
A Reinforcement Learning approach for object localisation of very high resolution images.
