Simone Bonechi

Short Bio

Simone Bonechi graduated in Computer Science at the Department of Information Engineering and Mathematical Sciences of the University of Siena (2014) where he then obtained his Ph.D. In 2018 he spent a period as a visiting Ph.D. at the University of Copenhagen (2018). After two years of PostDoc, first at the University of Tuscia, and then at the University of Pisa, he is now a researcher at the Department of Social, Political, and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Siena. His research activity is focused on Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence, with particular reference to computer vision, image processing, and image generation. He is the author of over 25 publications in international journals and conference proceedings. He also carries out editorial activities as Associated Editor for the journal Neurocomputing and he is Guest Editor for the Special Issue “Mathematical Modelling and Machine Learning Methods for Bioinformatics and Data Science Applications II” for the journal Mathematics.

Research Interests

Starting from my master’s thesis, I have been involved in many projects (in collaboration with local industries) related to image processing, for the automatic analysis/interpretation of biomedical images, and for an identity document (like id cards or driving licenses) recognition.
My current research is mainly focused on Machine Learning and Computer Vision, with a particular focus on semantic image segmentation using convolutional neural networks, and on text localization and recognition with deep networks.
