ELLIS - European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems
On May 23 and 24, Patrizia Toia, Pietro Fiocchi and Maria Manuel Leitão Marques, members of the Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) of the European Parliament, will visit the campus and laboratories of the University of Milan, partner to the Milan Unit of ELLIS, the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems, along with Politecnico, Bocconi and Bicocca.
"We are thrilled to host the visit from STOA, which has expressed interest in furthering research conducted by the ELLIS Unit," says Maria Pia Abbracchio, Vice Rector of the University of Milan in charge of Research and Innovation. "This is an important recognition of frontier research carried out by our scientists, and those of our partner universities, in the applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning, ranging from human health and the environment to natural language analysis and processing."
The ELLIS association brings together the best European scientists and academics in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, with the aim of promoting scientific development in this field in Europe. Set up in November 2021, the Milan Unit aims to make Milan one of the largest European science hubs in four main areas of research: interactive machine learning, which studies the interaction of an algorithm with the environment; neural networks and deep learning; health and computational biology, which applies AI to medicine; the use of AI in artificial vision and in natural language analysis and processing.
STOA delegates will first stop by our historic campus at via Festa del Perdono, on May 23, for a presentation of the ELLIS project and a visit to the Ca' Granda, hosted by Rector Elio Franzini, Vice Rector Maria Pia Abbracchio, representatives from the other ELLIS partners, and regional council member Fabrizio Sala, who is in charge of Education, University, Research, Innovation and Streamlining in Lombardy. Late in the afternoon, they will move to Brera and meet the head of the local botanical gardens Martin Kater.
On May 24, in the morning, Patrizia Toia, Pietro Fiocchi and Maria Manuel Leitão Marques will visit the campus and laboratories of the "Giovanni Degli Antoni" Department of Computer Science at via Celoria 18, together with Silvana Castano, Department head, and will meet researchers of the Milan Unit from the four partner universities. The day will end with a visit to the Unimi Foundation on Viale Ortles, with Luca Solari, Chairman, and Roberto Tiezzi, Director.
