Andrea Santilli

I am a Computer Scientist with a strong focus on Artificial Intelligence. I’m currently an adjunct professor in Physical Computing 2 and Physical Computing 1 at Quasar Institute for Advanced Design and an adjunct lecturer in Natural Language Processing at the master in Data Science at the University of Roma Tor Vergata.

I pursued my B.Sc and M.Sc in Computer Science from the University of Roma Tor Vergata with both scores 110/110 cum laude, working and publishing with the Artificial Intelligence Research Group at Tor Vergata (ART). I also attended the School of Artificial Intelligence at Pi School in Rome, an intensive AI and entrepreneurship training program to become an AI expert.

My interests lie in deep neural networks and natural language processing. In particular, I’m interested in researching topics like memory-augmented neural networks, continual learning and one-shot learning. Presently, I am working on syntax in deep neural network models and in BERT-based NLP models. Previously I worked on microcontrollers for the Internet of Things. In my free time, I try to contribute to open source libraries.
