Brief bio
I am currently a research scientist at the Facebook AI Research lab in Menlo Park CA. I previously worked at Google in the Brain team, and before that, I was a post-doctoral fellow in Machine Learning, University of Toronto. I worked in Geoffrey Hinton's lab for two wonderful years.
I did my Ph.D. in Computer Science at New York University in Yann LeCun's group. I am originally from Padova in Italy, where I graduated in Electronics Engineering.

I am interested in Machine Learning, Computer Vision and, more generally, Artificial Intelligence. I have worked on Unsupervised Learning algorithms using both probabilistic graphical models and energy-based models. I also used these algorithms to build hierarchical models, called deep networks. I applied these models to a variety of applications, such as visual object recognition, speech recognition, text document retrieval.

This is my current official website.


NEWS 1   Here is the link to a recent arXiv paper of mine about learning where to look through a sequence of glimpses in order to recognize category of objects.

NEWS 2   Here is the link to the tutorial slides about the deep learning for large scale visual recognition which I presented at CVPR 2014.

NEWS 3   IJCV Special Issue on Deep Learning: G. Hinton, Y. LeCun and I are guest editors of a special issue on Deep Learning for Vision.

NEWS 4   ACM Multimedia 2014: Kai Yu and I are charing the deep learning track.
