Genoa raises the bet on AI: a new agreement between the Italian Institute of Technology and the University of Genoa to become an increasingly leading player in Italy and Europe.
The news is still fresh that Genoa is one of the 30 nodes of Ellis, the European company of artificial intelligence and machine learning, including centers such as Cambridge, ETH Zurich, Oxford, and the Max Planck Institute. Now the Italian Institute of Technology and the University of Genoa are relaunching with a new agreement, a joint initiative on machine learning and artificial intelligence aimed at consolidating and expanding the activities already present with the aim of becoming the incubator of new research projects, training and technology transfer. The new agreement will facilitate exchanges and synergies between the two institutions. The researchers involved in the initiative are among the world leaders in AI with activities ranging from theoretical foundations and algorithms, to applications of machine learning in areas such as robotics, neuroscience and cognitive sciences, and healthcare and AI. The new agreement has the stated objective of making Genoa one of the AI hubs in Italy and Europe.
