The Florence Center for Data Science hosts a dissemination feature consisting in brief interviews with our D2 Seminar speakers. We are asking few questions to the experts to explain what their research is about, this format can be seen as an extended version of the Q&A session.

Our goal is to promote a public understanding of science and to reach the readers who may be interested in knowing more about the different fields in which data are involved.


 

Kosuke Imai, professor in the Department of Government and the Department of Statistics at Harvard University, was our guest at the Special Guest Seminar Series presenting his talk on “Experimental Evaluation of Causal Machine Learning”.
Alessio Brini, Postdoctoral Associate at the Pratt School of Engineering of Duke University, was our guest at the D2 Seminar Series. He presented his talk on “Reinforcement Learning Policy Recommendation for Interbank Network Stability”

Raffaele Guetto professor at the Department of Statistics, Computer Science, Applications “G. Parenti” at the University of Florence, was invited as a speaker to our 8h D2 Seminar. He presented his work on “Italy’s lowest-low fertility in times of uncertainty”.
Andrea Marino, researcher at the Department of Statistics, Computer Science, Applications “G. Parenti” at University of Florence, was our guest to the D2 seminar presenting his study entitled: “Approximating the Neighborhood Function of (Temporal) Graphs”.
Luigi Brugnano was our guest to the Seventh seminar D2 series, he’s a professor of Numerical Analysis at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science “Ulisse Dini” at the University of Florence. Before he presented his research, he dedicated his seminar to Francesca Romana Nardi, who was a dear colleague and friend, part of our Steering group as deputy director, and who passed away last October.
Chiara Marzi, a postdoctoral research fellow of the Institute of Applied Physics “Nello Carrara” – National Research Council CNR. She talked about the topic of Artificial Intelligence in Neuroimaging, explaining how applying AI techniques to life sciences data can enhance the accuracy in pinpointing biomarkers or biological markers, which are the measurable indicators for medical states.
Leonardo Bargigli, professor at at the Department of Statistics, Computer Science, Applications “G. Parenti” at University of Florence presented a study he recently conducted with G. Cifarelli, about Endogenous and Exogenous Volatility in the Foreign Exchange Market.
