Brain-Inspired Computing Workshop 2021

All interested PhD students are encouraged to enroll for free to the Brain-Inspired Computing Workshop 2021, held in Modena on October 7th and 8th 2021.
The workshop, now at its second edition after the well-received premiere in 2019, is based on invited contributions and aims at exploring different aspects of neuromorphic computing: from biologically realistic models for computation to synaptic and neuromorphic electronics to drive the latest generation of artificial neural networks. The main objective of this highly interdisciplinary initiative is to bring together different communities (e.g., electronic engineers, computer scientists, neuroscientists) and explore together areas of research apparently distant from one another such as experimental and computational neuroscience, electronics, and informatics maintaining a common thread.

CI-LAM Summer School 2021

Dal 12 luglio al 6 agosto è organizzata la terza edizione della Summer School del programma di cooperazione bilaterale Italia-Cina CI-LAM sui temi dell’Advanced Manufacturing.
Allego la brochure della scuola che si terrà in remoto su piattaforma CISCO WebEx e il Bando per avanzare la propria candidatura.
La Scuola è rivolta a studenti laureandi di Magistrale e di scuole di PhD di area Ingegneria dell’Informazione e Industriale.

PhD Course on Data Analytics

The aim of the course is to introduce students to two important elements of data engineering technology that makes it possible to extract valuable knowledge from “Big Data”, namely distributed data processing using the MapReduce framework, and data analytics of large graphs. In each case, the course will first introduce fundamental theoretical and architectural concepts, and then present technology for using MapReduce and querying large graphs, respectively. For MapReduce, we present examples of algorithms that can be successfully parallelised and thus are able to take advantage of distributed data architectures, and we will suggest practical exercises using the Spark and Hadoop technology stack. Regarding graph analytics, we focus on community detection algorithms as an example, and we will usethe Neo4J graph DBMS along with the Graph Data Science library for practical exercises.

The course will be held online in the ICT class of Microsoft Teams by professor Paolo Missier and Ph.D. Luca Gagliardelli

Elton Domnori
Lecturer, Vice-Dean, Metropolitan Tirana University
My current role: Currently I am employed as Assist. Prof. at the Faculty of Computer Science and IT. Moreover I hold the position of head of the research unit and vice-dean of the faculty. Active member of the UMT incubator and the Albanian startup community.
The PhD school completely changed my career perspective as it opened a new window into the academia. Since my graduation I am working as a university lecturer and without the PhD school this would not have been possible. The PhD study provides the student with several abilities such as: critical thinking, autonomy, self-confidence, time and resource managerial skills, presentation and public speaking skills, and many others. Often, industry does not give the appropriate value to the PhD study as they think this path does not provide technical/hands on skills to the candidate. To my experience, the PhD study enabled me to acquire deep knowledge on a specific research field, but most important, I gained the ability to adapt to any problem and circumstances, and provide steady and long term solution.
I would like to share something that happened before I started the PhD school. At that time I was working for a software house. Once I got accepted to the PhD school I shared the news with my boss and informed him that I was planning to quit. His reaction was “Oh, so for the next three years you will be on holidays!”. At that moment I realized the perception of industry about the PhD study
