Geochemical fingerprinting of food products and water resources
We study, design, and implement protocols for geochemical fingerprinting based on physical, chemical, and isotopic data. We work with the Department of Physics and Earth Sciences of the University of Ferrara (Italy), the University of Còrdoba (Spain), and the Ayesa Foundation (Sevilla, Spain)
Medical data management and decision support system
In collaboration with the Research Center for the Study of Menopause and Osteoporosis of the University of Ferrara, we are designing and maintaining a data processing center equipped with a innovative decision support system.
Time series classification
We design and study new time series classification methods using symbolic, temporal-logic based knowledge extraction methods. At the moment, we are applying our techniques to many tasks; among them, we work with Siemens Europa, and we are trying to build systems that allow one to predict the need of maintenance of gas turbines.
We are studying novel techniques for images classification and segmentation, based on symbolic, spatial-logic based knowledge extraction techniques. These techniques have shown promising results with satellite/areal data, specifically on the task of land cover classification.
Medical document classification and information extraction
This project, currently at the pre-design level, aims to build a system based on textual artificial intelligence which is able to help a medical doctor to identify, classify, and extract information from publicily available medical research papers. For this project, we collaborate with the Department of Translational Medicine and for Romagna of the University of Ferrara.
Open data for everyone
This project, currently at the pre-design level, has the objective of offering a middle level between the administrative and economical Italian open data sources and the final user. We are realizing this idea in collaboration with the Department of Economics and Management of the University of Ferrara.
