Davide Bacciu is Associate Professor at the Computer Science Department, University of Pisa.
Previously, he was a research associate at the Advanced Robotics Technology and System Laboratory (ARTS Lab), Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna Pisa (2004-2005), and at the Neural Computation Research Group, LJMU (2007-2008). In 2012 he visited the Cognitive Robotic Systems laboratory, Orebro Universitet.
His current research interests include machine learning for structured data, Bayesian learning, deep learning and its intersection with generative approaches, reservoir computing, distributed and embedded learning systems. Since 2005, he has been involved as leading researcher or principal investigator in a number of national, international and industrial research projects. He has received the 2009 E.R. Caianiello Award for the best Italian Ph.D. thesis on neural networks and was nominated for the AI*IA Marco Cadoli Ph.D. award in 2009. He is the coordinator of the H2020 TEACHING project as well as of Italian national and industrial projects.
Davide serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems and as an Academic Editor for PLOS ONE. He is an IEEE Senior Member, a member of the IEEE CIS Neural Network Technical Committee and the chair of the IEEE task force on learning for structured data. He has been in the board of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence since 2015 and he has been the Secretary of the association since 2017.
