Augmenting Human Intelligence: from deep learning to generative AI

Emanuele Frontoni, University of Macerata, Italy.

In this speech, Emanuele Frontoni will discuss the latest developments in augmenting human intelligence through the use of deep learning and generative AI. The talk will explore how these technologies are transforming various industries and enabling humans to perform tasks that were previously impossible. Several projects implemented in the VRAI Lab will be presented as examples of this evolution. The speaker will delve into the applications of these technologies, such as image analysis, natural language processing, and predictive modeling. A special section will be dedicated to the ITrustAI researches on deep learning on middle-aged parchments. He will also address the ethical considerations surrounding the use of AI and the need for responsible development and deployment of these technologies.

Emanuele Frontoni is a Full Professor of Computer Science at the University of Macerata and the Co-Director of the VRAI Vision Robotics & Artificial Intelligence Lab.

His research interests include computer vision and artificial intelligence with applications in robotics, video analysis, human behavior analysis, extended reality, and digital humanities.

He is the author of over 230 international articles and collaborates with numerous national and international companies in technology transfer and innovation activities.

He has been Program Chair or General Chair of various international conferences and summer schools (e.g. IEEE / ASME MESA Mechatronic Embedded System & Applications 2016 and 2017, IEEE ECMR European Conference on Mobile Robotics 2017, BigDat 2020, DeepLearn 2021) and co-organizer of many international workshops (eg DeepRetail @ ICPR 2020, D2CH @ CVPR 2021, AI4DH @ ICIAP 2022).

He is also involved in several national and international technology transfer projects in the fields of AI, Deep Learning, data interoperability, cloud-based technologies, and big multimedia data analysis, extended reality and digital humanities.

He is a member of the European Association for Artificial Intelligence, the European AI Alliance, and the International Association for Pattern Recognition. He served as expert for the EU Commission in the AI H2020 and Horizon Europe Calls and he is currently co-speaker of the European IPEI CIS (Important Project of Common European Interest – Cloud Infrastructure and Services) for the AI services of the next generation of European cloud – edge services.
