Vittorio Mazzia

I’m a Ph.D. student in Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering working with two Interdepartmental Centres PIC4SeR  and SmartData. I received a master’s degree in Mechatronics Engineering from the Politecnico di Torino, presenting a thesis entitled “Use of deep learning for automatic low cost detection of cracks in tunnels,” developed in collaboration with the California State University. My current research interests involve deep learning applied to different tasks of computer vision, autonomous navigation for service robotics and reinforcement learning. Moreover, making use of neural compute devices (like Jetson Xavier, Jetson Nano, Movidius Neural Stick) for hardware acceleration, I’m currently working on machine learning algorithms and their embedded implementation for AI at the edge. Investigate novel training objectives and training strategies in order to obtain higher level representations with less labeled data and power are my constant priority in each of my project.
