Machine Learning Genoa Center
MaLGa is a joint research center between computer science and mathematics. Its activities span a wide range of diverse but connected topics, including Computer Vision, Computational Harmonic Analysis, Data Science, Statistical Learning and Optimization.
MaLGa approach to research is highly interdisciplinary. We strive to develop mathematically sound yet practical solutions to be deployed in real life problems. Indeed, beyond pure research, knowledge transfer towards technological and industrial applications is a main objective of the center. Part of our mission are educational activities in machine learning and related topics, including scholarly-oriented teaching and professional training.
From theory to practice: a multidisciplinary effort
MaLGa is primarily a center for fundamental research. A main feature of the research activity at MaLGa is the idea that a fruitful interplay between theoretical and applied questions is the key for long-lasting and impactful contributions. More broadly, this has always been the founding feature of ML studies at the University of Genoa. Our present and past research has always been equally split between foundational work in ML theory, and applied projects, working closely with partners such as hospitals or industries to develop vertical solutions.
MaLGa, the Machine Learning Genoa Center, aims at developing a new generation of theoretically sound intelligent systems to be applied in science, engineering and technology. The center is hosted at Università di Genova and it is organized in four units.
MaLGa carries out its research thanks to several grants from public and private organizations.
Over the years, MaLGa scholars have published several hundreds scientific papers in internationally renowned journals and conferences.
The spectrum of competences, which range from very abstract to concretely applied, is the feature that identifies MaLGa as a bridge between Academia and Industry, and thus shapes its many educational activities as a combination of scholarly-oriented teaching and professional training.
MaLGa offers schools and courses on several machine learning-related topics, both at postgraduate level and for professional training. Also, MaLGa members teach graduate and undergraduate courses for the Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Design degrees, among others.
