Machine Learning is a set of methods and techniques for constructing software systems automatically by analyzing only examples of the desired behaviour.
You do not write a program. You only provide examples of what you want. The program will be synthesized automatically.
In our lab we focus on engineering applications: have a look to our publications to know more about specific research topics.

The lab

The Machine Learning Lab is directed by prof. Alberto Bartoli, assisted by prof. Eric Medvet, and hosts PostDocs, PhD students and LM, LT students: check the opportunities.
The lab is located at Department of Engineering and Architecture (DIA)University of Trieste (room 1259, 2nd floor, building C3). We are on Twitter and Google+.
