Machine Learning

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 at the full list of our publications.


The Lab is directed by prof. Alberto Bartoli, assisted by prof. Eric Medvet and prof. Andrea De Lorenzo, and hosts PostDocs, PhD students and LM, LT students: check the opportunities.
