Matteo Stefanini

PhD Candidate in Artificial Intelligence - TEDx Organizer


University of Modena and Reggio Emilia


Hi there!

Currently I am PhD Candidate in Artificial Intelligence, studying Deep Learning and Computer Vision at AImagelab, UniMoRe. Working to connect Vision and Language under the supervision of Rita Cucchiara and Lorenzo Baraldi.

I aim to couple my passion for learning and my drive to motivate people around me. I believe AI will push genomics and biomedical fields to new universal missions.

I’m also a TEDx Organizer in the biomedical valley of Mirandola (MO). Join us!
