Fabrizio Smeraldi, Ph.D.
I am Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Artificial Intelligence in the Risk and Information Management (RIM) group of the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) of Queen Mary, University of London. I am Deputy Director of Graduate Studies (Research), and also teach for the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences (SBCS).
Since 2018, I am a Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute and a co-founder of Mebomine, a digital healthcare startup that supports the rapid development of new therapies by using AI to capture and interpret online patient voices.
I joined Queen Mary in September 2002; before that I was associate professor (Universitetslektor) in the School of Information Science, Computer and Electrical Engineering (IDE) of the University of Halmstad, Sweden.
I earned my Ph.D. in the year 2000 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL/LCN). My thesis on "Attention-driven pattern recognition" was awarded the Fritz Kutter prize by the other Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH Zurich. I graduated in Physics from the University of Genova in 1996, with a thesis on quantum computation and cryptography.
I am mainly interested in
Recent work includes
I worked extensively on attention driven pattern recognition inspired by the human saccadic system, the Gabor decomposition and Support Vector Machines (SVMs). An application to Face Authentication lead to a commercially licensed biometric system. I co-chaired the Third International Conference on Audio- and Video- Based Biometric Person Authentication (AVBPA 2001).
