Design and analysis of machine learning algorithms


Francesco Orabona received his PhD in University of Genoa. He was a Senior Research Scientist at Yahoo Research NY. Previously, he was at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago, the University of Milan, and the IDIAP Research Institute. 


Francesco Orabona focuses on a very simple but often ignored topic: How to make machine learning algorithms really automatic? How to remove the constant need for a human (PhD student?) to hand tune all the knobs of an algorithm till it finally works?
