        Alessandra Cervone

        PhD student

        While her first MSc was in Linguistics, during her internship in Edinburgh Alessandra had the crazy idea to write a dissertation that connected Automatic Speech Recognition and Natural Language Understanding, because she found it interesting. Naturally this required a tremendous amount of learning, but she had so much fun, she went back to Edinburgh to do a MSc in Speech and Language Processing. Apparently she still hasn’t had enough of research, because after one year in the industry in dialog development, she left her job to pursue a PhD in Computer Science; and she plans to have a whale of a time playing with dialogues and virtual agents.
        In her spare time, you can spot Alessandra in small theatres either impersonating characters on stage or writing them down for a play.

                Steve Azzolin

                Bachelor Student

                Steve Azzolin is a bachelor's student in Computer Science at the University of Trento. He started with great interest in web development, but when he read an introductory book to Data Analytics he changed his goals. He started to study Machine Learning and to play with online challenges such as Kaggle.

                Being interested in a Ph.D., he joined the SISLab group to see what does doing research means.

                    Visiting PhD Student

                    I am currently a PhD Student at the Technische Hochschule Nuernberg cooperating with the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen (FAU). If you do not come from Germany it might confusing to have two alme matres but the university system here has 4 tiers. If you’re at one of the lower two tiers you have to work together with a university that belongs to the top two tiers.

                    I am interested in all kinds of speech and specifically speech recogniton related topics. My PhD project is about monitoring of pathological speech with a special regard to privacy. If you think you have something interesting or want to cooperate on a project just let me know. The topics I am most interested in random order are:

                    • speech recognition
                    • pathological speech
                    • maschine learning
                    • deep learning
                    • software engineering for ML/DL applications

                      Master Student

                      I'm studying for a Master degree in Computer Science at the University of Trento. I've always found intriguing to solve challenges: that, more than anything else, made me extremely eager to learn. In 2016, during my Bachelor degree, I started working, because my philosophy is "the more you have to do, the more you do". And now, after having collected enough experience from my own projects and the different jobs done during these years, I’m currently working on my own as a freelance. I’ve decided to continue my studies because several innovative aspects of computer science are rarely integrated in the type of works that I’m used to do, and since it’s an always-evolving subject, I wanted to immerse myself in these new technologies.

                          I still remember the day my primary school teacher told my mother: “Your son will never be good at school”.
                          I finished high school at the top of my class and went on to University to study CS. Instead of looking for a job, after my Bachelors I went on for a MSc in data science, where I attended Language Understanding Systems, the most difficult course I had ever taken.
                          Of course, I decided to write my dissertation on it and to do an internship in the lab that developed such systems. As you might have guessed, I love challenges.
