Vittorio Murino is full professor
@ University of Verona
, Dept. of Computer Science, Verona, Italy,
and affiliated researcher
of the Pattern Analysis & Computer Vision (PAVIS)
at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), where he has been the former
(and first) director
(Principal Investigator) from 2009 to 2019 (https://pavis.iit.it/
). From 2019 to 2021, he joined the Huawei Ireland Research Centre, Huawei Technologies (Ireland) Co. Ltd.,
in Dublin, as Senior Video Intelligence Expert
Main expertise on computer vision and pattern recognition, machine learning, image and signal processing, and neuroimaging (data analysis). His main research focus lies now on deep learning, specifically on domain adaptation and generalization, multi-modal deep learning models, learning with privileged information, zero/one/few-shot learning and imbalance data in general, and disentangling representation models. Related applications involve classification and recognition in general, in supervised and unsupervised scenarios, including (fine-grained) activity recognition.
He has a particular interest in multimodal social signal processing approaches for the analysis of human behavior, with main applications related to surveillance and security, human-human and human-machine interaction, ambient intelligence, and retailing. Also major experience in standard industrial applicative domains such as visual inspection and automation.
Concerning the biomedical area, Prof. Murino's main work and interest lie in neuroimaging data analysis, namely Magnetic Resonance Imaging and, in particular, in the study of neural correlates responsible of (social) behavior, with applications in behavioral neurological pathologies (e.g., schizophrenia, autism, etc.) and brain function understanding in general. We deal with these problems using a connectomics approach, specifically by integrating structural and functional connectomics data/information.
He has former experience in underwater vision (acoustical and optical), data fusion and sensory integration with applications on (underwater) object detection and recognition, object and scene reconstruction.
He is author/co-author of more than 400 papers in computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning, image processing, and underwater acoustic imaging published in refereed international scientific journals or presented at the major conferences.
