Domain of Research: Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Data Analysis
Nicoletta Noceti received the Laurea cum laude (2006) and the PhD in Computer Science (2010) from the University of Genova. In 2008, she visited the IDIAP Institute (Switzerland). Since 01/2018 she is assistant professor at DIBRIS, University of Genova. Previously, she has been research associate at DIBRIS and DISI, University of Genova Her research activity is mainly focused on the design and development of visual computational models that combine Computer Vision and Machine Learning for the general goal of scene understanding from images or videos, with particular attention to motion information. The reference fields of her work include artificial vision modelling and image processing, within the application areas of Human-Machine Interaction and Natural User Interfaces, video-surveillance and activity monitoring. Both theoretical and practical aspects are key elements of her research. She authored more than 50 publications, and she participated to various national and international research projects (e.g. EU projects SAFEPOST and Healh-e-Child), and technology transfer and development projects with SMEs and large companies. She collaborates with universities, research institutes and hospitals. She recently organised the workshop “Vision and the development of social cognition” held in conjunction with the Sixth Joint IEEE International Conference on Developmental Learning and Epigenetic Robotics (ICDL-EPIROB 2016, Cergy-Pontoise, September 19th) and the One-Day BMVA Meeting “Vision for interaction: from humans to robots” (London, October 19th). She is currently guest editor of the special issue “A sense of interaction in humans and robots: from visual perception to social cognition” for the IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems.
