Catania, 19th September 2017
For the second year in a row, we played our part at the International Conference on Machine learning, Optimization, and big Data (MOD), which this time took place in Volterra, Tuscany (Italy) from 14th to 17th September 2017.
Our CEO, Giovanni Giuffrida - who in addition to being one of Neodata’s founders is Professor of Information Technology at the University of Catania - is one of the organizers and program chairs of the event.
There’s no better way to describe what it is that the words spoken by the organizers, as you read on the conference official website.
“MOD is a premier forum for presenting and discussing current research in machine learning, optimization and big data. It has established itself as a premier interdisciplinary conference in machine learning, computational optimization, knowledge discovery and data science.
It provides an international forum for presentation of original multidisciplinary research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative and practical development experiences, and it consists of four days of conference sessions”.
Researchers and academics from all over the world submit their papers, focusing on machine learning- and big data mining and analytics-related matters. The Program Committee composed by university professors joining from popular universities worldwide, including Harvard, the Imperial College in London, and the University of Florida, review submissions on the basis of technical quality, significance, multidisciplinary, relevance to scope of the conference, originality and clarity.
The selected papers are then discussed at the conference and later published in a book sponsored by Springer on a yearly basis
Giovanni Giuffrida is also one of the editors of the publication.
A prominent role this year was given to emerging topics of high importance such as data quality, advanced deep learning, quantum discrete optimization, learning representations, big data mining and analytics, heterogeneous data integration and mining, autonomous decision and adaptive control, just to name a few.
"As a matter of fact, academics meet here to share the findings that will contribute to change our future" says Giovanni Giuffrida, Neodata's CEO.
“Our commitment to Research is pivotal to feeding innovation at Neodata. Leveraging state-of-the-art technologies is not enough to us: being at the forefront of innovation means anticipating future advancements and actively taking part in setting new goals and best practices in the disciplines of Data Science.
We're proud of having access to the experience and the intuitions of some of the best brains on earth as innovation has no borders or nationality.”
