Alberto Testoni

I am a 3rd year Ph.D. student at the ICT International Doctoral School (University of Trento), working under the supervision of Raffaella Bernardi. I obtained an M.Sc. in Cognitive Science from CIMeC-UniTN (Center for Mind/Brain Sciences) and I hold a B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Bologna. My work lies at the intersection between different fields, such as Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision and Cognitive Science; in particular, my research focuses on training Deep Neural Networks from multi-modal data (language, vision and sound). Ex Research Scientist Intern at Amazon Alexa AI in Berlin (Natural Language Understanding). Check out my full list of publications and feel free to get in touch!
