Short profile: 

Sergio Consoli, Ph.D., is a Junior Researcher within the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC) at the National Research Council (CNR) since September 2013. In particular, he is affiliated with the Semantic Technology Laboratory (STLab) headed by Aldo Gangemi. He works under the supervision of Valentina Presutti on the project "Cloud interoperable platforms for smart-government" (PRISMA) in the context of the study and development of the Semantic Web. In particular his research activity focuses on the design and development of algorithms for knowledge pattern extraction from heterogeneous sources and on definition of methods and metrics for their validation. The goal is to build formalized patterns that emerge from collective knowledge existing on the Web, and to demonstrate that such patterns are effective as means for improving the automatic interpretation and the interaction with large-scale information and data sources (with particular focus on Web content). The developed algorithms will leverage and extend existing techniques of knowledge extraction. The effectiveness of extracted patterns will be evaluated with new evaluation metrics, as well as with the design and performance of user-based experimental studies in the area of social knowledge management for the Public Administration. Sergio's education and scientific experience fall in the areas of Computer Science, Software Engineering, Operational Research, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Knowledge Engineering, Automation and Control Science, Crisis and Disasters Management. He has a M.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from University of Catania (Sicily, 2005) and a Ph.D. in Operational Research from Brunel University (London, 2008), where he was sponsored by the European Union Marie Curie project NET-ACE: Network Theory & Applications to Computing and Engineering. He has published his research in several international journals, edited books, and leading conferences in the field of his work.
