Short bio

Andrea Tettamanzi is a full professor at the Nice Sophia Antipolis University (member of the Université Côte d'Azur), where his research affiliation is with the I3S Laboratory and his teaching affiliation is with the Département Informatique. He is head of the SPARKS research team and a member of the Wimmics joint research project between the I3S Laboratory and Inria. His major research interests are: evolutionary algorithms, fuzzy logic, and soft computing (or computational intelligence) in general; knowledge representation and extraction; the Semantic Web; and the logical foundations of cognitive agents.


Research topic | Towards an Evolutionary Epistemology of Ontology Learning

I am developing symbolic learning methods based on evolutionary computation to overcome the knowledge acquisition bottleneck in knowledge base construction and enrichment. This project, straddling machine learning and knowledge representation and reasoning, combines symbolic aspects of AI with easily parallelizable computational methods.
