You are here

Dino Pedreschi is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Pisa, and a pioneering scientist in mobility data mining, social network mining and privacy-preserving data mining. He co-leads with Fosca Giannotti the Pisa KDD Lab - Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Laboratory, a joint research initiative of the University of Pisa and the Information Science and Technology Institute of the Italian National Research Council, one of the earliest research lab centered on data mining. His research focus is on big data analytics and mining and their impact on society. He is a founder of the Business Informatics MSc program at Univ. Pisa, a course targeted at the education of interdisciplinary data scientists. Dino has been a visiting scientist at Barabasi Lab (Center for Complex Network Research) of Northeastern University, Boston (2009-2010), and earlier at the University of Texas at Austin (1989-90), at CWI Amsterdam (1993) and at UCLA (1995). In 2009, Dino received a Google Research Award for his research on privacy-preserving data mining.

A short interview (in italian) about Watch Dogs and the problems related to Big Data and Data Mining.

A talk at the TEDxRoncade event.

Abbiamo imparato che la biodiversità è cruciale per la salute degli ecosistemi naturali e per l’equilibrio – potremmo dire il benessere – delle specie animali e vegetali che li popolano.

Siamo tutti pollicini digitali, seminiamo le briciole (digitali) dietro di noi. I nostri desideri, opinioni, stili di vita, movimenti, relazioni sociali lasciano traccia attraverso il web, gli smartphone, il bancomat.

Big data er ikke noget, der ligger på bunden af havet og bare skal fiskes op.

I den teknologi, vi hele tiden har på os, sidder små sendere, der registrerer, hvor vi bevæger os. GPS i biler og mobiltelefoner bruger vi til at finde vej, købe billetter i offentlig transport og talrige andre tjenester.

Dino Pedreschi gives a keynote webinar on "The future of Big Data" invited by the European Commision - Digital Agenda for Europe - on their Futurium Platform.

A talk at the FutureICT Workshop.
