Daniele Caligiore co-coordinates the Computational and Translational Neuroscience Laboratory, an ISTC interdisciplinary research group that uses artificial intelligence to study brain and behavior. The ultimate aim of the laboratory is to find new clinical applications and new therapies for nervous system disorders and neurodegenerative diseases.
He is director and co-founder of the Advanced School in Artificial Intelligence, a post-graduate school supported by ISTC for the study and interdisciplinary application of artificial intelligence.
Daniele received a Master's Degree in Electronic Engineering in 2003 from the University of Catania and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering in 2011 from the University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome. He has been visiting scholar at the Center for Robotics and Neural Systems from the University of Plymouth (UK), the University of Bologna and the University of Southern California.
He has published more than 70 scientific articles in international journals, conference proceedings and book chapters. He has also participated in several international research projects in the field of artificial intelligence, including the projects ROSSI - Emergence of Communication in Robots Through Sensorimotor and Social Interaction, and IM-CLeVeR - Intrinsically Motivated Cumulative Learning Versatile Robots.
He is evaluator expert of research project proposals in the field of artificial intelligence for the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR) and for the European Commission. He is also among the founding members of the ISTC-CNR spin-off AI2Life whose mission is to spread the use of artificial intelligence solutions to promote business growth, social development, and people well-being.
He is the author of the interdisciplinary book "IA istruzioni per l’uso".
