The CIML (Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning) group at the department of Computer Science of the University of Pisa has experience in Artificial Intelligence methodologies, ranging from Computational Intelligence to Machine Learning approaches such as Neural Networks, Deep Learning, Probabilistic Learning, Signal and Image processing, and other Pattern Recognition techniques, with an international scientific leadership in topics for Learning in Structured Domains (sequences, trees and graphs/networks). This knowledge led to the development of new methodologies which have been exploited for the design of successful systems in different interdisciplinary application domains.

Since the 90's the research of the CIML group addresses the development of new Machine Learning methodologies and the analysis of their computational properties. The research is aimed at defining frameworks for the development of intelligent systems and intelligent data analysis tools for learning in structured domains (sequences, trees, graphs) and for the application to innovative interdisciplinary fields.
The design of new learning algorithms includes Neural Networks, Probabilistic models, Reservoir Computing models, Deep Learning approaches, Kernel-based methods, Support Vector Machines, and other Pattern Recognition techniques, with an international scientific leadership in topics for adaptive processing of structured data.
The application fields include Medicine/Health care, BioInformatics, ChemInformatics, Robotics, Intelligent Wireless Sensor Networks, and Signal/Image Processing.The Group has participated in several EU and national funded projects.
The CIML group developed and released software and data sets related to the Research Activities, including innovative ML models for structured data code and datasets for the application areas (related to the original paper publications).
