About

 Marcello Ferro was born in Messina, Italy, in 1974. He graduated in electronic engineering with specialization in informatics and microelectronics at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy, in 2001, with the thesis “Design and realization of a software architecture for the management of real-time autonomous agents: OpenAI”. He received the Ph.D. degree in “Automatics, Robotics and Bioengineering” from the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2006, with the thesis “High efficiency real-time sensor and actuator control and data processing: a framework solution for control systems in biomimetic autonomous robots”.
From 2006 to 2009 he was post-doc fellow in bioengineering at the “E. Piaggio” Bioengineering and Robotics Research Center of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Pisa, Italy.
Since 2009 he is with the “Antonio Zampolli” Institute for Computational Linguistics (ILC) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Pisa, Italy, where he is involved in the analysis and modeling of linguistic tasks related to word reading, word segmentation from speech and noun-noun compound interpretation.
 His scientific areas of interest include artificial intelligence for biomimetic robotics, computational neurosciences, artificial neural networks, sensing and actuation interfaces, biometrics, data analysis and signal processing. His skills are also related to software architectures and parallel programming with experience in different operating systems, programming languages and development environments. He collaborates with the Institute for Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC) of CNR of Rome, with the Institute for Clinical Physiology (IFC) of CNR of Pisa, and with the “Stella Maris” IRCCS Foundation of the University of Pisa.
