Biography

Giovanni Squillero is a professor of computer science at Politecnico di Torino, Department of Control and Computer Engineering. His research mixes computational intelligence and machine learning, with particular emphasis on evolutionary computation, bio-inspired meta-heuristics, and multi-agent systems; in more down-to-earth activities, he develops approximate optimization techniques able to achieve acceptable solutions with reasonable amount of resources. The industrial applications of his work range from electronic CAD to bio-informatics.
