Keynote talk tentative title: "Machine learning in cardiovascular signals: finally here to stay?"
Short Bio: Roberto Sassi is Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Milan, Italy, where he teaches courses on digital signal and statistics and a master class on biomedical signal processing. He is also a member of the doctoral school in Computer Science and the director of the research lab “Biomedical image and Signal Processing” (BiSP) at the same university. He is an IEEE senior member since 2012 and an active member of the e-Cardiology working group of the European Society of Cardiology, for which he participated in coordinating the development of the recent technical consensus document on heart rate variability. The research activity of Dr. Sassi has been mainly focused in the fields of biomedical signal and image processing and applied mathematics. The methodological techniques have been exploited also to address related challenges in computer science, as biometrics. The results have been published in more than 100 publications in international journals and conferences.
