Carlo Baldassi has recently joined the Department of Decision Sciences as an Assistant Professor and BIDSA as an Affiliate. His research takes on optimization problems and complex systems, in particular in the field of computational neuroscience and machine learning.

Recently welcomed into the Department of Decision Sciences at Bocconi, coming from the Polytechnic University of Turin, Baldassi firmly believes that big data modeling and management play an important role in a research university. “The amount of data available is enormous and constantly growing. The problem is how to process and use this information. Any institution that starts on this research path holds a huge advantage over its competitors”. Click for the full article by Claudio Todesco
