After graduating with a degree in physics from the University of Milano, Giuseppina Gini specialized in computer science as a post-doc fellow and worked on different artificial intelligence projects at the Politecnico di Milano (1972-1976). From 1976 to 1987, she held an assistant professor position at Politecnico di Milano, as well as various appointments as a visiting scholar and research assistant at Stanford University (California, USA) (in the Artificial intelligence Laboratory of the Computer Science Department and in the NMR Laboratory of the Medical School) and at SRI. Since 1987, she has been an associate professor at Politecnico di Milano, Faculty of Computer Engineering.

Gini has written and edited two books, and has authored about 200 refereed papers in scientific journals, books, and conference proceedings. Among other professional services, she organized and chaired the Symposium on Predictive Toxicology (Stanford, March 1999) for the American Association of Artificial Intelligence, and the AI&Math special session on Knowledge Exploration in Predictive Toxicology (January 2000).

She has been a partner in 16 international research projects (for NATO and the EU), and the coordinator of an EU project devoted to the development of new expert system methods in predictive toxicology. Moreover, she has directed seven national research projects.

Her main areas of research are knowledge representation and reasoning, with an emphasis on algorithms, biologically inspired solutions, hybrid systems, and computational efficiency. The main application areas in which she focuses her work are spatial and visual reasoning, human-machine interaction, and data mining. Over the course of her career, she has developed languages, simulators, and planners. In addition, she has cooperated with many European research centers over the past 15 years on various projects related to toxicity modeling, predictive systems, data mining, and in silico models.

Gini has been a reviewer for Computing Reviews since 1985, and has over 60 published reviews.

  Reactionless visual servoing of a multi-arm space robot combined with other manipulation tasks
Abdul Hafez A., Mithun P., Anurag V., Shah S., Krishna K.  Robotics and Autonomous Systems 911-10, 2017. Type: Article

Visual servoing is an effective control method for autonomous manipulators, allowing them to reach a target using visual feedback. Mobile manipulation addresses the problem of controlling arms mounted on mobile bases, where visual servoing is stil...

   Prediction of anti-cancer drug response by kernelized multi-task learning
Tan M.  Artificial Intelligence in Medicine 7370-77, 2016. Type: Article

Predicting the drug response of patients in cancer therapy can be obtained by models built on large datasets of in-vitro tests on cancer cell lines. Such data is complex, as different data types are involved: genes, cell lines, and anticancer drug...

  Target detection and tracking by bionanosensor networks
Okaie Y., Nakano T., Hara T., Nishio S.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 68 pp. Type: Book

Bionanosensor networks are spatially distributed populations of sensors that use the methods of network engineering in a new way. Bionanosensors can be expressly engineered for a task, or be natural machines such as bacteria. The important point i...

   Bayesian multi-tensor factorization
Khan S., Leppäaho E., Kaski S.  Machine Learning 105(2): 233-253, 2016. Type: Article

Data mining is increasingly facing the problem of extracting new knowledge from experimental data collected from complex phenomena. To extract hidden information, such datasets can be decomposed into the components that underlie them. Because data...

  Open issues in evolutionary robotics
Silva F., Duarte M., Correia L., Oliveira S., Christensen A.  Evolutionary Computation 24(2): 205-236, 2016. Type: Article

Evolutionary methods can be adopted for developing controllers for task-oriented robots without the need to fully write models and programs. Initially, the considered task was the navigation of wheeled mobile robots; today, methods are available f...

  Collaboration in multi-robot exploration: To meet or not to meet?
Andre T., Bettstetter C.  Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems 82(2): 325-337, 2016. Type: Article

We expect that using more communicating robots to explore and map an environment will reduce the time to completion of the task. But this basic question is sometimes neglected: Is the cooperation between more robots really useful?...

  Exponential moving average based multiagent reinforcement learning algorithms
Awheda M., Schwartz H.  Artificial Intelligence Review 45(3): 299-332, 2016. Type: Article

Reinforcement learning for multiagent systems aims to find optimal policies that can be learned by agents during their interaction in cooperative or competitive games. In game theory, the target is reaching the Nash equilibrium, where each agent i...

  Search and tracking algorithms for swarms of robots
Senanayake M., Senthooran I., Barca J., Chung H., Kamruzzaman J., Murshed M.  Robotics and Autonomous Systems 75, Part B, 422-434, 2016. Type: Article

Swarm intelligence (SI) systems exploit artificial or physical agents to solve optimization tasks without the need for a supervisor. Can swarm robots benefit from SI? To answer, this paper surveys how the search-and-tracking problem can be solved ...

  A novel locally guided genome reassembling technique using an artificial ant system
Baidya S., De R.  Applied Intelligence 43(2): 397-411, 2015. Type: Article

Since no technique exists to read the full DNA, DNA fragments (called reads) are generated through chemical processing, and algorithms try to reconstruct the complete DNA from them. Genome reassembling is a challenging optimization problem since r...

  A supervised particle swarm algorithm for real-parameter optimization
Cheung N., Ding X., Shen H.  Applied Intelligence 43(4): 825-839, 2015. Type: Article

Optimization using swarm algorithms is a topic that has attracted research since the introduction of the particle swarm optimization (PSO) paradigm in the 1990s. Many variants of the method aim at improving convergence while avoiding local minima....
