Enhancing your computer science experience with passion and dedication
The ACM Rome Tor Vergata is an ACM Student Chapter. Our mission is to lead and promote sinergies between academia and industry
in the advancement of computer science.
Digital Women Conference 2017
The past 19 october our university hosted the Digital Women Conference. It was a occasion to discuss about female presence in STEM, especially computer science and computer engineering. The initiative has been mainly promoted by Comitato Unico di Garanzia di Ateneo, chaired by Elisabetta Strickland, a professor of algebra at the Department of Mathematics, with the collaboration of Giuseppe Italiano, professor of Computer Engineering at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. The main guest was professor Joan Feigenbaum, the Grace Murray Hopper Professor of Computer Science at Yale University and also a fellow of ACM.
I was personally invited by Giuseppe Italiano to give my testimony, as a student, about my experience on gender discrimination.Read more
Convolutional Neural Networks
Convolutional Neural Networks are a category of Neural Networks that have proven very effective in the computer vision field. ConvNets have proven successful in image classification, identifying faces, object and traffic signs apart from powering vision in robots and self driving cars. ConvNets, therefore, are an important tool for most machine learning engineers today. However, understanding ConvNets and learning to use them can sometimes be an intimidating experience.
The primary purpose of this talk is to explain how ConvNets work and how we can train them efficiently to resolve some important computer vision problems.Join
Computer science is an astonishing world that goes faster and faster every day. We study not to be spectators nor to chase it. We study because we dream of driving it.
