Natural and Collaborative Interaction System for for Medical Environments

Project and Development of a Natural and Collaborative Interaction System for Medical Environments. The System should provide and support access to information, the visualization and manipulation of the results in the most natural way possible. For this reason it is required the integration of a set of modules hardware/software that support the manipulation of multimedia informations through collaborative tools based on paradigms of natural interaction.

Here we present a set of actions:

C++ Ransac Method Implementation

Ransac Method implemented in C++ for robust keypoints estimation in Computer Vision


Random sample consensus (RANSAC) is an iterative method to estimate parameters of a mathematical model from a set of observed data which contains outliers. It is a non-deterministic algorithm in the sense that it produces a reasonable result only with a certain probability, with this probability increasing as more iterations are allowed. The algorithm was first published by Fischler and Bolles at SRI International in 1981.

A basic assumption is that the data consists of “inliers”, i.e., data whose distribution can be explained by some set of model parameters, though may be subject to noise, and “outliers” which are data that do not fit the model. The outliers can come, e.g., from extreme values of the noise or from erroneous measurements or incorrect hypotheses about the interpretation of data. RANSAC also assumes that, given a (usually small) set of inliers, there exists a procedure which can estimate the parameters of a model that optimally explains or fits this data.

Opening the visitor center with “MyFirenze” project (Firenze Santa Maria Novella)

On 4 April 2014 was opened a new visitor center in Piazza Stazione near Santa Maria Novella’s train station (Firenze). This opening has involved a project developed by the Micc (Media Integration and Communication Center -University of Florence) lab in collaboration with the municipality of Florence.

The project name is “MyFirenze” and it is a framework for itinerary personalization which includes the use of a touchscreen correlated with the use of a mobile device.


here some newspaper articles from two italian newspapers :

AI*HCI 2013 (Workshop)




AI*HCI 2013 is a Workshop of the XIII AI*IA Conference which took place in Torino on 4 of December 2013. The main aim of this workshop is to bridge Artificial Intelligence and Human Computer Interaction. 

I presented a recent work about Itinerary Personalization in the context of Smart Cities

Making Operating Systems Virtual: Mac OS X approaches

This is a special “project” for me because it was done during my erasmus experience at Vrije Universiteit Brussel .

The related course  it’s named “Operating System and Security” and it’s taught by  Prof. Dr. Ir.  Martin Timmerman .
