Agnese Chiatti

PhD Research Student

Agnese is a PhD Student at the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi), supervised by Prof. Enrico Motta and Dr. Enrico Daga. Her research focuses on combining Knowledge technologies with Machine Learning to enhance the robots' ability to assist us with our daily tasks. Specifically, she is interested in how robots can visually learn how to build a model of their environment and maintain it over time. She was part of the organising team of the 1st International Robotic competition to be held in a shopping mall (the 2019 SciRoc Challenge). Agnese received her M.S. in Information Sciences and Technology from the Pennsylvania State University.
