A.I. Tech was founded as a university spinoff of the Artificial Intelligence group at the University of Salerno. Since the first steps, soon after its foundation, much progress has been made, and today our reputation on the market rewards us for our commitment to steady improvement.

And if you take a look at the CVs of the founding members who shape the scientific ideas and strategies that are transformed into products over time, and put together their experience in the field of artificial vision and artificial intelligence in general, you will arrive at well over a hundred years!

Alessia Saggese

After graduating cum laude in 2010, at the age of 24, in Computer Engineering at the University of Salerno, Alessia obtained her international PhD degree in 2014, awarded jointly by the University of Salerno and ENSICAEN (in France). During her PhD, she worked on tracking algorithms and intelligent video and audio surveillance applications. In 2016, the Italian association of researchers in computer vision and machine learning awarded her the prize for the best PhD thesis in the two-year period 2014-2016. At the age of 34 she became Associate Professor at the University of Salerno, teacher of the courses “Cognitive Robotics”, “Autonomous Driving Vehicles” and “System Programming”. For the last 10 years his research activities have been mainly focused on Artificial Vision and Artificial Intelligence algorithms for Smart Video Surveillance and Cognitive Robotics applications.

Vincenzo Carletti

Vincenzo graduated cum laude in Computer Engineering in 2012 at the University of Salerno, and obtained his international PhD degree in 2016, awarded jointly by the University of Salerno and ENSICAEN (in France). During his PhD he addressed issues related to structural pattern recognition.
Today he is a Researcher (RTD-B) at the University of Salerno, professor of “Embedded Systems” and “Advanced Embedded Systems”. His research interests include the optimisation of Artificial Intelligence algorithms for Embedded Systems and Adversarial Machine Learning techniques.
