About Me

Born in 1981, Male, Italian.

My name is Salvatore and I graduated cum laude with a master’s degree in Computer Science Engineering for Intelligent Systems at University of Palermo, Italy, presenting a Thesis in Robotics on Design and Implementation of Modules for the Extraction of Biometric Parameters in an Augmented BCI Framework.
Previously graduated with the grade of 110/110 with a degree in Computer Science Engineering, presenting a Thesis in Artificial Intelligence / Latent Semantic Analysis on an Intelligent Interrogation System on official documents of the European Parliament.

Besides Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, I am also interested in Human-Robot Interaction, Machine Learning, Cognitive Robotics, Image processing, 3D Computer Graphics, Mechatronics, Cybernetics, Bionics, Neuroprosthetics, Mathematics, Physics, Cryptography, Algorithms, Networks, Autonomous Vehicles.
During the course of the academic studies I have learned to program in different programming languages, including C, C++, Java, Python, LISP, Matlab. Past experiences also on Basic, QuickBasic, VisualBasic and specific languages such as SQL, Gams, Prolog, S-Golog, UML, XML, AIML.

I am looking forward to starting my PhD, hopefully with interesting opportunities abroad, in particular in Japan: I think it is a wonderful place where I would love to spend my life in.
I have lived in Kyoto for a month.

I am interested in learning about Japan, the Japanese language, culture, lifestyle and job opportunities. I am especially interested in doing academic and industrial research in Japan, mainly on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.

I like drawing and I would also like to try painting, sculpting and hand-crafting in general.
Beside traditional visual fine art, I also enjoy digital drawing/painting/texturing using mainly The GIMP, Photoshop, and 3D modelling using Blender 3D with interest in the possible integration of 3D modelling with educational or gaming platforms. I tend to use free and open source software when possible, though, each tool is suitable for the particular task that it is needed for.

Last but not least, I am interested in photography and architecture, and I am an attentive observer of everything that surrounds me.
I would like to have time to travel and see places around the world.
