Giulia Rizzoli is a PhD student in Information Engineering at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua.
She received her Bachelor’s degree in Information Engineering in 2019 and her Master’s Degree with honors in ICT for Internet and Multimedia in 2021, both from the University of Padova.
As part of her master’s thesis, she conducted research at Sony in Stuttgart, Germany.
Her research interests include multi-modal learning, domain adaptation, federated and continual learning applied to computer vision tasks.

Research areas

Multi-Modal Learning

Multimodal learning is an area of machine learning that deals with integrating and analysing information from multiple modalities, such as text, images, audio, and video.

Federated Learning

Federated learning is a decentralized machine learning approach that allows multiple devices to train a shared model collaboratively while keeping their local data private.

Domain Adaptation

Domain Adaptation aligns a network from a source dataset to perform on a target dataset with a different distribution. Complex neural networks require abundant labeled data, which limits their application in many real-world scenarios.

Continual Learning

Continual learning refers to the ability of a machine learning model to continuously acquire and retain knowledge from new data while retaining previously learned information.
