He also worked as responsible of medical informatics and data analysis in hospitals as Policlinic of Milan, Desio Hospital. From 1978 to 1986 he was designer, developer and responsible at Desio Hospital of epidemiological medical information system in the frame of the health and epidemiologic surveillance program of population involved in the dioxin environment disaster in the Seveso city area (at north of Milan). His activity consists on studies and designs of Health/Hospital Information Systems, computerization of medical record and clinical database, statistical software applications and artificial intelligence techniques in bio-medicine (expert systems, artificial neural networks, etc.), Telemedicine systems, telecare services, web sites and portals in medical applications. He is responsible of several research projects on Medical Informatics and Telemedicine, involved in Italian, European and International R&D Programmes. He is author of around 400 publications (national and international) in Medical Informatics, Telemedicine and software for data analysis and mining, artificial neural networks, Neuroinformatics and Artificial Intelligence, knowledge management and ontology.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is devoted to creating intelligent software and hardware that imitates the human mind. The main goal of AI is to make computers smarter by creating software that will allow a computer to mimic some of the functions of the human brain in selected applications. Applications of AI technology include; general problem solving, knowledge engineering(KE), expert systems, information mining, natural language processing, computer vision, robotics, law, education, and healthcare. This workshop discusses the recent trends of AI and KE paradigms for developing intelligent healthcare and smart bio-medical systems.The workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between physicians and computer scientists, and knowledge engineers to address the essential issues in those areas.
