Dr. Antonio LietoBased in Salerno, Italy
Antonio Lieto is an Associate Professor in Computer Science at the University of Salerno (Italy) and a research associate at the ICAR-CNR Institute in Palermo (Italy), where he is member of the Cognitive Systems for Robotics Lab. Previously, (2012-2023) he was a Post-doc researcher, Adjunct Professor, and Assistant Professor at the University of Turin, Department of Computer Science and (2016-2017) a Research Associate and Scientific Consultant at the MEPhI (National Research Nuclear University, Moscow, Russia). He received his Ph.D. in 2012 by the University of Salerno with a thesis concerning the problem of "non classical" conceptual representation and reasoning in formal ontologies. He has been Visiting Researcher at the University of Haifa (Israel), Carnegie Mellon University (USA) and Lund University (Sweden).
His research is at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence, Computational Cognitive Science and Human-Computer Interaction and focuses on the following areas: Knowledge Representation and Automated Reasoning, Commonsense Reasoning, Semantic/Language Technologies, Cognitive Systems and Architectures, Persuasive Technologies. On these topics he has published more than 100 papers in international conferences, journals and books.
Since 2015 he is a member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Cognitive Robotics and is an Associate Editor for Cognitive Systems Research (Elsevier). He has been Vice-President of the Italian Association of Cognitive Sciences (AISC, 2017-2022), and Deputy Editor-in-Chief (2019-2023) of JETAI (Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Artificial Intelligence, Taylor & Francis). He regularly serves in the PC of the main AI and Cognitive Science conferences (IJCAI, ECAI, AAAI, COGSCI).
Antonio Lieto is a member of the ACM SIGAI (ACM Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence) and an ACM Distinguished Speaker. Check also his website: https://www.antoniolieto.net, his Twitter stream at @antoniolieto and his slideshare presentations at https://www.slideshare.net/AntonioLieto.
