Introduction
I am a Researcher at ICAR - CNR Institute. I am a member of the Self-Learning and Self-Adaptive Systems group. I am interested in the identification of methods for providing reasoning capabilities to cognitive systems. At the present, I’m involved in a new stream of research for exploring aspects regarding the assignment of self-learning and self-adaptation features to complex systems, including cyber-physical systems, robotic systems and software agents.

L’invecchiamento della popolazione e quindi il cambiamento nelle modalità di assistenza, l’aumento dei costi, la sempre più crescente richiesta di qualità e di efficienza sono alcuni dei parametri con i quali la medicina e le organizzazioni sanitarie di oggi si scontrano ogni giorno. Cosa è necessario per rispondere al meglio alla domanda del pazie...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The characteristic of being autonomous and proactive makes the agents able to explore a wide solution space, that dynamically changes or contains uncertainty. We propose a language for describing system goals that may be injected at run-time into the system. The novelty of our approach consists in decoupling the business goals (what is expected) an...

Traditionally, when specifying system requirements, analysts cut the solution space in order to define the expected system behavior in a determinis- tic way. However, the characteristics of being autonomous and proactive make the agents able to explore a wider solution space, even when this space dynami- cally changes or contains uncertainty. We pr...
