Experimental Sciences & Mathematics
Prof. Gianni De Fabritiis leads the computational science laboratory whose interests are the application of computation to solve real world problems, where we define intelligence as a form of computation. The research group develops machine learning models with intelligent, useful behavior using reinforcement learning and deep learning, for specific environments. Biomedicine is one environment where physics-based simulations and machine learning to provide novel, innovative approaches. The group leads GPUGRID.net, one of the top distributed computing projects worldwide for running molecular simulations on GPUs and the open platform PlayMolecule.org that has around a thousand registered scientists. The group and its spin-off company Acellera have collaborated with major industries worldwide like Sony, Nvidia, HTC mobile, UCB, Pfizer, Biogen and Novartis.
