Marcella Cornia

Marcella Cornia is currently a PhD student at the International Doctorate School in ICT of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. She works under the supervision of Prof. Rita Cucchiara on Deep Learning, and Computer Vision. Her research interests include Visual Saliency Prediction, Image and Video Captioning, and Multimedia for Cultural Heritage.

In 2016, she received a travel grant to attend the Women in Computer Vision Workshop at CVPR, which took place in Las Vegas. In 2017, she won the LSUN Saliency Prediction Challenge, held in conjunction with the Scene Understanding Workshop at CVPR. In 2018, she received two travel grants to attend the Women in Computer Vision Workshop at CVPR and ECCV, which took place in Salt Lake City and Munich respectively.

Keywords: Saliency Prediction, Image and Video Captioning, Deep Learning

 

Theses supervision:

  • Matteo Tomei (MSc) - Constrained image-to-image translation
  • Angelo Carraggi (MSc) - Visual-semantic embeddings
  • Stefano Pini (MSc) - Linking people and objects with their proper names in videos
