Information Access and Retrieval Meets Quantum Mechanics

Massimo Melucci

University of Padua

Massimo Melucci received the PhD in Computer Engineering in 1996 from the University of Padua, Italy, where he is Associate Professor. Data Science is the general research area where he is especially interested in modelling and experimenting advanced methods for indexing, retrieving and ranking in Information Retrieval (IR) and Machine Learning. Massimo's work on the use of Quantum Mechanics in IR culminated in a book published by Springer in 2015 and in the coordination of the Horizon 2020 MSCA-ITN project "QUARTZ" funded by the EU from 2017 to 2020.


When facing a problem, everyone needs information and searches out the most relevant information to her needs. Due to the big amount of users, needs and data, computerized methods are unavoidable. Information Retrieval (IR) is... [ view full abstract ]
