Keynote title: “Knowledge Graph Induction using Distantly Supervised Deep Nets”

Knowledge Graph Induction using Distantly Supervised Deep NetsInformation Extraction (IE) analytics are needed to induce Knowledge Graphs (KGs) from text. Adapting IE to new domains is a labor-intensive process requiring Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), Data Scientists and Knowledge Engineers. In addition, a severe limitation of most IE systems is that they are typically unable to identify implicit relations between entities, severely limiting the applicability of KG induction technology to enterprise solutions. In this talk I will present the results of our long-term research program aimed at developing SME friendly technology to induce KGs from domain specific corpora with minimal effort. I’ll describe how to train deep nets for relation extraction using distant supervision and transfer learning by analogy from Linked Open Data and how to identify implicit relations in texts using unary relations, composite contexts and Knowledge Base Completion. Finally, I’ll present a knowledge induction framework able to induce taxonomies directly from text provided as input in any domain, enabling SMEs to easily customize them to their needs.


Alfio Gliozzo is a researcher with over 13 years of postdoctoral experience in the field of Artificial Intelligence. He manages the Knowledge Induction department at IBM T.J. Watson Research and he is a global leader for the area of Knowledge in IBM research AI. His research focuses on automatic induction of knowledge graphs from text and their exploitation for enterprise AI solutions.

Gabriele Arcidiacono, Full Professor

Machine Design and Head of Department of Innovation and Information Engineering (DIIE) at G. Marconi University (Rome, Italy)

Keynote title: “Lean education and society 5.0: the global excellence”

The phenomenon we are experiencing and the model which is now simplistically called Industry 4.0, represents a global revolution in the way of "running businesses". What we are currently living is a radical change, that will impact companies worldwide, from the most traditional to the most innovative, from those with a substantial legacy to those born in more recent times, from the manufacturing to the service sectors.

Improving business processes and allowing talents to exploit and nurture the qualities they are endowed with, will be the conditio sine qua non for a correct use and amplifying effect of the benefits provided by the most current technologies enabled in the Industry 4.0 environment. The hyphen linking all successful companies is Global Excellence, as it is now conceived with the aim to reach the highest level of performances, in the least time possible, with the best manner, and by working synergically on three pillars: process optimization (Process Excellence), talents enhancement along with improved interpersonal behaviors (Human Excellence ) and lastly a proper use of new technologies (Digital Excellence).

Today the big issue is the lack of a cultural revolution which should have instead to go hand in hand with the technological one. A cultural revolution able to support of a truly effective technological development, starts from the training and the listening of the human needs, from the protagonist who is returning to be the master of the change in the human technology oriented model of the Society 5.0.

Keynote title: “The 6-th generation network (6G): drivers, services and requirements.”

The 5G network has recently been launched and worldwide researchers, developers and analysts start to think about the next generation network. What will the next network be in 2030, what services will it provide and how will it be organized? In part, 6G will include all services and technologies that are not currently mature for 5G. Nevertheless, it will go further. The 6G network will be immersive in the environment in which people and objects will insist. The services will follow the user and in a seamless way they will be made available to human and to non-human users. The network will be equipped with the intelligence needed to process data, to predict what to make available to the user in real time and to fully integrate the real and digital world. Finally, the network will be sustainable and social. The network will be able to respect the environment and face the challenges of urbanization, growth and aging of the population and accessibility to social services (e.g. education, health care, well-being services) as well as manufacturing automation and verticals (health, transportations, agriculture, energy). This keynote will introduce the drivers and services that the 6G network will provide, what the communication enablers will be envisaged within 2030.


Romeo Giuliano graduated in Telecommunications Engineering with honors in 1999, received the Master in Business Engineering in 2001 and the PhD in Telecommunications and Microelectronics Engineering in 2004 at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy.

From 2014, he is Associate Professor at the University of Guglielmo Marconi in the Department of Innovation and Information Engineering, teacher of courses in Networks and the Internet, Networks and Wireless Systems and Wireless Systems for Internet Access. From 2011 to 2014, he was a researcher at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in the Department of Enterprise Engineering. From 2001 to 2011, he was a researcher at the RadioLabs (, a research consortium specializing in wireless communications. From 2005 to 2011, he was a contract professor of Radio Transmissions at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. From 1998 to 2000, RG was a researcher at the Telecommunications Research Consortium (CoRiTel).

The main research topics are: 4G, 5G and 6G radio systems, the fixed access unbundling and fiber optic network (e.g. VDSL,, Internet of Things (IoT) systems, indoor and outdoor positioning systems.
