Lucky Encounters: From Optical Tweezers to deep Learning
Giovanni Volpe
ICFO Alumni Seminar (Online)
16 June 2020

In this semi-autobiographical talk, I will look back at my career and its evolution. It all started at ICFO with a PhD on optical tweezers in 2008. It then continued with a series of diverse research projects on different fields: active matter, stochastic thermodynamics, neurosciences and, finally, deep learning. I will emphasize how my career has been shaped by lucky encounters. Encounters that have taken me to places and topics I’d never have imagined beforehand. But it all makes sense, in insight.
