Buongiorno da Roma!
My name is Daria Morozova and I am currently the ESR hired by Pangea Formazione within «INSIGHTS» Innovative Training Network. Without a doubt, the Network is a great opportunity for a young researcher to contribute to the Science and Society. I would be really glad to share with you all the details of this amazing journey and keep you updated on the highlights of every step of the program.
The research project I am involved in is carried out in Rome. It is focused on the exploitation of the latest Machine and Deep Learning techniques to image and sound recognition applications. In particular, my goal is twofold: on one hand, to estimate traffic through crossroads and to identify special class vehicles (e.g. police and ambulance) in order to prioritize them; on the other hand, to develop a tool to coordinate and synchronize the drone swarm for emergency services, especially in search-and-rescue scenarios. This will be done using audio and video data streams collected by sensors on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (or «UAV») in order to detect other UAV in the surroundings for collision avoidance (even during loss of ground communication!), and to detect search-and-rescue targets.
About me: I was born and raised in Moscow, which is the northernmost and coldest megacity and metropolis on Earth. I graduated with a 5-year Specialist’s Degree program in Applied Mathematics and Information Theory at Lomonosov Moscow State University and with a Master Degree in Economics at the National Research University «Higher School of Economics». I also had a chance to study abroad: 5-months overseas stay at the Catholic University of Sacred Heart in Milan, Italy, which gave me the opportunity to improve my linguistic and intercultural skills and facilitated my relocation to Rome. 🙂
In the following blogs I am going to present the current events and a Step by Step approach how to carry out an exciting project: stay tuned!
See you soon!
