Mauro Gaspari is associate professor at the Computer Science and
Engineering Department (DISI) of the University of Bologna. His current research interests are AI languages and the development of an intelligent system to support cognitive rehabilitation.
Mauro Gaspari is the author of more than 50 papers in international journals and conference proceedings. His research interests include declarative programming languages, agent communication languages, concurrent and distributed programming, environment for artificial intelligence, applications of artificial intelligence in medicine.
received a Laurea degree in Computer Science at the University of
Pisa in 1986.
In 1987 fellowship from Selenia SpA at the Computer Science Department of the University of Pisa for a research activity on the interpretation of radar signals.
Successively he was in the Giuseppe Attardi research team at
Delphi SpA where he participated in the development of DELPHI
Common Lisp featuring multithreads in the context of one of the
first implementations of the CLOS Meta Object Protocol, and a WAM
based support for unification.
In 1990 he was at the Department of Computer Science of the
University of Pisa.
In 1992 he was at the Human Cognition Research Laboratory of The
Open University (UK) participating in the VITAL ESPRIT II project
and developing the VITAL-KR language.
Since 1993 he is associated at the Department of Computer Science
of the University of Bologna, where he developed one of the first
operational and concurrent specifications of a speech act based ACL
(a subset of KQML) presenting symbol-level requirements for
Successively he developed an Algebra of Actors as a basic model
for concurrency and communication in ACL.
In 1998 he was visiting the Knowledge Media Institute at The Open
University (UK) participating in the IST funded research project
IBROW3 and to the development of UPML which influenced the
modelling of web services in the semantic web effort.
Since 1999 Mauro Gaspari is the coordinator of the AEDSS Project
which aims to develop of an expert system for the evaluation of
EDSS in multiple sclerosis.
In 2002 he was visiting the Knowledge Media Institute at The Open
University (UK) where he designed and developed the communication
infrastructure of the IRS II (Internet Reasoning Service).
From 2006 to 2010 he was involved in the development of an expert
system for fund raising management.
Starting from 2014 he is involved in a project for the development of a intelligent system able to support cognitive rehabilitation.
