About Me

Hi, I'm Tommaso, I was born on 7 September 1991 and I'm a Ph.D. student in computer science at "La Sapienza University of Rome". I obtained my bachelor degree in 3/3 years with vote of 108/110 and my master degree in 2/2 years with a vote of 110/110 cum laude. My master thesis is in the field of Natural Language Processing and aimed at automatic building a taxonomy for both, Wikipedia pages and categories, potentially in 250 different languages. This was a joint work with other Ph.D. students of LCL @ Sapienza and supervised by prof. Roberto Navigli (See publications page for further information).

I always liked technology, but I've also been interested in human science, infact i've graduated at classical high school and I also studied classical guitar for about 10 years.
I love travelling, infact i use to visit some countries during the summer hollidays with my friends; I've been in the most important european capitals and London and Berlin are the ones i liked the most, because of the multicultural atmosphere, beauty of architecture, organization and the broadmindedness.
I usally do sport, especially parkour. I really like to work out, it helps me to relax and free my mind. I also play guitar in a duo with a friend of mie.

Two Is Bigger (and Better) Than One: the Wikipedia Bitaxonomy Project

WiBi is an approach to the automatic creation of a bitaxonomy for Wikipedia, that is, an integrated taxonomy of Wikipage pages and categories. We leverage the information available in either one of the taxonomies to reinforce the creation of the other taxonomy. Our experiments show higher quality and coverage than state-of-the-art resources like DBpedia, YAGO, MENTA, WikiNet and WikiTaxonomy. WiBi is available at http://wibitaxonomy.org.

MultiWiBi: The multilingual Wikipedia bitaxonomy project

We present MultiWiBi, an approach to the automatic creation of two integrated taxonomies for Wikipedia pages and categories written in different languages. In order to create both taxonomies in an arbitrary language, we first build them in English and then project the two taxonomies to other languages automatically, without the help of language-specific resources or tools. The process crucially leverages a novel algorithm which exploits the information available in either one of the taxonomies to reinforce the creation of the other taxonomy. Our experiments show that the taxonomical information in MultiWiBi is characterized by a higher quality and coverage than state-of-the-art resources like DBpedia, YAGO, MENTA, WikiNet, LHD and WikiTaxonomy, also across languages. MultiWiBi is available online at http://wibitaxonomy.org/multiwibi.
