Alessandro Bozzon is Associate Professor with the Web Information Systems group at the Delft University of Technology and a Principal Investigator of Urban Data & Intelligence at the AMS Institute , where he leads the activities of the Urban Data Science team.

His research lies at the intersection of human computation, user modeling and web information retrieval. His goal is to improve well-being and foster inclusion through web-based, personalized social computing systems. Such systems combine the cognitive and reasoning abilities of individuals and crowds with the computational powers of machines, and the value of big amounts of heterogeneous data.

With his background in engineering, Alessandro is passionate about designing and building novel data science methods and tools that are fair, accurate, accountable, and transparent. His passion finds natural applications and valorization in intelligent cities challenges. The Social Glass project, which is conceived and led by Alessandro and perfectly demonstrate his vision for research and valorization.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, and catch the trade winds in your sails.”
