About

This is what I do.

Hi! I am Francesco Gadaleta, PhD. computer engineer specialized in Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Machine Learning. As researcher in Computer Science at the University of Leuven I developed novel hypervisor-based approaches to computer security, some of which became core technology at VMWare.

As member of the Statistical Genetics Unit at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Li├Ęge, I have been searching for solutions to integrate heterogeneous data (OMICS) within a common framework, assembling networks and merging clinical and genetic data together to make predictions about the risk of diseases for patients in a pre-symptomatic fashion.

I was data scientist at the Gasthuisberg Research Hospital located in Leuven, Belgium - one of the largest research hospitals in Europe - and member of the Non-Invasive-Prenatal-Testing NIPT research group.

I have been part of the Advanced Analytics Team of Johnson&Johnson delivering the most accurate predictive models for disease interceptions and drug recommendation. In addition I have adviced a number of big data technology and strategies that turned out to be essential to the organization on a global scale.

I am currently Chief Data Officer at Abe.ai, creating artificial intelligence solutions for personal finance.

I am based in Belgium and during my spare time I enjoy reading books, designing software and running ultra marathons. Technologies I am excited about include Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, Advanced Computer Programming and Machine Learning.
