Data Scientist AI Center


Rozzano, IT, 20089


The Data Scientist has experience in machine learning/deep learning techniques applied to structured and unstructured data (i.e. textual data).

The candidate will research and develop new statistical and machine-learning methods for the analysis of medical reports, applying Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to real-world healthcare data.

The candidate will contribute to developing new technologies for data synthesis and digital twins using a wide variety of machine learning and deep learning methods; investigating various research topics in machine learning and statistics to determine the best method for medical data synthesis and effective approach for generated data validation.

The AI Center of Humanitas is focused in research in the field of Artificial Intelligence applied in healthcare. Research and development areas include predictive and decision-support systems based on data-driven model (ML/DL models) to optimize clinical processes and ultimately improve the quality of patient care. We are a team of multidisciplinary scientists who work day by day on e-health and AI projects, by collaborating with clinical staff (doctors, nurses, researchers) and management staff.
