- Abstract
Modern society is awash with information, and extracting valuable knowledge has become a task for computers. Science, technology and business are undergoing a profound revolution and becoming increasingly data-driven. Two sources of information in particular have the potential to affect our lives in the short term: genomics and the global media system. This talk for a general scientific audience
will overview positive and negative aspects of this new fronteer, focusing on big picture rather than on technical aspects.

- Breve Curriculum
Nello Cristianini is a Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Bristol since March 2006, and a holder of the Royal Society Wolfson Merit Award. He has wide research interests in the area of computational pattern analysis and its application to problems ranging from genomics, to computational linguistics and artificial intelligence systems. He has contributed extensively to the field of kernel methods. Before the appointment to Bristol he has held faculty positions at the University of California, Davis, and visiting positions at the University of California, Berkeley, and in many other institutions. Before that he was a research assistant at Royal Holloway, University of London. He has also covered industrial positions. He has a PhD from the University of Bristol, a MSc from Royal Holloway, University of London, and a Degree in Physics from University of Trieste. Since 2001 has been Action Editor of the Journal of Machine Learning Research (JMLR), and since 2005 also Associate Editor of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR). He is co-author of the books 'An Introduction to Support Vector Machines' and 'Kernel Methods for Pattern Analysis' with John Shawe-Taylor, and "Introduction to Computational Genomics" with Matt Hahn (all published by Cambridge University Press).
