Ritratto di Filippo Santoro

Research staff

Filippo Santoro

I am a first year PhD student at Sapienza University of Rome jointly with CREF.  I’ve obtained my Master Degree at Sapienza University of Rome in Theoretical Physics under the supervision of Francesca Tria and Alberto Petri with a thesis named “Avalanches of Novelties and Non Novelties in Written Texts” in which I have studied the statistical properties of Written Texts introducing the concept of Avalanches of Novelties and Non Novelties that comes alongside to the current state of art in this field. Under the supervision of Andrea Tacchella I am currently working on Natural Language Processing techniques that making use of Neural Networks are able to predict Technological Innovations.
