RESEARCH AND ACADEMIC
Research and training are the heart of true technological innovation
Today, Artificial Intelligence technology is a precious element giving companies a pathway towards new productive realities.
QuestIT was established as a spin-off from the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the Department of Computer Engineering headed by Prof. Marco Gori, and together with prof. Marco Maggini, contributed to the foundation of the company and to date, Prof. Gori is the acting Scientific Consultant.
In order to bring to the market the best technology, aligned to state-of-the-art international scientific literature and developed by the most competent professionals, we believe that investment in training people and promoting academic research is fundamental. We want to transform ideas brainstormed in research laboratories into tools for innovation for the business world, allowing university researchers and our own researchers to work side by side, bringing the worlds of academy and business closer together.
The company has always maintained a close and deep connection with the academic world. Currently, numerous scientific projects can be counted that have been developed in collaboration with the University.
SIENA ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE LAB
The SAILab is a university research laboratory in the field of Artificial Intelligence directed by Prof. Marco Gori boasting nearly 30 researchers, including both professors and doctoral students. The laboratory is focused on researching Machine Learning techniques and the development of new theories on learning in structured domains to shape recognition and web mining.
QuestIT has always financed numerous scholarships for research grants and doctorates and the purchase of equipment for activities for the research laboratories themselves.The collaboration with the laboratory also boasts numerous scientific articles that support the quality of our technologies.
MASTER IN BUSINESS COMMUNICATION
Since 2017 QuestIT and the Master in Business Communication have activated the joint laboratory in Artificial Intelligence, data analysis and social media marketing.
The QuestIT Lab is an experimental laboratory open to all University students available during the Master course. It involves companies and local institutions that embrace the challenge with technological innovation in order to define their digital communication strategies. The aim is to experience knowledge contamination; contamination between the worlds of business and research. Activities are spread over approximately 50 hours and include team planning and application on real business case studies, allowing students to learn about and experience continuously evolving high-level smart software.
