Sebastiano Vascon is a tenured assistant professor (RTDb) at Ca' Foscari University of Venice at the Department of Environmental Sciences, Computer Science and Statistics (DAIS) and he is also affiliated with the European Centre for Living Technology. In May 2016 he obtained the title of Ph.D. from the Italian Institute of Technology and the University of Genoa, with a thesis on evolutionary game theory applied in the context of pattern analysis and computer vision. During the doctorate period, he focused his efforts on the detection of conversational groups to improve video surveillance systems and in the study of brain connectomics for the automatic analysis of neuronal connections between the hemispheres. Besides, he spent a visiting period at the ETH of Zurich working on multiple objects tracking and automatic video segmentation. He then spent a few years as a PostDoc researcher at Ca' Foscari University of Venice, before moving to the Technical University of Munich where he worked on Active Learning models with game theoretic principles. In 2021 he gets back to Ca' Foscari University as a tenured assistant professor.

Currently, his research interests are focused on artificial intelligence, graph neural networkscomputer vision, machine learning and graph theory using models inspired by the game theory.
