After the experience in Zurich I moved back to Italy, Lucca in the IMT High Studies institute where, in the AXES unity I studied mostly data science for economics and social network analysis publishing papers with Massimo Riccaboni, Zhen Zhou, Alessandro Chessa and Guido Caldarelli and others. We published papers on financial networks introducing the Accounting network concept: a new way to use the data in the financial statements to cluster and study the financial institutions. Meanwhile, with the Linkalab team we explored the technologies related to social networks (Twitter and Facebook), cloud and BigData. We are currently using Spark and S3 to process a large amount of data.
For the future, I foresee the usage of AI tools for data analysis, smart clouds and IoT with challenges of privacy, security and computing structures.
