Human Decision Support

Valentina Zantedeschi is a Research Scientist in the Human Decision Support program at ServiceNow Research. Her interests cover representation learning, local learning, and decentralized learning, adversarial robustness, and Machine Learning applied to climate science. Before joining ServiceNow, Valentina was a postdoctoral researcher in ML at INRIA and University College London, working with Benjamin Guedj and Pascal Germain on theoretically grounded unsupervised learning. She holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Jean Monnet University (Saint-Étienne, France) with a focus on kernel learning with theoretical guarantees on performance. More specifically, she studied new data-dependent ways of approximating the Gram matrix and learning kernel function through the selection of representing inputs. Since 2019, Valentina is involved in the FDL research accelerator, working on Deep Learning applied to climate science and Earth Observational data to perform cloud classification and weather forecasting at a global scale, as well as ML onboard satellites.
