Davide Menini
Swisscom
Hello! I'm Davide. Before delving into my work, let's start by mentioning that I have a deep passion for AI (who doesn't?), with a particular interest in the realm of Generative AI. If you share this interest, let's connect to share ideas and help each other stay updated on the latest advancements.
I currently work as a Software Engineer in Swisscom's Conversational AI department, where I consider myself fortunate to transform my passion into tangible and beneficial solutions for others. My current responsibilities revolve around leveraging Large Language Models (LLMs) and associated frameworks to provide top-notch services to our customers. LLMs are powerful tools, but they truly shine when integrated into sophisticated and trustworthy applications capable of connecting them to reliable data sources and empowering them with reasoning capabilities.
Before LLMs' era, I was developing Transformer-based AI services for tasks such as Intent Classification, Information Retrieval, and Machine Translation for our customer service chatbot.
´╗┐Education-wise, I completed my BSc in Electronics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, and later I received my MSc in Information Technology and Electrical Engineering from ETH Zurich, with a focus on Machine Learning and Computer Vision. Some time after my graduation I also published my Master Thesis work at ICRA 2022.
