Antonio Martini
Antonio MartiniProfessor of Software Engineering, University of Oslo

Speaker

My latest interests are on using AI for software engineering, specifically for technical debt and software architecture, and to improve software engineering practices for AI. In general, my research focus is on managing Technical Debt, Architecture, Technical Leadership, and Agile software development. I'm very keen to work with software companies and improve the state of art and practice together. My experience covers Software Engineering and Management in several contexts: large, embedded software companies, small, web companies, business to business companies, startups.I've collaborated with several large companies such as Ericsson, Volvo, Saab, Axis, Grundfos, Siemens, Bosch, Jeppesen, Siemens, Visma, AKVA Group, Knowit, and more. I've also worked with my own company and I've run consultancy projects to manage and visualize Technical Debt. I've obtained a PhD in Software Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden in 2015.
