The LEarning for Optimization and coNtrol (LEON) Group is part of the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IDSIA), a research institute located in Lugano, Switzerland, affiliated with the Department of Innovative Technologies at the Scuola Universitaria Professionale della Svizzera Italiana (SUPSI) and the Faculty of Informatics at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI).
The LEON Group is led by Dario Piga. The research activities of the team are at the intersection between dynamical systems, control theory, and machine learning, with several applications in the fields of robotics, manufacturing and process control.
LEON closely collaborates at IDSIA with researchers from the Imprecise Probability Group
led by Prof. Marco Zaffalon and from the Robotics Lab led by Prof. Alessandro Giusti
. Researchers of LEON also collaborate with international universities and industrial partners.
Most of the activities of the LEON Lab are financially supported through advanced research projects funded by the European Union, the Swiss Innovation Agency Innosuisse, the Hasler Stiftung and by other local and international research programs.
