Green-aware AI

Co-PI: Nicola Leone (Università della Calabria)

Artificial Intelligence can play a very important role in contributing to the achievement of the European Green Deal goals and more generally of the objectives of sustainable, fair and inclusive growth set out in the UN Agenda 2030. On the other hand, we are becoming increasingly aware of the negative impacts of AI on the planet, due to the growing consumption of resources and energy in current computational infrastructures. The Spoke 9 will conduct fundamental research to define a new generation of artificial intelligence systems and algorithms, in which – regardless of the specific application domain considered – the green dimension will be considered “by design”. The research group is multidisciplinary and is mainly characterized by great expertise in the following areas:

  • Knowledge representation and Hybrid systems
  • Algorithmic game theory
  • Multiagent systems
  • Computational social choice
  • High-performance computing
  • Edge computing and Internet of Things
  • Explainable AI
  • Argumentation
  • Outlier Detection
  • Machine Learning (deep learning, federated learning, graph-neural networks)
  • Social network analysis, social media analytics, graph mining
  • Optimization (with applications to energy, battery design, and more)
  • Robotics and smart materials
  • Manufacturing


Francesco Scarcello, FAIR’s Spoke 9 coordinator,is a Full Professor of Computer Science at the University of Calabria. He is currently Vice Rector, too. His research interests are in AI, computational complexity, graph and hypergraph theory, constraint satisfaction, logic programming, knowledge representation, non-monotonic reasoning, and database theory. He is an EurAI Fellow and an AAIA Fellow.
