Eugenio Lentini was born in Milano, Italy, where he studied Computer Science. He received B.Sc. and M.Sc. from Politecnico di Milano. In his Diploma thesis entitled “An Evaluation Methodology for Collaborative Recommender Systems”, Eugenio investigated a new and innovative methodology to evaluate the quality of recommendations and compared different recommender algorithms. He also implemented a new efficient recommender algorithm based on Naive Bayesian Networks. Finally, he proposed a multi-model recommender system in order to improve the quality of recommendations for commercial systems.
