Inspired by the rapid evolution of computer science and its ability to improve lives, Fabio Cappello chose to study for a master's in Computer Science. After graduation, he joined the Research and Development (R&D) department of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Fabio chose to study at Reading because of the excellent campus and location, as well as the course content. Modules focused on modern topics in computer science, such as data mining, big data and machine learning.
The course also covered interesting research applications, including: brain-computer interface, swarm intelligence, artificial life, and graphics processing unit (GPU) computing.
During his time at Reading, Fabio was inspired by the Department's research on computer-aided diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. He decided to focus on this fascinating and vital topic for his dissertation.
