These technologies include virtual organizations, automatic negotiation, normative systems, trust and reputation models, automatic argumentation, etc.

Educational technologies and Big Data By big data we mean a collection of massive and complex data sets that are difficult to process using conventional data management tools and applications. Educational technologies are one area where big data is gaining momentum at a rapid pace. The research is dedicated to the study and implementation of innovative solutions for the processing of massive data in the area of educational technologies. In particular, emphasis is placed on the development and integration of innovative digital tools, solutions and services for learning and teaching. Software production methods for the development of Big Data applications. Genomic Data Management

Genomic Information Systems and bioinformatics (Specification of conceptual models and bioinformatics ontologies, Development of software for the management and analysis of genomic information, Analysis and optimization of databases with genomic information). AI in bioinformatics and biomedical sciences: Design, tuning and evaluation of computational models for problem solving in genomics and systems biology. Fundamentally, we work with discrete models based on natural computation and the theory of formal languages whose adjustment, in some cases, is performed by means of machine learning techniques that allow a great adaptability to the problem domain. We use these models for new systems for prediction and annotation of genomic information. In addition, we use natural computation models (especially membrane computing) for the design, implementation and calibration of simulators of complex biological systems with relevance to health sciences.

Description

Explainable AI in the Life Sciences Understanding and manipulating the genome implies understanding and manipulating life as we perceive it on our planet. This major challenge has implications for everything related to health. This line of work aims to develop platforms that are able to search, identify, retrieve and interpret relevant genomic information. This information must be obtained from constantly growing repositories, with immense volumes of data in which machine learning techniques are indispensable to select the information of value in a context of clinical diagnosis and preventive treatment that integrates genomic knowledge into medical practice as we understand it. Integrating conventional clinical information with genomic information in an AI setting is essential to develop viable and reliable precision medicine. The application of AI techniques is essential to interpret the chaos of genomic data being generated in order to determine which data are clinically relevant.

Multi-agent systems. The multi-agent systems paradigm is a growing area of interest in AI. This is due to its application to the resolution of complex problems, where classical techniques fail to obtain a satisfactory solution. Multi-agent systems (MAS) address the need for communication and collaboration between autonomous agents (entities whose behavior is autonomous) - Virtual markets.

Persuasion Technologies. Persuasive technologies is an interdisciplinary field of research that focuses on the design and development of interactive technologies that can create, maintain, or change human thought and behavior using persuasive techniques. These technologies are still an emerging scientific field that faces multiple challenges, such as: user acceptance and actual use of the technology; adaptation and customization of the system for the user; perceived usefulness and user satisfaction; detection of events at the right time; continuity of the new behavior over time; and ethical issues.

Description

Planning and consulting systems. Planning problems are related to problems of decision making and actions that should take place in particular environments to achieve specific objectives. Decisions will be determined by the context of the problem, the pattern of action, the timing of actions and the resources required. The multi-agent view requires cooperative planning to combine and complement the actions that different actors should take. Demographic, filtering or social context and behavioural analysis techniques are applied. Recommender systems A recommender system is a personalization tool that attempts to provide people with a list of information items that best suits their individual tastes. It influences user preferences by analyzing available user data, information about other users, and information about the environment, and selects the elements that best match these preferences. In short, a recommender system offers the possibility to customize the filtering of information so that only information adapted to the user's needs and preferences is displayed. We have a long experience in the development of tourism recommender systems, both for individuals and groups, based on different types of information, such as explicit/implicit preferences, user psychology, etc. - Autonomous vehicles. Autonomous systems in robotics are designed to perform tasks without the supervision of human controllers. There are several advantages: minimizing controller fatigue, minimizing risk, minimizing operating costs, and improving product and quality control operations.

Responsible AI

Description

Responsible Artificial Intelligence (Responsible AI -RAI-; AI Safety/Security and Explainable AI -XAI-) Starting from the premise that artificial intelligence must be responsible, reliable, based on ethical and social values, human-centered, safe and secure and interpretable/explainable, we work in several directions. On the one hand, in relation to learning we work on techniques for explaining black box models (mimetic models), on the analysis of adversarial attacks according to the learning family used and, more recently, on how different AI paradigms are related and their effect on their security and robustness. On the other hand, in relation to symbolic methods, we work on provable security, cryptographic protocol analysis, reversible computation and formal methods for the analysis, modeling, verification, synthesis, debugging, certification, transformation, and optimization of critical and intelligent systems. We apply normative systems theory to endow AI systems with ethical values.
