Active aging aims to enhance and support the independent living of ageing people. Intelligent systems are key tools to respond to the real needs not only of elderly people but also of caregivers, service providers and public authorities. Intelligent processing of data from the Internet of Things and smart technologies plays a significant role in […]

Forensic anthropology and human identification Research Line

The identification of missing persons is a global challenge. The number of found and unidentified bodies increases every year due to factors such as natural disasters (increasingly frequent due to climate change) and conflicts (wars, terrorism, etc.), among others. Forensic medicine is the discipline that, among its main tasks, deals with the identification of human […]

Translational biomedical research Research Line

The rapid development and implementation of data repositories that contain representations of complex objects, such as time series or spatial data, has not been accompanied by a greater availability of tools that allow the search of these databases in terms close to the language of and based on criteria that are meaningful to the intended […]

The increasing availability of artificial intelligence tools and algorithms for video processing has increased the number of potential applications in the field of security through video surveillance techniques. In this line of research at the DaSCI Institute, algorithms and methodologies are being developed for video processing in the field of security. We must highlight the […]

Connected Health Research Line

Connected health is the provision of health and medical care services using a digital ecosystem. Digital ecosystems have the capacity to obtain and exchange different types of data through multiple sources of information (devices with sensors, medical equipment, medical images, expert knowledge, etc.) and acquire new knowledge with the main objective of making better decisions […]

Computational business management and marketing models Research Line

In the real world there are many examples of complex systems such as the social ones (people have a natural tendency to form groups: families, circles of friends, professional or religious groups, cities, nations, etc.), the business/economic ones (companies, clients, etc.) and the biological ones (e.g. metabolic networks). Given the important role that complex systems […]

Educational Data Mining Research Line

Educational Data Mining (EDM) and Learning Analytics (LA) are research areas that aim to develop methods for measuring, collecting, exploiting, and analyzing data from educational environments to solve critical educational issues and problems. This research area, which began to be developed at the beginning of 2000, has grown enormously, successfully addressing student modeling problems, predicting […]

The introduction of new technologies in the industry is changing the way many companies work. Technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud services, big data, robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, or Blockchain will be the key to how companies offer their products and services in the future. What has been called Industry 4.0 […]

AI and remote sensing for biodiversity and global change Research Line

Global change and the loss of biodiversity are one of the major challenges that threat human well-being at present. Detecting, understanding and monitoring spatiotemporal changes in the earth surface from the local to the global scale are of paramount importance for researchers and policy makers all around the world. Currently, one of the main resources […]

Knowledge extraction from scientific and technological sources Research Line

Currently, innovation, development and research activities, and in particular science and technology, generate large amount of information derived from the scientific method, such as articles, theses, patents, clinical trials, among others. In fact, the total volume increases year by year, following a constant growth pattern. In this sense, the global system of science and technology […]

Smart cities, territories and tourism Research Line

Smart Cities is a highly important research area because of its great impact on our lives. In 2050 there will be more people living in cities than in the whole planet at the beginning of the 21st century, so the focus on quality of life or the poverty gap will be on cities. 80% of […]
