"Investigación, innovación y docencia, los tres ejes de la vida académica" discurso de agradecimiento de Asunción Gómez-Pérez

Discurso de agradecimiento de Asunción Gómez-Pérez, con motivo de la entrega del premio Aritmel dentro de los Premios Nacionales de Informática 2015

Sr. Vicerrector de Investigación y Transferencia de la Universidad de Salamanca, Excelentísimo Rector de la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, , Sres. Presidente y Vice-Presidente de la Sociedad Científica Informática de España, Sr. Director de la Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Informáticos de la UPM, Autoridades, colegas, familiares, amigos, señoras y señores.

Es para mí un gran honor recibir el Premio Aritmel 2015. Me siento muy honrada, orgullosa y feliz por el reconocimiento recibido. Quiero agradecer a la Asociación Española de Inteligencia Artificial, y a su Presidenta, por haber presentado mi candidatura, a los miembros del jurado el haberla seleccionado, y a la Sociedad Científica de Informática de España, su concesión.

Haciendo un breve recorrido por mis 25 años de profesión, me considero una persona afortunada, pues he tenido la posibilidad de combinar tres pilares en los que creo firmemente: investigación, innovación y docencia. Por un lado, la investigación lleva a la innovación, y a transferir soluciones a la industria y, a su vez, la innovación y la transferencia generan nuevos problemas de investigación a los que los investigadores debemos dar respuesta. Pero esto solo no sería universidad. Por ello, desde el principio, traté de integrar investigación, innovación y docencia en el campo de las Ciencias de la Computación e Inteligencia Artificial. Siempre he creído que de esta manera todas ellas se verían mutuamente beneficiadas.

“Debemos atraer a los investigadores jóvenes a la UPM” Entrevista a Asunción Gómez-Pérez

Acaba de recoger el Premio Nacional de Informática-Aritmel 2015, por sus sobresalientes aportaciones científicas en esta disciplina, un reconocimiento que Asunción Gómez-Pérez suma a otros como el Ada Byron a la mujer tecnóloga y el Premio de Investigación de la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), de ese mismo año. Es catedrática del Departamento de Inteligencia Artificial y la investigadora con mayor índice de impacto en sus publicaciones de esta universidad.

Los galardones valoran los 25 años de una carrera investigadora y profesional “intensa y centrada en la investigación, la innovación y la docencia”, los tres pilares que para ella deben ser la base de la universidad pública. Firme defensora de la presencia de los jóvenes investigadores en la universidad, del papel de la mujer en la ingeniería y del trabajo en equipo, la vicerrectora de Investigación, Innovación y Doctorado de la UPM, considera que estos premios son también de su grupo de investigación y su propia familia, sin los que no hubiera podido desarrollar su carrera.

Pregunta. Su implicación con el Grupo de Investigación de Ingeniería Ontológica de la UPM es máxima, pues lo creó desde cero. ¿Cuáles son sus líneas de trabajo? ¿En qué consiste su día a día?

Mobile Age, making senior citizens benefit from open government data

Mobile Age is a project that combines mobile technology and opened data to help the population of older persons of the whole Europe to design mobile applications focused on its needs and adapted to its characteristics. Diverse studies tell that this population will be 28% of the whole continent in 2020, therefore its active participation in the everyday life will be more and more necessary.

To obtain it, the project Mobile Age will create a system of participation that will allow senior citizens benefit from the production and the use of open data in its cities, following two clear targets: to explore and to implement models of access and use of the public services for old people across technologies of open data, and to develop a methodology for the creation of services for this sector of the population.

To do so, Mobile Age will develop four pilots in collaboration with public authorities across Europe: South Lakeland (UK); Bremen (Germany); Region of Central Macedonia (Greece); and Zaragoza (Spain). There, older persons themselves will decide which services they want to access, which kind of applications they would like to use, and which requirements in terms of accessibility and mobility they opt for. Each pilot site will work on a specific theme: social inclusion in Bremen; extending independent living in South Lakeland; a safe and accessible city for seniors in Zaragoza, and personal health information in Central Macedonia. Based on such decisions, the Mobile Age team will develop the requested applications and ask older persons to test them in real-life settings.

3rd Best Paper Award for OEG members at SEKE2012 conference

A paper by OEG members Filip Radulovic and Raúl García Castro, titled "Semantic Technology Recommendation Based on the Analytic Network Process"  has been awarded the 3rd Best Paper Award at the 24th International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (SEKE2012), which was held from the 1st to the 3rd of July in Redwood City, California, USA.

Abstract: Semantic technologies have become widely adopted in recent years, and choosing the right technologies for the problems that users face is often a difficult task. This paper presents an application of the Analytic Network Process for the recommendation of semantic technologies, which is based on a quality model for semantic technologies. Instead of relying on expert-based comparisons of alternatives, the comparisons in our framework depend on real evaluation results. Furthermore, the recommendations in our framework derive from user quality requirements, which leads to better recommendations tailored to users' needs. This paper also presents an algorithm for pairwise comparisons, which is based on user quality requirements and evaluation results.

Herramienta Global Monitoring System permite monitorizar los servicios de cloud computing

Observar el comportamiento de los sistemas informáticos que hacen posible la computación en la nube (cloud computing, en inglés). Es lo que permite una herramienta desarrollada por Jesús Montes Sánchez, un joven investigador y científico de la computación de la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), bajo la coordinación de los profesores María S. Pérez Hernández y Alberto Sánchez Campos, este último de la Universidad Rey Juan Carlos.

La herramienta, bautizada como Gmone (acrónimo de Global Monitoring System), monitoriza de manera eficiente y detallada un entorno cloud que comparten millones de personas, como los que proporcionan los gigantes de la red Google y Amazon. En las pruebas experimentales, esta herramienta ha mostrado su superioridad frente a las principales alternativas actuales, como Amazon Cloudwatch y el sistema de monitorización de Open Nebula, indica Montes.

Para conseguir los resultados que Gmone proporciona, el equipo de investigación se planteó en un principio profundizar en los problemas que la monitorización de los sistemas cloud tiene. Este campo de investigación, muy de moda en la actualidad, no contaba con estudios teóricos generales previos que permitieran enfrentarse al problema en su conjunto.

A new semantic model improves mobile telephone user experience

OEG's members have developed the mIO! ontology network. The aim of this network is to improve the mobile phone user experience, enabling the terminal to be used as a more reliable source of contextual information related to user tastes and preferences, social relations, services and environment.

The ontology network includes local information on the user (position, date), environment (temperature, luminosity), entertainment (theatre, sport), and social information (list of friends, agenda). It also includes information about the services that users can produce and/or consume (availability, price), as well as on the devices they use (battery, cover).

The OGSA-DAI project have released version 4.1 of its software

OGSA-DAI is a customisable framework for the management of distributed data resources - whether these be databases, files or other types of data - via web services. OGSA-DAI provides a workflow engine for the execution of data access, update, transformation, federation, processing and delivery scenarios. It also provides a powerful distributed query processor allowing SQL queries to be targeted across distributed databases.

Among other new features OGSA-DAI 4.1 now supports RDF data resources which allow querying of Jena SDB databases and SPARQL endpoints using SPARQL, developed by Carlos Buil-Aranda, from the Ontology Engineering Group.

Carlos Buil developes the SPARQL-DQP system

We announce that Carlos Buil, member of the OEG, has developed the SPARQL-DQP system. This system implements the SPARQL 1.1 Federated Query extension, by extending the OGSA-DAI/DQP system. The optimisation of these federated queries is done in SPARQL-DQP by identifying well-designed patterns in queries. Using such patterns it is possible to apply rewriting rules to federated SPARQL queries and improve the execution time of the queries.

The code and an online demo will be soon available.
