IDAL member Prof. José D. Martín alongside Prof. Paulo J. G. Lisboa from Liverpool John Moores University and Dr. Alfredo Vellido from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya are organizing a special session for the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks, to be held virtually from 18th to 22nd July 2021. The title of the special session is “Transparent and Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) for Health”. The deadline for paper submission is 15th January.

IDAL has presented a virtual conference on Data Science and its impact on Small and Medium Enterprise (SME). The talk was fostered by enterprise association FECAP. The slides and material used in the conference can be downloaded in the following links:
IDAL member Dr. Emilio Soria-Olivas will participate next 13th of November on a Symposium on Moral Neuroeducation in AI times organised by the Philosophy Department of the University of Valencia. Dr. Emilio Soria-Olivas will discuss about “Data and Artificial Intelligence: 2.0 Society”.
Dr. Emilio Soria-Olivas will present the AI challenges on Health management in a workshop hosted by ESSALUD (Empresas y sanitarios innovando por la salud) next 29th October at the Lluis Alcanyís Hospital in Xàtiva.
The workshop is focused on applications of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence on regional Hospitals, and it is aimed at health professionals and innovative companies.
Dr. Ian H. Jarman, lecturer at the Department of Applied Mathematics of the Liverpool John Moores University is giving a seminar on the use of data science, machine learning and visualization tools as well as its application to clinical data, with particular emphasis on Public Health. Dr. Jarman has a vast experience in the field, both from an academic point of view and also from a more clinical approach, as he was in charge of the Center for Public Health of Liverpool (Merseyside, North-West), belonging to the National Health Service network, United Kingdom. The seminar is taking place the dates 14th, 15th and 16th April, from 9am to 2pm.
The past 26th of June, IDAL organized a successful conference on the current situation of the Artificial Intelligence, sponsored by Balearia. The session had 4 panels of discussion and a conference, which was the starting point of the Chair Universidad-Empresa of the company Balearia, in line with research in the field of artificial intelligence. Some of the companies involved were Bolsas y Mercados Españoles (BME), Capgemeni, CEPSA, Telefónica and Orange.
On May 15, the research group IDAL and the BDSLAb from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) presented the results of a collaboration project on the optimisation of the response to 112 Emergency calls. The presentation shown that natural language processing can improve the functioning of the system in terms of cost, quality of life of the patient and optimisation of resources. On the other hand, the advantages of using probabilistic graphical models in this type of problems were highlighted, as they are easy to adjust and retrain; they are self-explanatory (as opposed to other black-box approaches) and establish causal relationships between variables that can be modified by the expert.
