Keynote 1 - Industrial Talk. Real Uses Cases for Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization in Different Sectors of the Industry, Rafael del Hoyo, Instituto Tecnológico de Aragón (ITAINNOVA).

Abstract: Currently Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a trending topic, however it has become a word used for many and diverse technologies. The personalization of content, social networks and the recommendation as part of the AI, are new tools that are already being used in multiple sectors of the industry. In this talk we will analyse in our experience different real uses cases in different industrial sectors, with specific examples where ITAINNOVA has participated.

Bio of the speaker: Rafael del Hoyo has a Bachelor in Physical Sciences and he is a Doctor in Artificial Intelligence by the University of Zaragoza. He previously taught subjects related to Artificial Intelligence and Big Data at the University of Zaragoza. Currently, he combines his work as responsible of the Big Data and Cognitive Group at ITAINNOVA with his teaching at the University of San Jorge, where he teaches Intelligent Systems, AI for videogames, and Information Systems. He is enthusiastic about teamwork and a technology lover, passionate about its possibilities and the opportunities that ICTs can offer to industrial companies. His main interests focus on how Big Data and artificial intelligence can be applied in companies, convinced that both technologies will completely revolutionize companies and generate new business models. He has participated in many European, national and private projects, as well as in national and international conferences in the field of ICT.

Keynote 2 - Research Talk. Trendy Practices and Tools in Ontological Engineering, María Poveda, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

Abstract: The increasing uptake of semantic technologies is giving the ontologies the opportunity to be treated as first-class citizens within software development projects. Together with the deserved visibility and attention that ontologies are getting, it comes the responsibility for ontology development teams to combine their activities with software development practices as seamless as possible. In this presentation some practices, tools and examples of new trends in ontological engineering will be provided.

Bio of the speaker: María Poveda-Villalón is a postdoctoral researcher at Ontology Engineering Group of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Her research activities focus on Ontological Engineering, Ontology Evaluation, Knowledge Representation and the Semantic Web. Previously she finished her studies in Computer Science (2009) by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and then she moved to study the Artificial Intelligence Research Master finished in 2010 in the same university. She has collaborated during research stays with Mondeca (París, France) in 2013, the Free University of Berlin in 2012 and the University of Liverpool in 2011. She has worked in the context of Spanish research projects as well as in European projects. Currently she is involved in the European project VICINITY (Open virtual neighbourhood network to connect IoT infrastructures and smart objects), an ETSI project to extend the SAREF ontology and is part of the W3C Web of Things Working Group. She has attended international conferences and co-organized the "4th Linked Data in Architecture and Construction Workshop (LDAC2016)", the "13th OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop and 5th OWL reasoner evaluation workshop" and the "Linked Energy Data Vocamp".
