Antonio Bahamonde is President of SCIE (Scientific Information Society of Spain). University professor in the area of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence of the University of Oviedo. He has a degree and a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Santiago de Compostela.
His research activity has focused on Machine Learning, mainly in applications to different fields such as livestock, food, health or bioinformatics. The applied techniques have varied over the years, but they have always had a strong formal character such as Support Vector Machines (SVM), matrix factorization algorithms or Deep Learning. At present, his interests are focused on the application of these techniques to problems that tackle the challenge of treating large volumes of data (Big Data). Specifically, problems that involve generating an order or ranking of some type of object. This is the case of modeling the preferences of consumers or users of a service that applies, for example, to Recommendation Systems, evaluation of open responses in massive open online courses (MOOCs).
