CONFERENCE SUMMARY

In recent years, social network theory and social network analysis (SNA) methods have been applied to different fields, including public health. SNA experts need to perform a series of steps to obtain the final metrics by which to draw their conclusions. These steps are time-consuming and, if done manually, can lead to a number of errors and misleading results. In this lecture we present a multi-domain knowledge model capable of automatically obtaining data and performing different social network analyses in different domains, without errors, guaranteeing the obtaining of valid conclusions similar to those reached by an SNA expert. In addition to this, different data mining techniques are shown that allow obtaining information from different social media for its subsequent pre-processing and integration in the creation of predictive models in a real use case on mental illnesses. After this, the results obtained from applying different natural language processing (NLP) techniques and the future of predictive models using semantic technologies will be mentioned.

BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Jose María Alvarez Rodríguez is Master of Computer Science (2007) and Bachelor of Computer Science (2005) by the University of Oviedo. In June 2008 he was rewarded with the “Best Final Degree Project in Computer Science” by the Official Association of Computer Engineers of Asturias (Spain) thanks to this project “Activation of concepts in ontologies through the Spreading Activation Technique”. From 2005 to 2010 he worked at the R&D Department in the Semantic Technologies area within CTIC Foundation, more specifically he has worked in projects related to semantic web services, rule based systems, cloud computing, search systems, linked data, etc. He has also participated in more than 30 research projects in different competitive programmes, At the same time he held a position as part-time Assistant Professor from 2008 to 2012 at the Department of Computer Science within the University of Oviedo. He also worked in the WESO Research Group (University of Oviedo) and holds a PhD about e-Procurement and linked data: MOLDEAS-“Methods On Linked Data for E-procurement Applying Semantics” supervised by the Prof. Dr. José Emilio Labra Gayo. He is the author of more than 60 publications and other research works in the main international venues and impact factor journals in which he also participates as reviewer, editorial board member and guest editor, e.g. Journal of Computers in Industry. In 2012, he was also rewarded with a HPC2-Europe Transnational Access Programme grant at SARA (Netherlands), hosted by the ISLA research group leaded by Prof. Marteen De Rijke at the University of Amsterdam. From January to August 2013 he held a position as Marie Curie Research Fellow (Experienced Researcher) at SEERC (Thessaloniki, Greece) within the RELATE-ITN FP7 project researching in “Quality Management in Service-based Systems and Cloud Applications“.

CONFERENCE SUMMARY

The Digitalization of Engineering (DE) is gaining momentum in the Systems and Software Engineering discipline with the aim of shifting the paradigm to design and operate cyber-physical systems like autonomous cars. This new engineering environment comprises multiple engineering disciplines, people, processes, methods and tools. Modeling, simulation, digital twins, etc. are becoming a cornerstone to improve the engineering practice and build a collaborative engineering environment. In this context, the use of semantics is critical to manage and exploit the implicit knowledge embedded in the system artifacts like requirements or models. In this talk, some of the main challenges in the Engineering 4.0 arena will be outlined through practical examples. Afterwards, use cases and real word examples of the application of semantics to the system life cycle are also presented to show how the engineering practice can be improved. Finally, some conclusions and future directions will be alsocommented.
