The BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca continues to expand its research team and to add team members in areas such as web development, traceability, cybersecurity and blockchain. This time, the artificial intelligence team has grown so that it can continue to make progress on the group’s national and international projects.
Sarai Cobas is a fourth year student of the Computer Engineering Degree at the University of Salamanca. After submitting her work a few months ago as part of her curricular internship at BISITE, she is now doing so as a research intern. Particularly interested in the evolution of AI in recent years, she wants to “continue learning about its different branches” and will be part of the IA4birds project developed by AIR Institute together with the Biodiversity Foundation of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge. IA4Birds is a platform based on artificial intelligence which, using audiovisual devices, monitors bird populations to prevent threats and risks and to decide whether or not a particular site is suitable for the construction of a wind farm, thus safeguarding biodiversity.
The second addition is Lucía Rodríguez, who is currently doing her undergraduate internship in Statistics at the BISITE Research Group. In addition to her undergraduate training, she completed a course on Artificial Intelligence offered by the University of Salamanca, which is ideal for combining her mathematical and statistical knowledge with AI skills and applying them to BISITE’s projects. This is the case of Ethical News, which aims to prevent disinformation by detecting fake news through the design of cognitive computing and deep learning algorithms.
Welcome girls and thank you for joining us in the research and development of our projects. If you would also like to learn about innovative technologies that allow you to seek employment in booming sectors, you can enrol in the Master’s Degree in Digital Animation, the Master’s Degree in Digital Transformation, the Master’s Degree in Lifelong Learning in ICT Resources in the Teaching-Learning Process or other courses on topics such as data analysis, programming, robotics or neural networks.
