Research

Dr. Sanchez-Pi research interests have broadened over the years and span topics that range from artificial intelligence, machine learning and data mining to ambient intelligence, ubiquitous computing and multi-agent systems. This is a consequence of the collaboration with several research groups from abroad. Some of them: Laboratory of Agent Modelling (LabMAg) at Science Faculty of University of Lisbon; School of Computer Science and Informatics at University College Dublin; ADDLabs at Computer Science Institute of Fluminense Federal University and GIAA at Computer Science Department of University Carlos III of Madrid. Her research profile for the last 10 years includes active research in the area of applied artificial intelligence. She has several publications in national and international peer reviewed conferences, books chapters and high standard international journals. Dr. Sanchez-Pi has working actively in research projects detailed bellow. She has also serve as registered European Commission expert evaluator for the 7th Framework Programme (7FP) and for research EU funded projects under Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP).

  • Research on Ambient Intelligence

    2014-2017

    Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is a recent paradigm emerging from Artificial Intelligence (AI), where computers are used as proactive tools assisting people with their day-to-day activities, making everyone’s life more comfortable. Another main concern of AmI originates from the human computer interaction domain and focuses on offering ways to interact with systems in a more natural way by means user friendly interfaces. This field is evolving quickly as can be witnessed by the emerging natural language and gesture based types of interaction. The inclusion of computational power and communication technologies in everyday objects is growing and their embedding into our environments should be as invisible as possible. In order for AmI to be successful, human interaction with computing power and embedded systems in the surroundings should be smooth and happen without people actually noticing it. The only awareness people should have arises from AmI: more safety, comfort and wellbeing, emerging in a natural and inherent way.
