Javier del Ser
Javier del Ser (PhD) received his first PhD degree (cum laude) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Navarra (Spain) in 2006, and a second PhD degree (cum laude, extraordinary PhD prize) in Computational Intelligence from the University of Alcala (Spain) in 2013. He is currently a Research Professor in Artificial Intelligence and leading scientist of the OPTIMA (Optimization, Modeling and Analytics) research area at TECNALIA RESEARCH & INNOVATION, Spain. He is also an adjunct professor at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), an invited research fellow at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM), and a senior AI advisor at the technological startup SHERPA.AI. He is also the coordinator of the Joint Research Lab (http://jrlab.science) between TECNALIA, UPV/EHU and BCAM, and the director of the TECNALIA Chair in Artificial Intelligence implemented at the University of Granada (Spain). His research interests gravitate on the use of Artificial Intelligence methods for data mining and optimization for problems emerging in Intelligent Transportation Systems, Smart Mobility and Logistics, among others. He has published more than 280 scientific articles, co-supervised 10 Ph.D. theses, edited 7 books, co-authored 9 patents and participated/led more than 40 research projects. He is an Associate Editor of tier-one journals from areas related to Data Science Artificial Intelligence, such as Information Fusion, Swarm and Evolutionary Computation and Cognitive Computation, and has served as a Guest Editor in journals from the ITS field such as IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems and IEEE ITS Magazine. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, and a recipient of the Bizkaia Talent prize for his research career.
