Short Curriculum

Emilio Serrano is a lecturer at the Department of Artificial Intelligence of the Technical University of Madrid. He holds a M.Sc. Degree in Computer Science and a Ph.D. degree with European mention and Extraordinary Ph.D. Award in Artificial Intelligence, both from the University of Murcia. He has also been a visiting researcher at the University of Edinburgh (12 months) and at the University of Oxford (4 months). His scientific production includes over 50 publications, highlighting 19 papers in the JCR (10 as leading author, 14 in Q1). In some of his last papers, he studies the use of machine learning and deep learning to enhance social services. He lectures Deep Learning and Data Mining among others; and, he has been principal investigator in two educational innovation projects in Data Science. He has also participated in a number of European and National funding programs such as the FP7 research projects: smartopendata, eurosentiment, and omelette.

Research interests

My research is focused on the field of Artificial Intelligence. Currently, I am very interested in:  machine learning and deep learning; intelligent environments and ambient intelligence; agent based social simulations and multi-agent systems; and, specially, the interaction among these fields to improve our quality life. I take pleasure in using these technologies to solve interesting, complex, interdisciplinary, and difficult problems where the traditional computation techniques are not effective.

During my PhD studies, I worked extensively on the analysis, design and development of interaction methods among agents into an artificial society. The importance of multi-agent systems is that these systems may be used to implement a great variety of complex systems such as cloud computing, the Semantic Web, ambient intelligence, or social simulations.
