ESTYLF is the Spanish Conference for Fuzzy Logic, which I’ve been attending since 2012 (actually, that ESTYLF 2012 was the first conference I attended). This year the conference will be hosted by the University of Granada, and we are organising a special session on Soft Computing + Natural Language Generation, together with Daniel Sánchez and
Although this year I intend to focus mostly on preparing journal papers, I will be attending IPMU2018, which is one of the fuzzy logic-related conferences I hadn’t been to before. It will be held in Cádiz, one of my favourite cities for personal reasons.
I was interviewed this 21 Dec. in the Galician TV (TVG) to talk about my work on GALiWeather and in general, about Fuzzy Logic and Natural Language Generation. Actually, this was my first time on a TV set. Quite an interesting experience! Here’s a link to the video (it’s in Galician and Spanish): http://www.crtvg.es/informativos/alejandro-ramos-cientifico-galego-3587077
Last Friday I visited the ARG-tech Centre at the University of Dundee to give a talk about how metrics and visualizations from argumentation analysis could be complemented with natural language generation. Thanks a lot to Martín Pereira, for arranging the meeting and contributing to the ideas that were shown and discussed during the presentation, which
I have uploaded a new paper to arxiv.org, made in collaboration with Martín Pereira. This one’s a discussion paper on how fuzzy sets can contribute to help data-to-text systems in the modeling of vagueness and uncertainty. We have also sent it to a peer-reviewed journal, in the hopes that it gets accepted.
This award was the first I knew I would receive, back in May. This Monday, 23rd October, I attended the ceremony celebrated in the Fundación BBVA, in Madrid, where the award ceremony took place. I was among the six young researchers that were awarded this prize. It was a beautiful and well-organized ceremony and I
Last Friday I attended the XII Noite Galega das Telecomunicacións, where I received an award for the Best PhD applied to the IT sector in Galicia. I would like to thank the Asociación de Enxeñeiros de Telecomunicación de Galicia and Gradiant for the prize.
A few weeks ago I attended the EUSFLAT 17 conference to present a paper related to the D2T system we have been developing at the CiTIUS in collaboration with Ozona Consulting SL. I also had the honor of receiving the Best PhD Thesis Award 2016, granted by the EUSFLAT Society.
