Services offered

Our main tasks are to carry out applied research and technology transfer to companies and public administrations (in any field). The group has a technological offer focused on the fields of Business Intelligence Application Development, Data Warehouses and OLAP Applications, Big Data, Blockchain, Development of advanced Data Warehouses (eg, geographic, biomedical, continuous flow data warehouses data etc.), Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining and, analytics in the field of Internet of Things (IoT).

Another field where Big Data and Artificial Intelligence services are being offered is in the field of Electronic Health (eHealth): Data analytics and application of ICT to projects related to digital health. Environments are created for the management of the diagnosis and tele-rehabilitation (physical and cognitive) of patients through data from EEG, EDA, EMG, HR, ECG, BBT, genomics, etc. Within this field, Human-Computer Interaction services are offered: Analysis and improvement of human-computer integration. For this, techniques based on Post-WIMP interfaces are used (virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, wearables, ambient intelligence, emotional computing, eye-tracking, etc.), Awareness (knowledge provided to users of the environment around them and the users with whom to interact) and Gamification (application of techniques from the world of video games).

 

 

Results

En todos los campos mencionados con anterioridad, el grupo de investigación ha desarrollado sus propias metodologías y herramientas para aplicarlos directamente en al ámbito empresarial. Así, además de ofrecer el desarrollo de productos finales, realizamos una labor de asesoría y consultoría en la que colaboramos con la empresa y/o administración interesada y sus profesionales en el desarrollo de aplicaciones utilizando nuestras herramientas. En la parte final de este proceso, realizamos una formación adecuada de los profesionales de las empresas para la explotación óptima de los productos implantados. En concreto disponemos de métodos y herramientas propias para los siguientes campos: * Inteligencia de Negocio Especificación e implementación de los Indicadores Clave de Rendimiento (Key Performance Indicators, KPIs) y trazabilidad de los mismos. Diseño e implantación de Cuadros de Mando Integrales(CMI). Desarrollo de almacenes de datos y mineria de datos a partir de los requisitos del usuario final. Así, capturamos los requisitos básicos y necesidades de cuadros de mando del usuario final y, a través de nuestra herramienta y bajo un método basado en la transformación de modelos, se obtiene la implementación final del almacén de datos de forma automática. * Big Data Análisis de los requisitos de Big Data en función de los datos internos de la empresa para lograr una total integración entre datos internos y externos en Cuadros de Mando Integrales. Técnicas de visualización de Big Data. * Seguridad de almacenes de datos y portales Web. El grupo ha desarrollado un método para incorporar la seguridad desde etapas tempranas de desarrollo ya que, los datos históricos contenidos en el almacén de datos y, que posteriormente se acceden a través de diversas aplicaciones (interfaces de usuario, aplicaciones Web, etc.) suelen ser muy críticos y, se necesitan métodos que la implementen desde el principio. * Accesibilidad y Usabilidad de interfaces Web Trabajamos en que las aplicaciones Web se adhieran a determinados criterios de usabilidad y accesibilidad. De este modo, no sólo se aumenta la satisfacción del usuario, sino que se aumenta su productividad. Dentro de esta línea, tambien cubrimos aspectos de e-Government.
