News and Events 


Last February 8th, the GTI received the visit of Miguel Chavarrías Lapastora, Eduardo Juárez Martínez and César Sanz Álvaro, from the Research Center on Software Technologies and Multimedia Systems for Sustainability of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (CITSEM).

During their visit, the GTI carried out five demonstrations on several of the research lines they are currently working on:

- Subjective evaluation tests of immersive reality (Carlos Cortés).
- Biometric facial recognition system (Marcos de Rodrigo).
- Car detection system in extreme situations (Daniel Fuertes).
- System for detecting free parking spaces (Leyre Encío).
- Gesture recognition system (Enmin Zhong).

Finally, the planning of the ongoing ANÉMONA project, of which they are part of the consortium, was discussed.

The main objectives of the national research project ANEMONA are to analyse the behaviour, breeding conditions and environmental context of fish populations. To achieve this purpose, new artificial intelligence algorithms will be developed, using non-invasive sensors such as video cameras, to analyse and infer the behaviour of different fish species. Transfer learning methods for efficient cross-species data management, selection and reuse will also be investigated. Behavioural analysis and recognition will eventually be integrated into a prototype capable of making high-level decisions that can improve breeding conditions, welfare and environmental context. The project aligns with several of the European Commission's Sustainable Development Goals: Sustainable use and protection of water and marine resources, and Protection and restoration of biodiversity and ecosystems; and is expected to have a significant scientific, technical and socio-economic impact in these areas.
