Dr. Alfredo I. Hernández is a Research Director at the French National Institutes of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), in the commission “Technologies for Health, Therapeutics and Biotechnologies” and is assigned since 2001 to the Laboratory of Signal and Image Processing (LTSI), INSERM Unit 1099, located at the University of Rennes 1, in Rennes France. He has a background on Systems Engineering with an M.S. degree on biomedical electronics obtained in Venezuela. He received his Ph.D. degree in signal processing and telecommunications in 2000 and the Habilitation for Directing Research (HDR) in 2009, both from the University of Rennes 1, France, in the field of biomedical signal processing and physiological modelling. Dr. Hernández is the head of the INSERM research team “SEPIA” and co-leader of the MedTech axis of the Hospital-University Federation “TechSan”, devoted to technologies for health. His research is based on original methods combining multisource, high-dimensional data processing, mathematical modeling, analysis and parameter identification, mainly applied to the development of medical devices targeting the cardiorespiratory system. Dr. Hernández has developed a strong translational research activity, with longstanding partnerships with University Hospitals and the MedTech industry. He has participated as principal investigator or work-package leader in a number of regional, French, European or international projects. He has authored/co-authored more than 180 peer-reviewed publications and he is inventor of more than 50 patents, most of which have been transferred to or co-registered with MedTech companies.
Antoine Manzanera is a Professor of Computer Science at ENSTA ParisTech and Researcher in Computer Vision within the Autononous Systems and Robotics Laboratory. He graduated from Université Claude Bernard in Lyon (BSc Mathematics, 1991 and MSc Theoretical Computer Science, 1993), Télécom ParisTech (PhD Signal and Image Processing, 2000) and Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Habilitation Degree, 2012). For 18 years now he has taught Image Processing, Discrete Geometry, Mathematical Morphology, Computer Vision and Machine Learning in ENSTA, Université Paris Sorbonne, Université Paris Saclay, and in different Universities around the world. His Research interests extend across the broad range of mathematical, physical and technological foundations of Computer Vision, with a particular focus on Video Analysis, Image Representations, Scene Reconstruction, and Autonomous Visual Learning.
Juan Caicedo is a postdoctoral researcher at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where he investigates the use of deep learning to analyze microscopy images. Previous to this, he studied object detection problems in large scale image collections also using deep learning, at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. Juan obtained a PhD from the National University of Colombia and completed research internships in Google Research, Microsoft Research, and Queen Mary University of London as a grad student, working in problems related to large scale image classification, image enhancement, and medical image analysis. His research interest include computer vision, machine learning and computational biology.
Cèsar Ferri Ramírez is an associate professor in the Department of Computer Systems and Computation at the Universitat Politènica de València. Furthermore, he holds a longstanding research position in the DMIP team (a subgroup of ELP), which commenced in 1999. His research interest orients around Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Cèsar has published papers in leading journals and at top conferences as a coauthor on the aforementioned topics. Cèsar Ferri Ramírez obtained an MSc in Computer Science in 1998 at the Facultad de Informática at the Universitat Politècnica de València. His PhD was awarded by the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) in 2003, and focused on the topic of applying declarative languages for machine learning. Cèsar Ferri Ramírez is the Assistant Dean for University-Enterprise Relations of the School of Computer Science ETSINF, a position that he has held since 2009.
Jimeno is a research assistant and project manager at the Chair of Architecture and Building Systems at ETH Zurich, where he completed his Doctoral studies. The topic of his thesis was the analysis of energy efficiency strategies in community/district energy systems, with a focus on the integration of local energy sources. Based on the findings of his Doctoral thesis, he co-created the City Energy Analyst (CEA), an open-source tool for the analysis of the energy, carbon and financial benefits of urban design options and optimisation of urban energy systems. He has been involved in several other research projects and teaching activities on sustainable urban and building design in Europe and Latin-america. Starting 2016, he takes on the role of Senior Researcher and Project Coordinator of the Multi-Scale Energy Systems for Low-Carbon Cities Project at the Future Cities Laboratory.
