Doctoral stay at KEDRI Research Institute

Two of our PhD candidates, Jesús L. Lobo and Ibai Laña, are going to spend the next six months at the Knowledge Engineering & Discovery Research Institute in Auckland University of Technology (AUT), in New Zealand. KEDRI is a high profile research institute in the area of information and knowledge engineering specialized in areas like Neurocomputation, Bioinformatics, Pattern recognition or Data mining and decision support systems. Aligned with this research areas, our PhD candidates will take further steps in their thesis works, about the detection and handling of concept drift in data streams,  and the prediction of road traffic variables with machine learning methods. Our JRL members also plan to find possible ways to combine their research lines.

With this international stay, a line of collaboration can be opened between KEDRI and JRL, while Jesús’ and Ibai’s research careers receive a substantial boost towards the attainment of their PhD.
