Ibai Laña

PhD

Ibai Laña (PhD in Artificial Intelligence) lives in Bilbao and works at Tecnalia as a Data Analyst. He received his B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Deusto University, Spain, in 2006, the M.Sc. degree in Advanced Artificial Intelligence from UNED, Spain, in 2014, and the PhD in Artificial Inteligence from UPV/EHU in 2018. He is currently a senior researcher at TECNALIA (Spain). His research interests fall within the intersection of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), machine learning, traffic data analysis and data science. He has dealt with urban traffic forecasting problems, where he has applied machine learning models and evolutionary algorithms to obtain longer term and more accurate predictions. He also has interest in other traffic related challenges, such as origin-destination matrix estimation or point of interest and trajectory detection. Working with large volumes of data, like traffic flow measurements or phone call detail records, has lead him to have a good command of big data processing tools and noSQL databases. He has also been a visiting scholar at the Knowledge Engineering and Discovery Research Institute (KEDRI) of the Auckland University of Technology (AUT).
