We all talk about neural networks. I think it would be nice to know what they really are. #StayAtHome ... › Introduction to neural networks
This post contains a presentation that I use to introduce the concept of Artificial Intelligence and neural networks to the general public. Read More ›

Our approach applying AI to find the best location of the bins in a city has been published in this high-impact journal. › Published our work about Smart Waste Management in the Waste Management journal
The research carried out about optimizing the garbage collection points' localization, and configuration provided competitive results. Waste Management journal has published our research work on this topic. Read More ›

Artificial Intelligence helps us to find the best location of the garbage collection points in the city. › Where to Locate Garbage Collection Points (Bins)?
We are researching about optimization problem of locating and configuring the garbage collection points. The main idea is to provide the best service to the city inhabitants while minimizing the costs. Some results have been already published. Read More ›

Smart City tools and Data Science have been applied to analyze the effects of Madrid Central, an environmental measure enforced in Spain. › What does science really say about Madrid Central?
