OSCAR LUACES RODRIGUEZ
Brief CV:My career started in the private sector as a software developer as well as making installation and maintenance works. It was in 1995 when I joined the academic life, working as an associate at the School of Informatics at the Pontifical University "Comillas" of Salamanca during one academic year teacher. In 1996 I joined the University of Oviedo and started my research career. In 1998 I joined the Center for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Oviedo, being Honorary Secretary since 2001. In 1999 I presented my doctoral thesis, "A learning system of explicit rules by generalizing instances", supervised by Professor Antonio Bahamonde. It was a research work in the field of machine learning, in which I have been working since then as a member of the research group in Machine Learning (MLGROUP). The lines of research in which I have been working include classification, regression, kernel methods, selection of features, multi-label classification, and preference learning. Some of the work carried out by the research group has been applied in such diverse fields as medicine, genetics, quality assessment of food or education.I have participated in projects financed by public funds and contracts with private companies. The publications derived from such research have been published in relevant conferences as ICML, NIPS, ECML, IJCAI and JCR journals in the first or second quartile, such as Pattern Recognition, Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Information Sciences among others.At present my research focuses on learning preferences through matrix factorization techniques for application to large volumes of data. The most recent works in this direction are related to obtaining consensus rankings in the context of the peer review (peer-assessment) of open response questions in massive open online courses.
