Artur Serrai2CAT deputy Director, AOTF Social Innovation & Digital Rights lead
Artur Serra Hurtado (1954), Alicante (Spain). Deputy Director of the Foundation i2cat Foundation, research and innovation centre about the Internet. PhD in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Barcelona, specialised in technological cultures. In 2006, launched the Cultural Ring, the first experimental network bandwidth for the cultural sector, connecting cultural centers in Catalonia and around the world, including Latin America through the Anilla Cultural Latinoamericana. Interested in the connection between the technology and the citizenry, since 1995 he developed some projects design and launched the first citizen networks in Spain and Europe (BCNet, Ravalnet, …) culminating them in the organisation of the First World Congress Citizens Network (Barcelona 2000). Currently, his line of research focuses on the design and implementation of living labs, new innovation structures open to the entire citizenry. In 2007 he launched the Citilab, the first European citizen lab.
Associate Director at the Computer Vision Center and Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science UAB
Fernando VilariñoAssociate Director at the Computer Vision Center and Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science UAB
I give lectures about Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Multimedia Systems. My research has been linked to different areas Artificial Intelligence, particularly in Computer Vision, with a special attention to Medical Imaging, fieldwork in which I have developed different projects together with paramount hospitals and companies. My work has been published in the main Journals and Conferences of the area and I have also contributed to a number of patents in the field. During the last years, I have participated in the design of different initiatives, both at local and international level, with the aim of developing novel paradigms of digital social innovation. I have led the implementation of a model of Living Lab that transforms Libraries into actual innovation arenas, by exploring how technology transforms the cultural experience of people. Through this initiative I have had the chance to participate in different events and invited talks related to the use of ICT in the context of Culture. My main expertise is centered around: - Models of Governance of Living Labs and 4-helix instruments. - Innovation in Libraries, Museums and the cultural field in general. - Artificial Intelligence and ICT tools. I have been awarded with the Spanish Government Ramon y Cajal Grant (2010), Google Academy Award for my research (2014), and the Barcelona Mobile Week Award for the @BrossaInedit project (2017). I coordinate the ENoLL Action-oriented Task Force on Social Impact of AI and Living Labs as Regulatory Learning Tools.
