Emergent and Evolvable Ports: How this concept might be for Latin American Ports
The port model prevailing in Latin America (LATAM) is the result of the major reforms of the decades of the 1990s and 2000s. It allowed for substantial achievements as regards the reduction of foreign trade port costs. Changes in the economy may have been influenced by improvements in port performance and operations; though the improvement in seaport management and technology in LATAM has not been quite as impressive as in other regions around the world. The economic environment in which ports operate daily generate expectations that must address not only the creation of better infrastructure and technology but also its adaptability to challenges in the global environmental landscape. Port authorities in the Port LATAM region must re-define appropriate strategies to specify relevant core businesses and competencies to position ports for sustainability. Built on competitive grounds and thus finding the proper context/conditions opportunities for cooperation, collaboration and coordination among ports will emerge into the development for long-term future success. However, shortcomings in reliable data and information exchange often hamper collaborations and partnerships among the initiatives. The challenge goes beyond information technologies because intelligent business processes must be embedded in suitable solutions as the key factor for port competitive advantage. The set of integrated tools supporting businesses and IT users in managing process execution is known as Business Process Intelligence (BPI). The use of computational intelligence tools and methods involving knowledge discovery and computer-aided strategic decision-making are also relatively new endeavours in the port domain.
Speaker: Dr. Ana X. Halabi Echeverry
Ana X. HALABI-ECHEVERRY is a researcher and data scientist currently focused on inter-port systems and adaptive, flexible and evolvable systems. She is Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science from Macquarie University, Australia. Master’s Degree in Hydrosystems from Pontifical Xavierian University, Colombia. Specialist in Organisational and Administrative Control Systems from Los Andes University Colombia. Industrial Engineer from Pontifical Xavierian University, Colombia. Associate of NextPort vCoE, a Scientific Association newly created to overcome research gaps that, in an ethical and sustainable way, addresses port data governance and management challenges in Latin America. It is expected that port-related communities increase in intelligence (also data transfer) for collaborative planning. Dr. HALABI-ECHEVERY is convinced of the several opportunities that seaports have in Latin America. Fifteen years of experience in academic and leadership positions within academia.
Dr. HALABI-ECHEVERRY has international recognition for her achievements in the target sector, publishing in academic peer-review journals such as Springer Special Editions, Taylor and Francis, Elsevier and IEEE Publications.

Local experiences applying Artificial Intelligence in Bioengineering: Myths and Reality
Undoubtedly, Artificial Intelligence (AI) takes on more and more prominence in processing data coming from practically all fields, to make them useful in decision support. But what do we exactly mean when we say "Artificial Intelligence"? Are the solutions suggested by AI available to anyone? When do we say that a system is "smart"? How “smart” are AI-based systems? What do we expect from AI in the near future? How do we evaluate if an “intelligent” system is robust and capable of generalizing what it has learned? Can AI generate fake biomedical Information? Progress is so overwhelming that it requires us to be aware of new ideas and approaches all the time. In addition, it demands powerful hardware, which becomes a limitation in many cases. In this talk, these questions and challenges are addressed, taking as a starting point some applications of AI methods in a bioengineering laboratory dedicated to the acquisition and processing of signals, medical images, and biomedical data in general.

Consensus Reaching Processes for Large Scale Group Decision Making: Theoretic and Software
Organizers: Rosa Mª Rodríguez Domínguez and Álvaro Labella Romero
University of Jaen, Spain
Consensus reaching processes (CRPs) provide solutions acceptable to all the experts participating in group decision problems, they are demanded in many real-life contexts. Given the variety of existing approaches to support CRPs, this seminar considers three main objectives. Firstly, it revises and introduces a taxonomy that provides an overview and categorization of some existing consensus models for group decision-making problems defined in a fuzzy context, taking into account the main features of each model. Secondly, it discusses the performance of classical CRP models within contexts with a large number of experts, such as e-marketplaces and social networks. Finally, the software AFRYCA that provides support for the CRPs, is introduced to show its features and how to apply different consensus models to deal with group decision-making problems
This seminar will focus on some new requirements to the solution of consensus-based group decision-making problems, such as
Consensus metrics for analysing performance of consensus reaching processes
Comprehensive minimum cost consensus reaching processes
Increasing the convergence of the CRPs keeping experts sovereign
Monitoring tools to evaluate easily the evolution of the consensus process
