This project works in applied research in different areas of Computer Science, with a bias in the development of computational artifacts. In particular, the research carried out in this project appropriates techniques, approaches and methods of Data Science for the development of such artifacts. The treatment of the large volumes of data generated by the artifacts produced in this project are inputs for the analysis, interpretation, or even prediction of behaviors. Although it presents itself with a generalist character, most of the research is focused on supporting teaching, building intelligent multimedia environments and decision making on the Internet of Things (IoT).
In the context of teaching support, we seek to build a cognitive and playful environment for fixing knowledge, through the development of artifacts that enable an increase in productivity in the teaching-learning relationship. Such artifacts aim not only to verify learning, but also to enable an environment that values the students’ experience and experience, working with aspects of their worldview. The main multidisciplinary instrument for this development is robotics, which brings together knowledge of electronics, automation, computer science, mathematics, semiotics and cognitive knowledge. Thus, tools based on artificial intelligence and robotics are developed for teaching and research. Such tools are analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively, in order to measure the adherence of the tools developed with the educational and social aspects.
In intelligent multimedia environments, the aim is to create systems, embedded or not, that allow the execution of innovative applications with a focus on synchronization between traditional media objects, sensory stimuli and multimodal interaction. Data science permeates the construction of these systems, providing a basis for the interpretation of data from sensors, the detection of multimodal interaction, the perception of the user’s state, as well as the use of traditional media objects with a differentiated approach. Still, traditional multimedia concepts are used to create authoring models and languages in order to specify intelligent environments and facilitate the specification of so-called mulsemedia applications (Multisensory Media), as well as the validation of their operation. Abstractions are proposed to represent the interpretations obtained with data science; the sharing of information between sensor devices and actuators; and the independence of such applications from the execution platform.
Finally, in the context of IoT, the aim is to develop systems that are capable of monitoring flows and behavior of individuals and vehicles, as well as identifying them automatically or that can perform the monitoring of climatic conditions, providing information that can be used as measures to contain environmental tragedies. Such systems must be efficient both in information traffic and in terms of energy autonomy, in addition to being evaluated in terms of security, validity and correctness. The projects developed by this area encompass the concepts of Smart Cities and Industry 4.0, among others.
