The Centre for Biomedical Technology (CTB) was born under Technical University of Madrid (UPM) coverage to bring together outstanding groups of researchers and technologists, from a variety of biomedical and technological disciplines, in a stable environment of multidisciplinary research.
The research group coordinated by Prof. Ernestina Menasalvas covers the most relevant aspects of the development of a data mining projects with special emphasis on data preparation and integration and user interaction. With more than 15 years of experience in the field of data analysis, the researchers have dedicated their research to public and private funding projects in different domains from the biomedical field to the web social analysis to name but a few. The group has participated in the integration of data mining and data warehouse (Project financed by UPM), the design of a webhouse to mine web search results (R&D project with Holos and UPM) and the definition of a methodology to develop data mining projects (project of Ministry of Science); the group currently leads a project for semi-autonomous mining on ubiquitous devices in addition to a WP in an FP7 project called Resilience 2050 where their task is the mining of aviation related data. The group also participated in the KD-net (NoE FP5) and the KD-ubiq CA (FP6) where E. Menasalva co-chaired a working group.
