Among the speakers are Imaxin José Ramón Pichel Campos, who will delve into ‘NLP for the detection of hyperpartisanship. Possible applications for the business world,’ UDC Patricia Martín Rodilla, who will lead the session ‘Fundamentals of discourse analysis,’ Gaël Dias from UNICAEN, who will explore the field of “Advanced machine learning algorithms designed for social and humanistic research” and Renata Vieira from UEVORA, who will guide participants through the ‘Fundamentals of building ontologies to from texts.’ These training sessions are set to empower attendees with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the complexities of hybrid intelligence fundamentals. 

The program will also focus on developing essential skills such as data management, covering fair data management policies, data management plans, data sharing, open data, and data repositories.

We invite the public, researchers, and industry professionals to join us to explore cutting-edge developments in Hybrid Intelligence Foundations. For more information and registration details, visit the HYBRIDS Project website.

This event is ideal for professionals and researchers interested in Hybrid Intelligence and its applications. Whether you are an expert in machine learning (ML), symbolic strategies of knowledge formalization, or hybrid systems, this event offers valuable insights and training activities to deepen your understanding.

About the HYBRIDS project

The HYBRIDS project is supported by the Horizon Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (HE MSCA) and co-funded by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) HE funding guarantee. The project covers a range of topics related to disinformation, abusive language, and public discourse, including automatic characterization of micro-level structures in social media discourse, measuring the impact of political discourse on public opinion, identifying the stance of argumentative opinions, analyzing political propagation campaigns on social media, detecting hate speech against immigrants, identifying toxic bots on Twitter, detecting hyperpartisan political news, generating hybrid data for online harassment detection, claim verification for fact-checking, detecting harassment on social media, and cross-lingual claim detection for fact-checking.

Coordinated by the  Research Centre on Intelligent Technologies of the University of Santiago de Compostela (CiTIUS), it involves partner universities, leading research centres, non-profit organisations, and innovation companies across Europe: Université de Caen (France), Universidade da Coruña (Spain), Universidade de Évora (Portugal), Radboud Universiteit (the Netherlands), Queen Mary University of London (UK), Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (Spain), Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Italy), GESIS-Leibniz-Institut fur Sozialwissenschaften (Germany), Fondazione Openpolis ETS (Italy), Fundación Universidad Empresa Gallega (Spain), Factoria de software e multimedia S.L. (IMAXIN, Spain), Industrieanlagen Betriebsgesellschaft MBH (IABG, Germany), and Newtral (Spain).
