This talk provides an overview of my recent research work, both before and after transitioning from academia (UPV) to industry (Sciling). I have worked primarily on two broad research areas: Human-Computer Interaction and Machine Learning, although I also have collaborated with several researchers in other areas. This talk will showcase recent research work and real-world applications developed at Sciling, from recommender systems to responsive text summarization and eye tracking applications.
