This multidisciplinary research group (GICAP) at the University of Burgos is interested on research related to the field of Artificial Intelligence to solve real-life problems. More specifically we are working on connectionist (neural) models, data mining and knowledge extraction, projection methods and dimension reduction and visualization techniques.

These techniques have been applied to different and interesting areas such as Knowledge Management, Chemistry, Physics, and Civil Engineering, Industrial Problems and so on.
