Short Biography

Jaime Duque Domingo holds a PhD in Systems and Control Engineering from the UNED (2018), a Master’s Degree in Research in Software Engineering and Computer Systems from the UNED (2014) and a Master of Education (Mathematics) from the University Isabel I of Castilla (2018). He obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Valladolid (2011) and a Technical Engineering Degree in Computer Engineering from the same university in 2000. He obtained the qualification of Cum Laude in the defence of his doctorate and has obtained five awards in his research career: INFAIMON Prize 2015 and 2018, awarded to the best paper on computer vision presented at the Jornadas Nacionales de Automática (Bilbao, 2015) and (Badajoz, 2018), IARIA Prize, to the best paper presented at the ICWMC congress (Nice, France, 2017), UNED Extraordinary PhD Prize, awarded in November 2020 and the only prize awarded in the School of Computer Science in that course, and Innovadores 2022 Prize, awarded by Iberdrola and the newspaper El Mundo to the best university research project. For 18 years he has worked on the development of complex IT projects for the private sector, both in Spain and abroad. He has carried out projects in the insurance/banking field (Seguros Caja Duero), in the field of governmental applications (French Social Security through ATOS IT), European Commission (working in the IT Department of the Commission in Brussels – DIGIT), in the automotive sector (Renault, Valladolid) or projects of online sales applications (MachinePoint). In recent years, he has focused on the academic world, obtaining his PhD, participating in several national and international conferences, publishing several papers and teaching at universities. He has participated in three research projects, within the UNED, the University of Valladolid and CARTIF. He has also published the book «Visión Artificial mediante Aprendizaje Automático con Tensorflow y Pytorch» in the RAMA publishing house, 14 articles in SCI-JCR indexed journals, in the first and second quartile, and 14 articles in national and international conferences. His field of activity focuses on artificial vision and robotics, specialising in deep learning techniques, social and cognitive robotics, and positioning systems. As a researcher, he has worked at the University of Valladolid and at the CARTIF Technology Centre. He has also been a visiting professor at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh (USA). In relation to university teaching, he has been a professor at the University of Valladolid and at the European University Miguel de Cervantes (UEMC), teaching subjects such as «Fundamentals of Computer Science», «Computer Vision», «Computer Consulting», «Machine Learning Tools», «Fundamentals of Automatics» or «Information Systems». He is currently Assistant Professor at the Department of Systems Engineering and Automatics of the University of Valladolid. He is accredited as «Profesor Contratado Doctor» by ACSUCYL and ANECA.
