Core competencies

The Valencian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (VRAIN), of the Universitat Politècnica de València is
composed of researchers belonging to 7 research groups: Enginyeria del Llenguatge i Reconeiximent de Formes
(ELiRF), Automata, Formal Languages and its Applications (ALFA), Extensions of Logic Programming (ELP), Machine
Learning and Language Processing (MLLP), Computer Technology and Artificial Intelligence (GTIIA) and
Multiparadigm Software Technology (MIST), and the Research Center on Software Production Methods (PROS) of the
Universitat Politècnica de València. With more than 30 years of experience in different lines of research in Artificial
Intelligence (AI), the groups that make up VRAIN are national and international references in AI research and their
results are supported by their extensive scientific production. In fact, with 110 researchers, VRAIN is one of the
largest AI research centers in Spain.

VRAINs research activity revolves around twelve main research areas: Natural Language Processing, Planning and
Reasoning, Software Verification and Analysis, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, Natural Computation,
Computational Logic and Automatic Reasoning, Intelligent Agents and Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence,
Artificial Intelligence, Privacy and Security, Information Systems Engineering, Software Engineering Testing,
Autonomic Computing, Self-Adaptation and Human Interaction, and Genomic Data Science and Genomic Information
Systems. These research areas are applied to the development of innovative applications in a large number of
strategic sectors such as health, agriculture, industry, privacy/security, autonomous robots, services and energy,
and environmental sustainability. These activities have been funded by more than 128 projects obtained through
competitive funding, mainly from the European Union, but also from the National Research Plan, the Valencian
Research Plan and Technology Transfer Projects. The total funding obtained since 2000 exceeds 18 million euros.
VRAIN researchers in these fields have chaired the main Artificial Intelligence conferences (ECAI, AAMAS, EUMAS,
IICAPS); and are board members of the main journals and organizations (EURAMAS, AEPIA). VRAIN has produced and
continues to produce important scientific publications (more than 2,000 papers since then), many of which have
been and are highly cited.
