He was the Head of the DET from its foundation to July 2004. In the last years, his research activities have dealt with transversal technologies that reach far beyond the purposes of any specific media. Thus, he has achieved relevant results in the area of personalization, recommendation, and adaptation of contents grounded on semantic technologies. In this field, he has participated in several pilot projects involved with the construction of personalized tourist services, with the recommendation of audiovisual contents, with personalized mobile services, with a platform of contextualized and nonintrusive advertising, with residential gateways for ambient intelligence, and with e-learning services, among others. Most recently, with the aim of combining the power of semantic reasoning technologies and the participation phenomena arising in the knowledge society, he is highly interested in gaining deeper knowledge in social network analysis and emergent semantics.
