The AIR Institute Foundation (www.air-institute.org) is a private non-profit research organization, founded in 2018 with headquarters in Carbajosa de la Sagrada, Salamanca (Spain). Its mission is the promotion and development of scientific research in the field of computer science and artificial intelligence. The Foundation is formed by a team of multidisciplinary researchers who work to promote innovation in the field of information technology, computer science, artificial intelligence and information and communication technologies (ICT).
The AIR Institute has highly qualified personnel as a result of their participation in different national and international projects, providing valuable experience in many technologies, such as: the use of distributed ledger technologies and/or blockchain and cryptocurrencies, the use of virtual organizations for the design of social computing systems, fog/edge computing mechanisms, development of applications and different types of Cloud platforms, use of natural language processing (NLP) techniques and information extraction, sentiment analysis and other mechanisms for the conceptualization of data, deep learning systems, development of intelligent algorithms for different purposes (e.g. the development of machine learning capabilities, or the detection of patterns and relationships between data within Big Data systems), social machines for the development of Decision Support Systems (based on hybrid algorithms that combine case-based reasoning with mixtures of experts), etc.
The Foundation is active in a wide range of areas due to the outstanding knowledge and experience acquired by its members, especially in the areas of predictive maintenance systems, Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things, Bioinformatics, Smart Cities, Social Computing and Blockchain.
