About me

I'm José María! I'm part of the ISE research group, at the Instituto de Investigación en Informática de Albacete, a.k.a. I3A, where I'm currently working on Affective Computing.

In short words, I want to know how you are feeling while doing something so I can help you to do it, and maybe control your mind, you know, along those lines.

My projects

Tot System
Two-level multimodal system to detect emotions.

The Tot System, offered in the form of API, is a server-based system to aggregate data of several automatic emotion detectors.

Tau Prolog
A Prolog interpreter in JavaScript

Tau Prolog is a Prolog interpreter fully implemented in JavaScript. While most online interpreters are remote servers with an installed version of the interpreter which receive code, execute it and return the results, Tau Prolog is fully implemented on JavaScript and the code is analysed and parsed on the client side.

Juego serio pensado para la enseñanza de inglés a niños en edad de primaria.

El objetivo principal de este trabajo es desarrollar un prototipo de sistema afectivo cuyo comportamiento varíe según las emociones que muestre el usuario al interactuar con el sistema

A quote from a book I've read as a present! :D

No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home.
