Carlos M. Travieso-González received his MSc degree in Telecommunication Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain, in 1997, and his PhD degree at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC-Spain) in 2002. He is Full Professor of Signal Processing and Pattern Recognition and Head of the Signals and Communications Department at ULPGC, teaching signal processing and learning theory since 2001. His research includes biometrics, biomedical signals and images, data mining, classification systems, signal and image processing, machine learning, and environmental intelligence. He has researched in 51 international and Spanish research projects, some of them as head researcher. He is co-author of four books, co-editor of 24 proceedings books, guest editor for eight JCR-ISI international journals, and author of up to 24 book chapters. He has over 440 papers published in international journals and conferences (72 of them indexed on JCR–ISI-Web of Science). He has published seven patents in the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office. He has been supervisor of eight PhD theses (12 more are under supervision) and 130 masters theses. He is founder of the IEEE IWOBI conference series and president of its Steering Committee, the InnoEducaTIC conference series, and the APPIS conference series. He is an evaluator of project proposals for the European Union (H2020), Medical Research Council (MRC–UK), Spanish government (ANECA-Spain), Research National Agency (ANR-France), DAAD (Germany), Argentinian government, and Colombian institutions. He has been a reviewer in different indexed international journals (70) and conferences (220) since 2001. He has been a member of the IASTED Technical Committee on Image Processing since 2007 and a member of the IASTED Technical Committee on Artificial Intelligence and Expert Systems since 2011. He will be ACM-APPIS 2021 General Chair and IEEE-IWOBI 2020 and 2020, and was ACM-APPIS 2020 General Chair, IEEE-IWOBI 2019 General Chair, APPIS 2019 General Chair, IEEE-IWOBI 2018

Latest work with IntechOpen by Carlos M. Travieso-Gonzalez

Nowadays, the technological advances allow developing many applications on different fields. In this book Motion Tracking and Gesture Recognition, two important fields are shown. Motion tracking is observed by a hand-tracking system for surgical training, an approach based on detection of dangerous situation by the prediction of moving objects, an approach based on human motion detection results and preliminary environmental information to build a long-term context model to describe and predict human activities, and a review about multispeaker tracking on different modalities. On the other hand, gesture recognition is shown by a gait recognition approach using Kinect sensor, a study of different methodologies for studying gesture recognition on depth images, and a review about human action recognition and the details about a particular technique based on a sensor of visible range and with depth information.
