Professional Development

In order to stay on the frontier of knowledge that marks the state of the art in the areas it develops, the Department of Artificial Intelligence has maintained an important tradition in terms of national and international collaboration throughout its history. Among the academic institutions with which there has been a greater degree of exchange and permanent relationship are:

  • Computing Department of the National Institute of Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (Mexico).
  • Faculty of Sciences of the UNAM (Mexico)
  • Systems Analysis and Architecture Laboratory (France)
  • Paris 6 Computer Lab of the Pierre et Marie Curie University (France)
  • Computing Laboratory of North Paris of the University of Paris 13 (France)
  • Graduate Studies Division of the Technological Institute of Orizaba (Mexico)
  • Faculty of Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Guanajuato (Mexico)
  • Faculty of Sciences of the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí (Mexico)
  • CIMAT, Guanajuato (Mexico)
  • ITESM, campus Estado de México.
  • CINVESTAV, Guadalajara unit (Mexico)
  • University of Valencia (Spain)
  • University of La Coruña (Spain)

There are also some linking projects, both with private and public entities, in the process of being formalized:

  • Veracruz State Cancer Center (CECAN)
  • Hospital «Miguel Dorantes Meza»
  • Steel Pipes of Mexico (TAMSA)
  • Secretary of Health and Assistance (SSA)
  • Secretary of Health and Assistance (SSA), Tele-Medicine Division.
  • Medical Tele-Diagnosis in Marginalized Areas (Dr. Gonzálo Berzaín Varela).

As a product of this collaboration network, there have been scientific publications, academic stays, organization of events, invitation of professors, external consultancies for thesis development, among others. The main result of these relationships is that the Department of Artificial Intelligence has achieved a significant level of mobility, both on the part of academics who come to this Department to make academic visits, give conferences, etc., and on the part of our staff who they go to other institutions in order to carry out specific work.

Among the tangible benefits that have been achieved so far, one can see, for example, the joint publications that have been made with academics from other institutions, and that allow us to see a clear activity of joint work and collaboration.

Regarding the reception of students from abroad, in recent years an increasing number of applications have been received, as well as accepted undergraduate students, to carry out a Summer of Scientific Research. This has had an important impact, both for the academics who have received students, having staff capable of assisting them in their research work, and for the students themselves, who have the opportunity to see up close what it means to do research in Mexico.
