Esteban Guerrero

Computing science researcher

I am a computing scientist living in northern Sweden. My main interests are framed on Artificial Intelligence (AI) with a special focus on knowledge representation, and non-monotonic reasoning.

I investigate rational agents and multi-agents systems using formal argumentation theory. Part of my formal contributions have been evaluated/tested in different application domains: sports science, health-care, ambient intelligence projects.

I am currently a fellow post-doc researcher funded by Kempe organization at Computing Science department in Umea University (Sweden).

Research interests

Knowledge representation and non-monotonic reasoning

Formal argumentation theory and answer-set programming.

Multi-agents systems

Argument-based agents and practical reasoning for agents.

Human activity reasoning

Recognition, evaluation and support of complex human activities.

Artifial intelligence in sports

Intelligent coaching systems for sports (e.g. cross-country skiing).
