Esteban Guerrero

Computing science researcher

I am a computing scientist living in northern Sweden. I am from Colombia. My work is framed on Artificial Intelligence (AI) area.

Main formal topics: software agents (practical reasoning), multi-agents systems (MAS), Non-monotonic reasoning (formal argumentation theory, answer-set programming) and knowledge representation (logic programming, ontologies, knowledge graphs)).

Main technical topics: MAS engineering, Ontology engineering, Machine Learning (AdaBoost, random decision forests/trees, reinforcement learning), Data science (multi-sensor acquisition and filtering)

Position: Researcher (forskare) at the  Department of Computing Science , Umeå University (Sweden).
