Luis Salamanca

Sr. Data Scientist
Academia
(Alumni)

Luis is originally from Spain, where he completed his bachelor studies on Electrical engineering, and my Ms.C. on signal theory and communications, both at the University of Seville. During his Ph.D. he started focusing on machine learning methods, more specifically message passing techniques for channel coding, and Bayesian methods for channel equalisation. He carried it out between the University of Seville and the University Carlos III in Madrid, also spending some time at the EPFL, Switzerland, and Bell Labs, USA, where he worked on advanced techniques for optical channel coding. When he completed his Ph.D. in 2013, he moved to the Luxembourg Center on Systems Biomedicine, where he switched his interest to neuroscience, neuroimaging, life sciences, etc., and the application of machine learning techniques to these fields. During his 4 and a half years there as a Postdoc, he worked on many different problems as data scientist, encompassing topics such as microscopy image analysis, neuroimaging, single cell gene expression analysis, etc. He joined the SDSC in April 2018.

SEMIRAMIS | A new approach to AI-Augmented architectural design

SEMIRAMIS | A new approach to AI-Augmented architectural design

As the world’s cities continue to grow, land is becoming increasingly scarce. However, open space is vital in urban areas. Semiramis is a new approach to AI-augmented architectural design, allowing designers a quick and easy selection of feasible performance values and a qualitative evaluation of the generated geometries.

A trip through Swiss politics and history

A trip through Swiss politics and history

Our aim is to create a database of who said what and when in both chambers of the Swiss parliament over the past 127 years. The Swiss Federal Archives recently carried out the digitalization of the proceedings of both the National Council and the Council of States. Thanks to these efforts, we can now openly access over 40,000 documents pertaining to all votes, speeches, laws, amendments to laws, etc., from 1891 to the present day.
