She works in the field of materials and glass science, with a strong interest for image processing. She has co-organized two EuroScipy conferences, and she is part of the core development team of to scikit-image. She also teaches Scientific Python for various audiences.


Manuel Graña - The role of Python in the emerging open source economical ecology

Manuel Graña is the vice-president of the ACPySS as well as full-professor in the Computer Science Faculty of the University of the Basque Country. He has co-authored more than 150 scientific journal articles and has mentored 25 PhD theses. He is the director of the Computational Intelligence Group, a group specialized in Artificial Intelligence applied to computer vision. He mentored and directed projects on remote sensing, brain and medical images, natural image processing, social networks and robotics. His main interests are Lattice Computing, Boltzmann Machines and making improvised eclectic music videos on a sufficiently crazy and relaxed Youtube channel.

In his talk he will present his emerging point of view on the economical roles of different classes of actors in the open source software ecology.
