Work done and future research lines

During the last ten years I started to work with artificial intelligence techniques, at the first time I learned how to represent knowledge so I used Machine Learning strategies, since I presented my project thesis I started to research in Knowledge Management from the social point of view, so I reviewed works like:

  • Fritz Machlup, “The production and distribution of Knowledge in the United States” 1972
  • Peter Druker, “The Post-Capitalist Society ”, 1993 [1]
  • Yoneji Masuda, “The Information Society as Post-Industrial Society”, 1981
  • NONAKA Ikujiro, TAKEUCHI, Hirotaka “La organización creadora de conocimiento. Cómo las compañías japonesas crean la dinámica de la innovación”, 1999.
  • Gibbons, Michael, Limoges, Camille;Nowotny, Helga; Schwartzman, Simon; Scott, Peter; Trow, Martin. “The new production of knowledge;The dynamics of science and research in contemporary societies”. 1994.
  • Thomas Kuhn, “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions”, University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1962 y 1969

As a result we published a video called “Ciudad del conocimiento o de la información” [2] and I presented several conferences related with subjects as Knowledge Based Economies [4], new paradigm: information vs. knowledge [5] and also we have several publications:

  • E-commerce web-based application, semantic knowledge applied to small and medium business (SMBs), Javier Gramajo-López, Willy Peitzner Rosal, October 2009, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • ITC sector business incubator: Strategic plan, based on Israel´s success cases, תכנית ליישום אסטרטגיה עסקית מדגרה בתחום טכנולוגיות המידע והתקשורת, ניתוח מקרים של הצלחה בישראל, Javier Gramajo-López, Isaac Sultan Mejía, October 2009, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Sak´a Project: Web 2.0 and Semantic knowledge based learning assistant tool, Javier Gramajo-López, Luis Antonio Pusey Alvarado, Johan Steve Cristales Mendizábal, Cesar Andrés García Roldán, July 2009, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Transition of the third sector towards the knowledge management through ICTs: Strategic and operational planning, Javier Gramajo-López, María Wualeska Alvarez Bonilla, July 2009, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Logistics strategy through continuous improvement quality model-based for knowledge management processes implementation applied to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) using ICTs, Javier Gramajo-López, Salomón Herrera Acajabón, June 2009, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Ubiquity of collaborative learning, the technology as a tool for social semantic learning, Javier Gramajo-López, Huber Raúl Flores Macario, Nov 2008, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Interface offices for Industry, Academy and State applied to ICT sectors (Knowledge Based Economies), Javier Gramajo-López, Sergio Gerardo Cifuentes Girón, Mirna Ivonne Aldana Larrazabal , Ana Luisa Chutan Sosa Nov 2008, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Web-based indexing tool using a domain Ontology applied to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), Javier Gramajo-López, Juan Pablo Caballeros Torres, May 2008, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Organizational Semantic Knowledge Management tool applied to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), Javier Gramajo-López, Maria Elizabeth Aldana Diaz, April 2008, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Genetic algorithms applied to process of resources assignment, Javier Gramajo-López, Mildred Madaí Caballeros Morales, April 2008, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Economic activities and product domain Ontology applied to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), Javier Gramajo-López, David Armando Chang Ovando, July 2007, Engineering Faculty, USAC.
  • Prediction using Genetic Algorithms, Javier Gramajo-López, Samuel David Orozco y Orozco, July 2007, Engineering Faculty, USAC.

The relationships between science, technology and the economy in the Americas, is an interesting subject of study. I have these possible ideas to develop:

Semantic knowledge model to understand the relations between:

  • Capital, work and knowledge in Brazil and Latin America
  • State, industry and academy in Brazil and Latin America.
  • Science, technology and the economy Brazil and Latin America.

Knowledge-based economies in Brazil and Latin America:

  • From information to knowledge in emerging economies.
  • Knowledge management through ICTs applied to small and medium business (SMBs)
  • Emerging economies and the capital relocation

As a current president of the Informatics and Information Technologies Commission (ITC sector), at the National Council of Science and Technology (CONCYT), and president of fundaTICs an R+D+i Association, in that position we proposed public policies and initiatives to promote the R+D+i work, the incorporation of researchers at universities and research institutes in Guatemala.

  • Promote the creation of the legal framework for the use and application of ICTs, and Free Software at public institutions
  • Promote the creation of the legal framework for the technology waste management and recycling
  • Encouraging the dissemination of the legal framework of the newly adopted Law of electronic signature
  • Promote the creation of the legal framework for incorporate and incentives to Guatemalan scientists at universities and research institutes

Acerca de Javier Gramajo

Javier is one the most active young scientists working in Guatemala. He develops his work as a full professor at the Faculty of Engineering of ‘Universidad San Carlos de Guatemala’ which is Guatemala’s national university. His work is related with artificial intelligence, he proposed several initiatives applied to generate tools that promote small business companies, using semantic web. Javier is the current president of the Informatics and Information Technologies (ITC sector) sub commission at the National Council of Science and Technology (CONCYT). In this position he proposed several initiatives such as: Law Initiative proposal to promote the research work and the incorporation of researchers at universities and research institutes in Guatemala. ‘Converciencia’, reunites all the national and international Guatemalan researchers, this annual conference has become during the past few years a big scenario to promote and develop scientific politics with the support of Guatemalan vice president, all the universities and part of the private sector and all the initiatives that Javier Gramajo-López has proposed have been a great contribution to the final purpose of this kind of conferences: Create the basis of new opportunities to researchers in Guatemala. With other Guatemalan researchers Javier Gramajo-López has also created a blog called ‘guateciencia’ (https://guateciencia.wordpress.com) that has been visited around 12,000 times, from 25 different countries. In that blog Guatemalan researchers show their ideas and work. Javier is an excellent and enthusiastic teacher who is very popular with students that he motivates to be hard working and creative. He has also appeared in several local publications as: newspapers, magazines and blogs, probably this partially shows his leadership in Guatemalan society. Working conditions for a scientist in Guatemala are very poor and each of the accomplishments that Javier has managed to achieve implies a great effort and motivation from his part. Having myself studied and worked in Guatemala I appreciate very much the effort that very few people, like Javier, are making to improve the level of science in the country by working inside the country despite all the difficulties typical of developing countries.

    Hello. Me ha encantado analizar su crónica. Me ha afinado una justificación muy atrayente, pese a que, en algunos puntos difiero un poco de tu opinión.
    He descubierto que tiene más revelaciones, ofrezco atrapar un intervalo para adivinarlas.
    Ten por cierto que escoltaré todas tus publicaciones.
    Te alabo por tu espacio web. Un devoto saludo.

    I do not like English. :p

    Sería bueno poner la revista donde se hicieron las publicaciones para tener la referencia a los artículos.
