About the Author

This system has been developed as a Master's Thesis by Manuel Espina Álvarez, student of Computer Science Technical Engineering at the Universidad de Oviedo.


Many algorithms and other stuff implemented in this system (like HPI [Hierarchical Prototype Induction], HPIW [HPI with Weighting], and the Mass Assignment Theory) are based, among others, in the following papers:
