Introduction
With 10+ years of experience in ICT, working on reputable companies as experienced leader, developer and researcher in innovative technologies of Participative TV, Connected TV and Interactive TV/IPTV. Currently I'm studying for a Ph.D. on Information and Communication in Digital Platforms (ICPD) program held by Universities of Aveiro/Porto (Portugal). Lately I've been enjoying working with Python technologies for data science and machine learning as my Ph.D. work includes designing and developing a Context-Aware Recommender System of video contents delivered in an iTV platform.

This PhD research project aims to study, characterize, prototype and validate a Context Aware Recommender System of informative contents about Assistance Services of General Interest to Elderly, for later exhibition on an iTV platform. It aims to enhance the +TV4E project results by providing a more personalized approach to transmitted informative contents, and thus increase seniors’ autonomy, wellbeing and info-inclusion. In addition, this research aims to contribute to the growing body of work on Social Sciences by understanding how such CARS may increase seniors’ information and knowledge levels regarding services, activities and programs entrusted to the government. Hence, this study investigates the following research question: “How personalized selection and recommendation of informative contents about ASGIE, delivered through an iTV platform, may contribute to senior’s info-inclusion and wellbeing?”
Project
The target audience of +TV4E project is the Portuguese senior population and it consider their specific issues, needs and expectations in the use of public services, like the public social security and tax office, in order to develop an interactive television (iTV) platform which allows automatically the enrichment of television experience with the integration of contents about public and social services. For this platform an interactive application (running in set-top boxes) will be designed, implemented and validated in order to enrich the television experience with personalised informative contents considering the user’s profile (age, geographic localisation, clinical condition, etc.).
