Núria Agell elected to editorial board of Information Fusion

Her appointment recognises her research in the fields of data sciences and artificial intelligence

Núria Agell, Professor and Head of the Department of Operations, Innovation and Data Sciences at ESADE, has been elected to the editorial board of Information Fusion, one of the world’s leading journals in her area of research.

Her appointment recognises her research in the fields of data sciences and artificial intelligence, as well as her contributions at the helm of the ESADE Research Group on Knowledge Engineering (GREC).

“Information fusion involves combining different data sources with the ultimate goal of reducing redundancy and uncertainty in decisions,” says Prof. Agell. “Information fusion can be a powerful tool for leaders in real-world scenarios as it can help them improve decision-making by finding creative solutions to complex problems while reducing uncertainty.”

The peer-reviewed journal Information Fusion features the latest research developments in the field of multilevel, multi-classifier, and multi-process information fusion as well as decision systems. It publishes original research dealing with theoretical analyses as well as studies demonstrating their application to real-world problems.

The journal ranks among the top 10 journals worldwide in the category of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence and among the top 5 in the category of Computer Science, Theory & Methods.
