About

BIESA, Bio-inspired Expert Systems and Applications is a Laboratory inside the Interactive Technologies Institute / Larsys, Associated Laboratory, classified as Excellent since 2012, hosted by ARDITI, located at Tecnopólo in Madeira, Portugal.

This laboratory uses mostly Bio-inspired Expert Systems as a tool and found relevant applications and implementations in different areas such as Energy, Health, Sport and Electronics.

The laboratory has been in place since 2014 and within its work many students already graduate and several projects took place.
