Presentation
Currently, the development of automated systems is reconfiguring industrial and social processes. Thus, advances in artificial intelligence such as those developed by companies such as Google or 18M, are changing the way to perform business administration and management, educate or produce new products. On the other hand, the development of service robotics and computer systems and their interaction with people is making a strong contribution to improving people's quality of life and transforming urban environments.
In Ecuador, national policies are aimed at strengthening sectors that have been called strategic sectors. One of these sectors is the productive sector, for which the so-called "transformation of the productive matrix" has been set in motion, which mainly demands an increase in the productivity of industries and diversification of production with a high component of national added value. In order to achieve these objectives, it has become indispensable to
the incorporation of automatic systems that make it possible to innovate and transform traditional systems. Thus, this process evokes a reciprocal interaction between the university and the productive sector with the aim of transferring new scientific developments.
On the other hand, sectors traditionally linked to social sciences are benefiting from the development of automatic systems. For example, projects such as Smart
Cities are working to reconfigure urban areas and rethink the way in which people relate to cities in terms of energy, safety and the use of public spaces. In this field, the research and development of new interaction techniques and technologies are essential to contribute to the development of an urban symbiosis.
Another sector strongly impacted by automatic systems is education. Stanford University, for example, believes that in the coming years universities will have to be reconfigured due to the increasing presence of autonomous learning systems. Here, the development of artificial intelligence has been one of the fundamental pillars for creating systems that adapt to each student and generate personalized content.
Considering that the Salesian Polytechnic University, through the careers in Electronic and Electrical Engineering and the Master's program in Industrial Control and Automation, offers society professional profiles that promote the development of automatic systems, and that, for several years now, research has been carried out in industrial automation systems through different teachers and research groups, it is proposed to create the GROUP OF
RESEARCH IN INTERACTION, ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATIC TlCA (GIIRA).

Currently, the development of automated systems is reconfiguring industrial and social processes. Thus, advances in artificial intelligence such as those developed by companies such as Google or IBM, are changing the way to perform business administration and management, to educate or produce new products. On the other hand, the development of service robotics and computer systems and their interaction with people is making a strong contribution to improving people's quality of life and transforming urban environments. In order to respond to these new scientific-technological challenges, the Research Group on Interaction, Robotics and Automation (GIIRA) has been set up, where we aspire to develop scientific-technological tools with which the fields of: human-machine interaction, robotics and artificial intelligence can be covered.
