Jose Luis Preza Diaz I work in the software industry since 1991. Areas of expertise include Analytics, BI, Software Sales, Semantics, ERP/SCM, Data Management, Repositories (Documents, Research Data), J2EE, Enterprise Architecture, WaveMaker, Research Data. I have worked with companies and customers of all sorts, from Global Companies to Small 1 Person shops, primarily in the Americas, Europe, and Africa.

I compose music and play guitar. I write columns in several media outlets, and also take some photos once in a while. I collaborate with the Cultural Integration Project from the Supermarket Chain Prosi.at in Vienna providing cooking lessons.

Currently, I work at the University of Vienna in the nation wide project e-Infrastructures Austria, a project regarding the management of research data. e-Infrastructures is a Horizon 2020 project, lead by the Library of the University of Vienna.

Life as a Street Kid

During my teen years, I spent several years of my life on the streets of el salvador, while the country was in full civil war. It was a very difficult time, but I managed to leave the streets when I was like 18 years old.

Music


I started to learn -on my own- to play guitar when I moved to Vienna in December 2001. Eventually, I started to make my own melodies.

IBM Watson

Watson and Jose Luis Preza Diaz I have successfully implemented Watson APIs within the Phaidra Analytics platform for real time information enrichment of digital objects stored in a repository. I am invited to Keynote this integration in an upcoming Metadata Conference in June here at the University of Vienna and probably in Semantics Leipzig in September this year. IBM has expressed interest on this work as well.

2 Articles I wrote about Watson (April 2016, LinkedIn):

CERN-THE Port

In June 2015, my application was approved to participate in "THE Port”, a humanitarian Hackathon in CERN Geneve, where we invented and designed a Solar Device Prototype for the developing world (theport.ch/home/the-port-2015-cern/).
