"There are already numerous books on artificial intelligence and its social impact, but Gissel Velarde's book has two characteristics that make it valuable and different. The first is that it is based on some 300 references in its bibliography, which gives it a very remarkable scientific character. The second is that AI is presented from the point of view of a Bolivian woman, who has lived in several European countries, and with a multidisciplinary professional profile. Therefore the book, originally written in Spanish, conveys a diverse vision of AI that addresses issues such as the role of women, technology in remote places, and makes reference to Potosi, India, the arts, drawing on studies of diverse cultures and geographies."
-Emilia Gómez, AI and music researcher (Recognized as one of the most exemplary women in Europe for girls.)
"With a simple and precise language, the author talks about Artificial Intelligence (IA) and its sub areas -machine learning) and deep learning-, through practical examples, graphs and the collection of scientific studies on the subject along the years. Velarde goes through topics ranging from philosophy, creativity, consciousness, to of course, intelligence and education. All this, taking as a central axis AI and the impact it has had worldwide and in Latin America.", Dafne García, LadoBe. (Translation, original text in Spanish)
"'Artificial era' by Gissel Velarde represents a valuable contribution in the field of artificial intelligence and its repercussions on society, especially for Hispanics, because it is an accessible book, written in a clear and precise manner; also because scientific literature in this field is usually not available in Spanish.", eju.tv (Translation, original text in Spanish)

Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering
I am an independent researcher. In 2020, I was named: Notable Woman in the field of research by the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) and I was also selected internationally as one of 120 technologists by the Top Women Tech 2019 & 2020 summit in Brussels.
I have over 20 years of experience in engineering and computer science. I earned a Ph.D. in computer science and engineering from Aalborg University in Denmark in 2017, an institution recognized as the best university in Europe and fourth in the world in engineering according to the US News World Ranking and the MIT 2018 ranking. I obtained a master's degree in electronic systems and engineering management from the University of Applied Sciences of South Westphalia, Soest in Germany, thanks to a DAAD scholarship, and I hold a licenciatura's degree in systems engineering from the Bolivian Catholic University of La Paz, recognized as the third best university in Bolivia according to the Webometrics Ranking 2020.
I worked in industry and academia, and I have received several awards and recognition as an engineer, a computer scientist, and a pianist. I was a research member in the European Commission's project "Learning to Create", and I taught at Aalborg University, at the Bolivian Private University and at the Plurinational Conservatory of Music of Bolivia. I worked for Miebach Gmbh, Hansa Ltda, SONY Computer Science Laboratories, Moodagent, and Pricewaterhouse Coopers.
I have developed machine learning and deep learning algorithms for classification, structural analysis, pattern discovery, and recommendation systems. In my latest book, I analyze the impact of intelligent technologies during what I have called the "Artificial Era".
