Jorge's PhD research examines linguistic phenomena in one-to-one tutorial dialogue. His thesis project "Grounding Analogical Components in Tutorial Dialogue" investigates how tutors explain computer science concepts using analogies and communicative grounding strategies in one-to-one tutorial conversations. He has published scientific papers in the following venues: CHI Workshop on Speech Interface Interactions (Del-Bosque-Trevino et al., 2019) in Glasgow, Scotland; 24th Workshop on Semantics and Pragmatics of Dialogue (SEMDIAL / WatchDial) (Del-Bosque-Trevino et al., 2020) in Brandeis, USA; and Reasoning and Interaction (ReInAct) a conference organised by the Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability (CLASP) in Gothenburg, Sweden (Del-Bosque-Trevino et al., 2021)
In terms of public engagement, Jorge attended an invitation to Sonar+D in Barcelona, Spain, in 2019, where he imparted a Masterclass on Conversational AI and Speech Enabled Experiences. He also was invited to chair the Conversational AI Summit in London, England, in 2019. During the same year, Jorge organised and imparted a talk on “Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing and Dialogue Systems” in Monterrey, Mexico.
Regarding artistic outputs, in 2018, Jorge exhibited "Unspoken Word", an interactive installation that converts poetry into music at ARS Electronica in Linz Austria (2018).
