In an interview with the EFE Agency in Castilla y León I had the chance to speak out about the importance of Artificial Intelligence and the use of robots today. We have a lot of potential here in Spain and we must take advantage of it, seeing artificial intelligence not only as a catalyst for Industry 4.0, but as a means of positioning ourselves as the main producers in the robot sector which will be in high demand in the coming years.

In addition to production, we also have a high percentage of qualified professionals for the design and maintenance of these new allies, which contrary to what is believed, will generate many sources of employment through disruptive technologies.

The European Union’s plan for 2020 is to establish the position of the main countries in innovation and new technologies, and in Spain we have everything we need to do so.

I leave you with a link to the interview, hope you like it.
