I have had the privilege to take part in the International Conference onComputing and Network Communications (CoCoNet’20), organised by the Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), in Chennai, India, which is being held online from 14 to 17 October 2020. I submitted my paper as a “Guest Author”. Although it has been held online, we have been able to share our thoughts and discuss the research we are doing with leading researchers from around the world. Digitisation and excellent platforms specially developed for holding virtual congresses have really facilitated interaction with both large groups and small sessions or in a bilateral model.

During my presentation I shared with the attendees the results of research related to the “Efficient implementation of artificial intelligence models – DeepTech – in engineering solutions“, also presenting success stories related to biotechnology, smart cities, industry 4.0, economy, and others.

Our success is based on our experience and ability to choose the best algorithms, or rather, the best combinations of algorithms for the construction of an intelligent system. It comes down to engineering knowledge and expertise and the efficient use of tools such as deepint.net.

We have also analysed the importance of complementary technologies such as IoT and Blockchain in the development of intelligent systems. Likewise, we have demonstrated that tools such as Deep Intelligence allow us to create computer systems in an efficient and effective way.

It was an interesting session, at which we reflected on the evolution of intelligent computer systems and new technologies.
