This week the “International Conference on Mechanical and Electronics Engineering (ICMEE) 2022″, co-sponsored by IEEE and Xi’an Technological University, China. An event that brings together leading researchers, engineers and scientists in the fields of theoretical, experimental and applied mechanical and electronic engineering from 21 to 23 November. Juan Manuel Corchado, director of the BISITE Research Group and president of AIR Institute has been invited to give a lecture and share his knowledge and experience with the attendees.

During the talk entitled “Intelligence to accelerate the engineering revolution”, Corchado explained the importance of Artificial Intelligence in recent years. The need for progress, the growing processing capacity and the low cost of the cloud have facilitated the development of new and powerful algorithms. The efficiency of these algorithms in processing Big Data, Deep Learning and Convolutional Networks is transforming the way we work and is opening up new horizons. Thanks to them, we can now analyse data and obtain unimaginable solutions to current problems.

He also presented the evolution of intelligent computing systems. In addition, Corchado discussed the advantages of combining information and knowledge to solve complex problems and highlighted the importance of complementary technologies such as IoT and Blockchain in the development of intelligent systems. Tools such as Deep Intelligence allow to create computer systems efficiently and effectively.

Corchado concluded by emphasising the importance of “Smart” infrastructures, which need to incorporate all the value-added resources to be able to offer useful services to society, while reducing costs, guaranteeing reliability and improving the quality of life of the citizens.
