Last week I had the honour of giving a lecture at the First Iberian Forum organized by Rotary, which was attended by Rotary member clubs from Spain and Portugal and various public figures. Technology, artificial intelligence, sustainable development and global security were the focus of my presentation and, above all, the link between them and the objectives of Agenda 2030.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend the inaugural conference of the program 12 meses cuidándoT, an exciting initiative of the Institute of Biomedical Research of Salamanca (IBSAL), which aims to offer workshops, lectures and other activities to disseminate the research that is being conducted at the institute among the citizens.
This week we participated in the Qatar IT Conference, which focused on Smart Cities. Qatar is undergoing continuous urban transformation and is now preparing for the organization of the World Cup, which is going to take place very soon!
AI is changing the world, today we have learned more about the advances that are being made thanks to AI, from the CEO of Qatar Airways, Akbar Al Baker. This airline uses Artificial Intelligence to improve its operations and efficiency and to increase the number of customers.
Attending the “CYBER SECURITY WEEK 2019” has been a great experience for me. I have been able to work with international experts from different law enforcement agencies and top level research centres. At the event I have learned a great deal about advances in this field.
It has been a pleasure for me to present a key note at the 7th International Engineering Sciences and Technology Conference (IESTEC), held in Panama. I met with some of my former PhD students there, they now lead a research group and conduct outstanding projects at the Technological University of Panama.
