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.

Digital transformation is driven primarily by Artificial Intelligence, ICT, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Finance and Marketing; all these technologies are the lines of research of our group, BISITE.
Qatar is all set for its World Cup matches. Its stadiums are nearly ready and so are the communication infrastructures and the metro. Many Spanish companies and many Spaniards are involved in these preparations.
