Forum mark

We are witnessing the transformation of the digital world driven by data, universal access to advanced analytical tools and dynamic development of fields like machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Using the Internet, mobile applications or the Internet of Things, we generate data at an unprecedented rate, and on the other hand, as clients and citizens, we expect new products, convenience and personalization. To meet these challenges, companies are now focusing on creating interactive bots, stand-alone machines or developing recommendation mechanisms that allows customers to look for new ways to build market advantages. With this emerges an analytical economy, in which people and machines must cooperate to accelerate development and increase competitiveness.
