Symposium 2019 – Artificial Intelligence

“The Future of Science in the 21st Century: Artificial Intelligence”

“Who could imagine early this century that Artificial Intelligence would go from being a research topic in universities and business laboratories to becoming a discipline that rapidly transforming the way we live, think, work and make research and innovation?

In this symposium, we will address the principles, concepts, main techniques and methods used in Artificial Intelligence and how they are presented and used in our world. We will explore the social, emotional, legal and ethical issues and implications AI has in our daily life.  The coexistence of human beings with systems and machines that think and act rationally, as humans do, has already begun and has no turning back.


I would like to finish now by gratefully thanking our gold sponsor ACCENTURE for its invaluable support. I would also like to thank the other sponsors such as: the Computer Science School and the Artificial Intelligence Department of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, as well as the projects GIANCE, Babelscape and Lindat.”
