Artificial intelligence is no longer science fiction, although it is far from the robots we see in Hollywood movies. Currently, large companies have joined the challenge of integrating, in one way or another, artificial intelligence within their own business models.

Of all the applications of Big Data, insurance companies demand to exploit the value of their data to enhance their relationship with their customer, from the acquisition to loyalty.

In the case of Big Data, in addition to these same reasons, the banking and telecommunications sector…

Over the years, women have been acquiring more visibility in society and their professional role has been reinforced in technical disciplines, but nowadays it is necessary to reach a space of influence to achieve a real impact. According to the INE´s data, in Spain in the last scholar year, 50% of students enrolled in university degrees were women.
