Digital Society

digital_society_icon.png

 

This is a hot topic for our research group and we should lead this disruptive area in Catalonia and across Europe. We will spread on-line and e-research along institutions, markets, commerce, education. We will promote digital society, its access and use, as a core matter. It specially includes dissemination about hot topics like artificial intelligence, cognitive paradigms and robotics in the society. We definitively want lead this disruption in Catalonia. Smart Economy, Business and Smart Cities are closely related application areas where we are very active: customers segmentation, sales forecasting, fraud detection.
