The Artificial Intelligence (AI) market is so important that, according to data from the consulting firm Gartner, it is expected to reach a value of $ 3.9 billion by the end of 2022.

In this context, NDS Cognitive Labs, a leading Mexican company in cognitive computing and Artificial Intelligence development, will participate in the AI Latin America SumMIT 2020, an event organized by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which will will take place from January 21 to 23 at its facilities in Boston, Massachusetts.

The director of NDS Cognitive Labs, Gustavo Parés, will be part of the panel Thinking about the future: The adoption of AI in Mexico, on January 21 at 1:30 p.m., which will discuss the future of the Artificial Intelligence in the country and the challenges that exist on the subject.

The Latin American Summit aims to understand the current state of AI in industrial and government sectors in Latin America, motivate key entities in the region to execute the initiatives developed, inspire the exchange of ideas to implement AI research projects and make public initiatives to assist in the design of policies in the area.

The event will bring together academics, experts and companies based in Latin America and the Caribbean, in order to identify opportunities and risks that the countries of the region may face as they begin to implement Artificial Intelligence in different sectors of society.

"The reason for holding this Summit is that there is very little support for this type of technology in the countries of the area, so we want it to be known what their importance is and the impact they are having and will have in the near future", indicates Doctor Omar Costilla, coordinator of the event.

Among the topics of the panels and conferences that will take place at the AI Latin America SumMIT 2020, stand out how Artificial Intelligence can serve to combat poverty, climate change and how it benefits the health, education and services sectors , as well as the strategies of each country and the future of technology in the region.

The event, which is organized by a multidisciplinary team of researchers and students from the MIT community, will also feature the participation of prominent personalities from the industry such as Blanca Treviño, director of Softtek; Luis Videgaray, director of the MIT Artificial Intelligence for the World Policy Project; and Vitor Elisio, Secretary of Telecommunications of Brazil, among others.
