On January 16, the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM) of the University of Chile received the visit of Carme Artigas, Secretary of State for Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation of Spain.
On the occasion, the delegation led by Ms. Artigas and Sergio Carranza, Counselor for Cultural and Scientific Affairs of the Embassy of Spain, met with Prof. Héctor Ramírez, director of the CMM; Ginés Guerrero, executive director of the National Laboratory for High Performance Computing (NLHPC); and a group of researchers from the Center.
Secretary of State Carme Artigas had the opportunity to learn more about the National Laboratory for Supercomputing initiative, and to exchange knowledge and experiences about Spain’s National AI Strategy, its Cloud Strategy and the EspañaDigital 2026 Agenda.
“It has been a great pleasure to meet Carme Artigas. A brilliant woman who has told us firsthand her experience in the implementation of various policies that they drive from the Spanish government regarding data. In the area of artificial intelligence and high performance computing, several very interesting programs were mentioned that could boost collaborations between Chile and Spain. Of course, from the NLHPC we will promote such collaborations, which will undoubtedly be very beneficial for both parties,” said Ginés Guerrero from the NLHPC.
