Today, I’m glad to inform that I have opened a art gallery in this website (link) , that includes some of my latest artistic creations related with BSC and UPC. I wish to include more artworks in the future. The last one is inspired by the pier and gazebo on the lake of Torre Girona  (google maps). Yes! This is the UPC Campus Nord, where the Supercomputer Marenostrum resides! It is a luxury to work in this environment, isn’t?     My art studio: Art Gallery link: http://jorditorres.org/artgallery  

Talking about Cognitive Computing Platforms with Barcelona GSE Master Data Science Students

2017-08-12T16:05:48+00:00 March 9th, 2015|

Last week I gave a conference to Master Data Science students at Barcelona Graduated School of Economics.  We started talking about Big Data, the newest and one of the most exciting technologies currently available to business and society.  We pay attention that the technology is often so subtle that people have no idea that big data is actually helping make their lives easier. The talk was centered to the advent of new technologies as cognitive computing, that will have the potential to augment our reasoning capabilities and empower us to make better informed real-time decision.  Undoubtedly Cognitive Computing will change the way we work and live. Gaston Besanson was the organiser. I enjoyed being with you. Thank you Gaston for this gift! You can download the complete presentation (54 slides) from this link. [...]
