In an emerging moment of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC) is committed to putting on the table the importance of socially disseminating the science and engineering behind this discipline. A bet that is in line with the University's commitment to bring scientific knowledge closer to the youngest and awaken vocations in STEAM areas (fScience, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).
Thus, it has started a project to socially disseminate the latest scientific advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI), its applications and its impact on society, in a format accessible to the general public, through talks, conferences and a set of 5 capsules of video aimed especially at libraries, civic centres, schools and institutes. The video series is starring 8 researchers from the IDEAI-UPC Research Center, who explain what AI, science and engineering are and what challenges they have to design and program machines capable of carrying out tasks that require intelligence to be performed. This branch of engineering is already producing very important results in many fields of application such as natural language processing or artificial vision.
