Deep Learning technology is changing the lives of millions of people all over the world.

Deep Learning is technology that transfers artificial intelligence to a new generation thanks to its results and new applications: from natural language recognition to translation systems, including control systems in series (manufacturing processes), and artificial vision.

Due to its great potential, many companies are planning large investments in advanced manufacturing and artificial intelligence. In the US over 70% of companies have invested in this technology or plan to do so.

The implementation of Deep Learning will help to resolve problems by achieving results that were previously impossible to achieve. It is capable of changing the lives of millions of people all around the world, and its application covers several areas and sectors of activity – from industry 4.0 to personalised medicine, including precision agriculture, optimisation of energy consumption and recycling.

At TECNALIA we’ve been working on deep learning applied to images since 2014. It is one of the strategic lines of our Computer Vision group. We offer our clients our experience and breakthroughs in this technology in order to improve processes and products, and jointly generate new products.

On 26 November we met with 78 people interested in how to apply Deep Learning in businesses. We showed case studies of well-known companies and organisations like BASF, one of the most important chemical companies in the world, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), ARCELORMITTAL, and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).
