Artificial intelligence, machine learning and data are at the heart of the digital revolution we are currently experiencing. To support business decision-making, one must go beyond predictions and employ causal data science, which enables you to identify the factors that most directly help influence customer decision-making. We explain it in this video!

We welcome Jordi Mur to our TECNIO group!

Dr. Jordi Mur has joined our group as a Tecniospring Industry Fellow

Jordi has been awarded a 2-year Tecniospring Industry contract by ACCIÓ —the Catalan Government’s agency for business competitiveness— to develop a python engine for causal data science.

He joins us after working 5+ years at the forefront of quantum technologies at the University of Oxford, and a stint advising the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority on technological innovations and their impact on businesses, markets, and consumers.

Welcome back to Barcelona, Jordi!

Tecniospring Industry funding acknowledgement

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme through a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action, and from the Agency for Business Competitiveness of the Government of Catalonia.
