AI4GALICIA is a Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) whose mission is to increase the competitiveness of the Galician production sector by promoting and intensifying the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) by companies and other economic actors in the region.
AI4GALICIA is a NON-PROFIT organisation.
The specific objectives of AI4GALICIA are as follows:
- Integrate and encourage cooperation between the University of A Coruña, technology centres, business, industry and its associates, venture capital firms, state administration bodies and other relevant agents.
- Offer high added-value services in the areas of R&D, innovation management and technology transfer.
- Train students, professionals and companies in Artificial Intelligence techniques and solutions.
- Actively identify the challenges facing industry, the public sector and society.
- Encourage cooperation between DIH nationally and internationally by promoting joint actions and projects, providing services and exchanging knowledge and good practice.
AI4GALICIA has been created as part of the European Commission’s Digitising European Industry (DEI) initiative, aimed at promoting the digitisation of industry and related services across all sectors (https://ec.europa.eu/digital-
One of the core purposes of this initiative is to create Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) across all European regions where companies (especially SMEs and start-ups) can find the infrastructures, expertise and advice they need to incorporate digital innovations into their production processes.
AI4GALICIA operates within the framework of the Connected Industry 4.0 programme created by the Spanish government (https://www.
AI4GALICIA is also part of the Smart Specialisation Strategy for Galicia (RIS3). Its contribution is centred around the three priorities contained in Challenge 2 of the strategy document: to support the diversification of economic driver sectors in Galicia; to strengthen the competitiveness of the Galician industrial sector; and to promote ICT in Galicia as a key enabling technology.

WATERSIG: Application of information technology to the integrated management of drinking water and sanitation services using big data and parallelisation strategies
The growing frequency of drought and flood events, coupled with rising city populations and damage to bodies of water, has made it necessary to improve the efficiency of our water cycle infrastructure.
The proliferation and falling cost of IoT sensors, allied with the new paradigm of Big Data, has created new opportunities to improve how water is managed and governed based on intensive use of data.
Design, development and experimental validation of an information system to improve water storage and sanitation infrastructure management using Big Data technology, artificial intelligence and software acceleration techniques.
Use of AI
The WaterSIG information system combines different Big Data and AI technologies in order to meet the needs of drinking water and sanitation networks, such as behaviour modelling, large-scale monitoring and identifying certain fault patterns.
