We are increasingly moving towards an interdisciplinary-based research at the intersection between theory, algorithm and method science based on high demand from several disciplines. With high performance computing and advanced models for health data, we participate in the development of personalized medicine. Our research and knowledge of artificial intelligence will be crucial in the transition to a more computer-driven economy.
