The Government of Aragon has already made an official interest in presenting Zaragoza as a candidate for the seat of the future Spanish Agency for the Supervision of Artificial Intelligence (AESIA), an entity that also aspires to Granada and a decade of options.

The announcement took place recently during the presentation of the Aragonese Strategy for Artificial Intelligence (EAIA) at the facilities of the Instituto Tecnológico de Aragón Itainnova.



According to the communique sent by the cited Instituto Tecnológico de Aragón “within the process of decentralization of entities of new creation initiated by the central government, the Strategy highlights the ‘alignment’ of the potentialities of Aragón with the scope of the future Spanish Agency of Supervisión de la Inteligencia Artificial, encargada de velar por la viability, legalidad y validez de las solutions IA desarrolladas en todo el país y su consequential verificación”. In line with this reasoning, the director of Itainnova, Esther Borao, confirmed in this meeting that the Aragon Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) “postulará a la capital aragonesa como posible sede del futuro organismo“, indicates the same communique. La secretaria de Estado de Digitalización e Inteligencia Artificial, Carme Artig, supported the presentation of the Strategy through a video.
