This university degree is a step forward in the path initiated by the UGR so that Granada is the seat of the Spanish Agency for the Supervision of Artificial Intelligence (AESIA), an entity of new creation that has been chosen together with other ten Spanish cities. Despite the number of candidates, Granada presents itself as one of the favorites alongside the proposals from Alicante and Coruña.
