“Latin American Talent
The convergence of several factors, and the chiseling hand of time, have turned Latin America into a sweet spot when it comes to headhunting. Latin American universities offer a wide range of software related degrees, from undergraduate to doctoral, particularly in Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
R&D in Brazil
Taking a closer look at Brazil, we can point to the São Paulo Research Foundation, or FAPESP, which is a public foundation with the mission to support research projects in higher education and research institutions.
Applied AI in Argentina
In Argentina, the software community has been growing strong both in the industry and academia. In 2015, the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) was held there; in 2017, the International Conference on Software Engineering took its turn.
Chile and the IoT
Chile has shown to be particularly fruitful in the development and adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). The Chilean company Satelnet has been making it possible for its clients to run operations in remote locations in the south of the country, and to access online information even on mobile bases. They can view and control remote cameras or run any production process automatically through satellite technology.”
