Major areas for strategic applications include robotics and drones, voice recognition and robots, Big Data and Machine Learning, intelligent and connected cities, intelligent mobility and transport systems and health, personalised medicine among others. The city now boasts over 150 companies, 7 laboratories, 9 cutting edge technology platforms and more than 1500 industrial employees all created to support the growing field.
