Marta Marínez, president of IBM Spain, Portugal, Greece and Israel, will be the keynote speaker at the forthcoming Matins ESADE talk entitled ''Digital change: the cornerstones and challenges of a new era''.

Approximately 80% of companies are implementing or considering AI projects but only 4% already use AI to optimise their business projects. What are the technological, cultural and social factors essential for this leap forward?
