Transforming Education with A.I. and new technologies

Written on April 23, 2019 by Campus Life in Professional

Last week, in collaboration with the IE School of Human sciences and Technology and the IE business school, the AI club organised a visit to the WoW room of IE university. Launched in October 2016, the WoW room (Window on the World room) is a virtual classroom comprised of a 45 square meter video wall made up of 48 monitors arranged in a U-shape. This lecture theater simulates a face-to-face classroom environment, seamlessly allowing all students to interact with each other as if they were sitting in a real classroom.

The WoW Room takes IE’s commitment to technology immersion in learning environments to the next level. It provides students with a unique and highly-immersive virtual classroom experience that uses artificial intelligence, real time simulations and analytics, big data analysis, and interactive robots to provide both the students and professors (either a hologram or physically present) with a highly enriched learning experience. It can even run algorithms that recognize patterns in facial expressions to assess understanding and identify students’ emotional state and levels of attention. You can also have a look at a demo video of the WoW room by clicking on this link .

“The great thing about a virtual classroom is that your students are already in a digital format, which means you can run algorithms that recognize patterns in facial expressions to assess understanding and identify students’ emotional state and levels of attention in your class.” Professor Martin Boehm, dean of IE .

After the visit to the WoW room, a live demo of the new VR (Virtual Reality) center was presented to our student. The VR space is a place specially put in place for the students of IE University. It is located in Maria de Molina 4, 2nd floor and can be booked online. The VR space is designed for our student to experience Virtual reality through different applications. If you are studying at IE, make sure you check this place out.

This event allowed students to visit these special and innovative places while discovering the new dimensions of future online education as well as how AI and new technologies disrupt this industry.

Thanks to IE university for providing the demo to the IE AI Club!

On Wednesday, 27th March 2019; the IE AI Club hosted the Machine Learning for Fraud detection event session. Our speaker was Professor Jesus Prada an expert in Machine Learning -Sigesa and holds many credentials under his name such as Professor -IE School of Human Science & Technology, Teacher at DevAcademy, Freelance Data Scientist -Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Machine Learning Engineer, Madrid-MIT M+Vision Consortium and many more)

Professor Jesus Prada walked the audience through the fundamentals of Machine Learning, the importance of aspiring data scientist to be well-rounded & balance in computer science, business knowledge and Statistic and mathematics. He further presented on Data sources, Pre-processing data, Algorithm parameters, Machine Learning models analyses and Evaluation Metrics.

The audience remained engaged throughout the presentation & fascinated by such rich knowledge.

Jesus Prada further elaborated on a very important concept in Machine learning ‘Accuracy Vs Interpretability trade-off’
“In Machine Learning, the most accurate models tend to be the most complex ones, for this reason, best models are usually the less interpretable ones”

This event was indeed enriching and captivating. Stay tuned with the AI Club for our upcoming events!


Last Tuesday members of Net Impact Club had a community dinner event at La Vaqueria Montanesa.  We bonded over delicious, locally sourced food while discussing topics related to sustainable business practices. La Vaqueria Montanesa is a restaurant dedicated to simplicity and honesty in their business. As members of Net impact we love that they focus on being “green” and source their meat directly from ethical farmers whose cattle roam free. This was a fantastic event to get to know one another and Madrid better while enjoying some of the best caprese salad, and roast chicken one can find!

Data has some Big ideas for Energy

Written on March 25, 2019 by Campus Life in Professional

We had the pleasure to host a fantastic presentation yesterday from Quintas Energy explaining how they are using big data to obtain a very solid picture of the complex and heterogenic components affecting the management of solar plants. By doing so they are able, not only to monitor de performance and operations real time but to forecast the financial projections and hence gaining an easier access to capital.

Representatives from many companies from the sector attended as well and we had a super enriching networking experience afterwards.

Thank you to all the participants and to IE.

Written on March 19, 2019 by Campus Life in Other Activities, Professional

In the next two weeks, the Debate Club have been preparing to attend two MUN conferences, WorldMUN hosted by Harvard in Madrid and GIMUN in Geneva. The two conferences are happening within days of each other, (WorldMUN 18th – 23rd March and GIMUN 23rd – 30th March) and two separate delegations are attending. 

 For WorldMUN we have a total of 11 delegates , including three from the Madrid Campus. For Geneva we have a total of 8 delegates and one chair all from the Segovia Campus.  


All delegates have been preparing for the conference since January, attending 6 public speaking sessions as well as MUN training to go over what resolution writing is, how to write position papers etc.  Gratefully, the trip to both Madrid and Geneva is being funded by Campus Life, The School of Global and Public Affairs, as well as the Business School. 

All the delegates are extremely excited for this opportunity where they are able to put into practice the different skills and knowledge gained in classrooms as we have a variety of International Relations, Business, Politics Law and Economics as well as dual degree students attending the conference. We hope for a good experience for all our delegates and are expecting amazing results from the conference.
