Investors and entrepreneurs will once again come together at the South Summit in Madrid, an encounter that has been a proven success in previous years. BBVA will have a distinguished participation in the event.
With the naming of DOV-E as its Global Trends winner at Next Money in Chicago, BBVA this week continued its push to find and partner with the world's most innovative fintech start-ups.
For many of the startups competing in this year’s BBVA Open Talent competitions - even those that didn’t win - the Open Talent experience is like no other, creating unparalleled opportunities for expert guidance, high-level networking with industry decision makers, and exposure to potential investors.
In Spain, while large companies and startups are already well aware of the value of data, small and medium-sized businesses are starting to awaken to this notion. In this article we take a look at three dimensions where 'big data' can make a substantial difference to boost the prospects of business success across companies of all sizes.
Agriculture stands at the threshold of a new revolution. The rising population, the competition for increasingly scarce resources and the phenomenon of climate change are just some of the challenges facing the sector as it seeks to feed all of humanity. We need to produce more with less, a challenge that the farm sector has already begun to answer, thanks to the Internet of Things, whose sensors have brought the benefits of big data to the farmsteads and croplands.
This article is the second part about serverless, where we will cover the integration of one of the most interesting products implementing this technology (Fission) in OpenShift, RedHat’s PaaS platform.
Prior to this article, this analysis of serverless architectures or FaaS (Function as a Service) was prepared, to introduce this technology together with its value in business developments.
BBVA’s Chief Financial Officer, Jaime Sáenz de Tejada explained this morning that “digital transformation is affecting all areas of the bank, and customers are the first ones to feel this. The results are already tangible. And, more and more, customers are turning to digital channels,” he said, in the Eighth Financial Encounter organized by the business daily Expansión and KPMG.
Serverless architecture, also known as FaaS (Functions as a Service) enables the execution of an application via ephemeral, stateless containers; these are created at the moment an event is produced that sets off this application. Contrary to what the term suggests, serverless does not mean “without a server.” Rather, these are used as an anonymous element of the infrastructure, supported by the advantages of cloud computing.
Here, leaving aside the hype that accompanies the term serverless, we explore in this post the possibilities it offers in architecture and applications development. We also study the principal alternatives for use in public and private clouds.
Neural networks training is a time consuming activity, the amount of computation needed is usually high even for today standards. There are two ways to reduce the time needed, use more powerful machines or use more machines.
The first approach can be achieved using dedicated hardware like GPUs or maybe FPGAs or TPUs in the future. But it can also be done by splitting the task between more general purpose hardware like the one used in cloud systems.
This document summarizes the conclusions reached after researching the use of distributed neural networks.
In the United States, there are already $20 billion under management by robot advisors and for the moment, the numbers testify to the success. Improving their knowledge of the investor could turn robo-advisors into a financial tool of the first order.
