A nice visit to CESGA centre was organized by Santiago to explore the Big Data center
During their visit, the CA teachers had the opportunity to visit the Galician Supercomputing Centre (CESGA) and the Singular Center on Intelligent Technologies (CiTIUS). The aim of these two visits was to provide detailed information on the structure and operation of each centre. The directors of these centres organized several talks and made a detailed exhibition of the facilities and services of their centres.
