View as: Print Mobile App Share:
MarIA, the expert artificial intelligence in the Spanish language created with the MareNostrum supercomputer at the Barceona Supercomputing Center.

The MarIA open AI system is expert in understanding and writing in Spanish, and is capable of understanding not only abstract concepts, but also their context.


Researchers at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center have created an open AI system named MarIA that is trained to understand and write in Spanish. 

It can be used in linguistic predictors and correctors, chatbots, automatic summary applications, smart searches, sentiment analysis applications or translation engines and automatic subtitling, among other applications.The project has been financed with funds from the Language Technologies Plan of the Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence. MarIA is the first model of its kind that is designed to work in Spanish using AI and big data.

MarIA was created by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and trained on the MareNostrum supercomputer with files from Biblioteca Nacional de España.
