Dr. Christian Lemaitre: "Central character in the history of our Artificial Intelligence community, its energy and clarity of the need to bring together all those interested in the field of AI in Mexico in the difficult years of 82-86, was decisive to start the SMIA, a society of friends, that gave a new channel to the academic work in Mexico of computing and AI.
