AI in Latin America is healthy and growing in at least five countries and expanding to other nations. For instance, ITESM's AI graduate programs have graduated students from Bolivia, Peru, and Ecuador, who are returning to their countries to work in universities and companies. AI is a young scientific discipline compared to other sciences. Since its creation in the mid-twentieth century by Alan Turing and various American researchers, it has grown steadily and spread across the world, including LA. This has been facilitated by the sharing of a common type of language and the same culture, but most importantly, by the great scientific challenges posed by AI objectives.
