Costa Rica Puts Time and Attention into AI Development - Nearshore Americas

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is having a broad and deep impact on the way services are exported globally. Be it for good or bad, there is no getting away from the reality that AI is an agent of disruption. One of the perennial front-runners of Nearshore outsourcing, Costa Rica, appears to be adapting to the AI opportunity faster than most countries in the region. Local companies are intensifying their AI development operations and a number of AI technologies are gaining traction there – all of which will influence Costa Rica's positioning in the next-generation of services delivery. The Latin American nation of nearly five million has long been seen as a tech epicenter of Central America ever since Intel chose it to open the biggest microchip factory in the region in 1997, with an initial investment of US$800 million.
