Uruguay is working to position itself as a leader in robotics and programming.
“The country is increasingly earning a reputation for its prowess in both software and robotics. The country has a workforce that is surprisingly agile, highly educated and generationally diverse, says KPMG Brazil managing partner Ruben Gallago . . . . At the collegiate level, the Universidad de La Republic, the countryâ€™s oldest and largest university, has created a project to create a â€œsimple and economic platformâ€ to help engineering students and teachers internalize the basic ideas of programming.
