AIDEC Consultancies International Ltd has opened an Artificial Intelligence (AI) centre to provide both in-person and virtual training, educational programmes and consulting services on AI.
The services and training will be provided to organisations and institutions in the private and public sectors, giving practical knowledge in areas of AI and its application for agriculture, health, education, fintech and mechanical engineering, among others.
The company is doing this in collaboration with a consortium of partners that include the Institute of ICT Professionals Ghana (IIPGH), and 7W Artificial Intelligence company Ltd of Slovenia.
At the launch of the centre, the Executive Chairman of AIDEC Digital, Ambrose Yennah, said the agreement to establish the centre was to provide value creation services and equip students with practical hands-on-training in design thinking, data analytics, machine learning, deep learning and other advanced technological training in Artificial Intelligence.
That, he said, would make them more efficient in the job market.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of 7W Artificial Intelligence Company Ltd, Katja Gersak, for his part, said the agreement would include but not limited to the study and application of digital twin, State Leadership Artificial Intelligence Managerial Tool (SLAIMT) and AI, among other things, with a specific focus on the health and educational sectors.
Developing ready job skills
The President and Provost of Academic City University College, Professor Fred McBagonluri, said the programme would help in developing ready job skills by providing access to AI programmes in areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM).
He said this would help students to use advanced engineering and technology to pursue research initiatives that were focused on solving complex problems for industry and society in general.
The Executive Director of the Institute of ICT Professionals, Ghana, David Gowu, for his part, said the consortium would work with Global Networks and Partners to help develop the ICT ecosystem for students, ICT professionals and entrepreneurs.
He said that would be done through the operation of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services and identifying other project ideas that would create jobs in IT/Digital solutions and services.
He said the consortium would also help to advance IT policy formulation and advocacy and provide an avenue for upgrading the skills and competencies of ICT professionals and students with creative and innovative ideas.
