The University of Macau (UM) Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) organised training course on Artificial Intelligence and Big Data for 40 students from Guangzhou Institute of Science and Technology during Nov 13 to 17. We received positive feedback from students.

The five-day training course consisted of a series of lectures delivered by UM professors. The course covered many themes and gave the students a good understanding of the development of AI in Macao. Moreover, students joined campus tour guided by PR Student Ambassadors and also visited the State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City (SKL-IOTSC). The students expressed that they gained a lot from the training course.
