The University of Macau’s (UM) Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) organised a training course in artificial intelligence for 18 outstanding skilled workers from different professions in Shenzhen. Apart from experiencing firsthand the high-quality teaching by UM’s international faculty team, participants also visited the State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City and the Joint Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at the university. They also took a field trip to study the current progress of smart city development in Macao. The five-day training course was delivered by senior professors of UM and members of industry elite. Participants say they have gained a great deal from the course and expressed their wish to return to UM for similar training courses in the future.
