Persontyle Oman in partnership with School of Data Science and Engineering UK, announced that they are holding an Artificial Intelligence (AI) certification program from April 18-19, 2018 at the City Seasons Muscat. The 2-day certification program will help business and technology leaders in Oman to practically learn how to use AI and emerging technologies for innovation and digital transformation.
The mission of the AI certification program is to equip local talent with the world-class practical skills to unlock the potential of AI technologies and to empower Oman on its digital transformation journey as outlined in Oman Vision 2020 and Oman Digital Strategy (e.Oman).
“The impacts of artificial intelligence can already be seen in our homes, across businesses and impacting our social fabric. Many businesses are using AI and machine learning to make predictions, improve performance and for reducing costs. We can already see how AI gives rise to new enterprise applications, from self-driving cars to intelligent assistants on our smartphones. As a new breed of enterprise platform that can learn without being explicitly programmed, AI can access, analyse, and find patterns in big data in a way that is beyond human capabilities. The business advantages are huge, and the market is expected to be worth $47 billion by 2020.” says Mr. Ahmed Kashoob, Founder of Center for Studies and Economic Research (CSER) Oman and Chairman of Persontyle Oman.
The certification program will provide an overview of AI, the current state of this technology and practical recommendations for how to make the best use of the transformation opportunities it can bring.
