At UCP, the faculty members from FOIT and FMS participated in this SIC training as trainers for the extensive course of Artificial Intelligence and Job Preparation Skills training. As a result, the students of SIC training learned AI using the concrete foundation of mathematics and got experience of machine learning tools for solving real-world problems. This training also equipped students with skills for designing, implementing and communicating results of AI through the capstone AI project. Additionally, students understood the algorithms, the statistical and computational tasks of AI technology, and job preparation skills.
This training course is completed at three universities under the PGC group, including the University of Central Punjab, Lahore Capital University of Science & Technology, Islamabad and Muhammad Ali Jinnah University, Karachi.
This initiative was taken by Ms Ambreen Khursheed, the focal person for all four batches of this successful training conducted at three universities (the University of Central Punjab, Capital University of Science and Technology and Muhammad Ali Jinnah University).
