Tamkeen launches AI academy at Bahrain Polytechnic

hhsk30 2019 04 18The labour fund ‘Tamkeen’, in cooperation with Bahrain Polytechnic and Microsoft, has announced the inauguration of the artificial intelligence academy in Bahrain Polytechnic

Tamkeen aims to provide a platform to enhance innovation and creativity capabilities of the youth in the field of artificial intelligence.

This came on the sidelines of the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) 2019, which was hosted by Bahrain from 15-18 April 2019. The event brought together entrepreneurs, investors, researchers and economic policymakers from more than 170 countries.

The academy plans to train and qualify 60 trainee students from Bahrain’s schools and universities as well as their teachers using an integrated syllabus incorporating artificial intelligence, data analysis, data science and machine basics.

The programme is considered to be a major strategic step that serves to strengthen the leading regional position of Bahrain in the field of artificial intelligence technology and to qualify a pioneering class by establishing a specialised base of Bahraini competencies and cadres in the region.

The specialised training programme will take place over the course of one year, wherein trainees must pass 10 stations and solve a real-world problem using knowledge and expertise gained to complete the programme.
