The new Information and Communication Technologies-ICT play a relevant role today, they are increasingly present in the products and services with which we interact every day, such as cell phones or television. With this in mind, the National Apprenticeship Service (SENA) in partnership with Huawei created the first artificial intelligence laboratory to deliver professionals with technological skills to the world.
The modern space is the first in Colombia and Latin America, it is located in the SENA Business Management and Services Center of the Antioquia region and seeks to benefit about 600 apprentices throughout the country during the first year, to train them in topics related to the machine learning, big data, and internet of things, among others.
For the general director of SENA, Carlos Mario Estrada Molina, the alliance made with this technological giant will strengthen these skills. “Instructors and apprentices will find all the most advanced technologies, resources and tools to learn about the fourth industrial revolution and thus meet one of the economic needs that our country has today.”
"The new innovation and technology center is located in the city of Medellín and it is expected to benefit about 600 apprentices during the first year.."
On the other hand, the Vice President of the Huawei Enterprise Business in Colombia Xue Fei, assured that technology training is essential for the country’s development.
In the cloud computing and artificial intelligence laboratory the work is focused on topics related to big data, machine learning, and the internet of things, among others.
“It is a great honor to work with SENA in the construction of this artificial intelligence laboratory, where students and teachers will get to know and experience, first-hand, the latest innovations in the ICT sector. These types of initiatives are part of our contribution to make this country smarter and better connected. “
The key to face ICT scenarios is to have digital skills that allow professionals to interact with different technological processes and create solutions to improve the sectors of health, construction, commerce, agriculture, culture, entertainment and others.
