Data science (DS) is concerned with the extraction of useful knowledge from large, complex data sets. Today, career opportunities for data scientists are extremely varied, with increasing demand, in Asia and internationally, for skilled analysts who understand all the links in the chain of processing, analysing, and extracting knowledge from big data. Artificial intelligence (AI) is an even broader field about the automation or simulation of human intelligence. AI has 2 primary levels.
A survey found that approximately half of executives across geographies and industries reported greater difficulty recruiting analytical talent than filling any other kind of role. Data scientists, in particular, are in high demand. The people who design, develop, deploy and train AI technology are in short supply even in global AI hubs. The shortage is even more acute in the ASEAN region.
The trends indicate that the development of appropriate educational programs to build skills in data science and AI that bring European experts together with Asian experts will contribute to regional success in the race to transform national economies from commodity-based to knowledge-based economies.
Objectives of the project
- Develop new specialized curricula and an innovative MSc programme on Data Science and Artificial Intelligence thus helping build the capacity of the Asian partner countries’(PC) HEIs, improve the level of competences and skills offered, and address the existing absence of a similar programme.
- Promote cooperation, exchange of know-how and good practices in Αsia between EU and PC HEIs.
- Establish viable synergies and links with the regional IT Industry in order to address their needs in specialized personnel in DS&AI, training needs and enhance the employability of DS&AI graduates.
