Queen’s University has signed an agreement with the Government of Egypt that will see Queen’s providing artificial intelligence and data science training to Egyptian students. The program will provide remote training through Queen’s School of Computing’s Master of Data Science and Machine Learning to up to 100 Egyptian students as part of the Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology’s Digital Egypt Builders Initiative. The partnership will help address Egypt’s need for those with data science and machine learning backgrounds to build capacity in modern technologies. “Queen’s is pleased to support this new partnership with Egypt, supporting postsecondary education and preparing students to be leaders in their communities,” says Queen’s Principal Patrick Deane.
