Six leading Thai universities have announced a cooperation with the Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation Ministry, to open the Artificial Intelligence Engineering Institute (AIEI).
The partners will cooperate with private sector players such as Huawei Technologies, T.C.C. Technology, Advance Infor Service Public PCL., True Digital Park, and Kasikorn Business-Technology Group. American multinational technology company NVIDIA will help develop artificial intelligence (AI) talent by empowering the universities through the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute and teaching kits. In this context, the six universities will jointly develop AI courses for sharing so that an AI workforce can be produced quickly and in sufficient numbers.
The Carnegie Mellon-KMITL (CMKL) University, one of the six partners, will launch a pilot study program focusing on students’ competency-based education, which will be unconventional and develop teaching skills that students can use in their work.
The AIEI aims to help coordination between university networks to jointly manage education, share resources, and provide students with more efficient access to experts from the universities in their networks.
