Kick off Fontys AI Community

Artificial Intelligence is no longer that “distant technology”. It is central to everything we do, whether we realize it or not. Think of by AI-supported more effective and more efficient deployment of healthcare professionals in order to guarantee high-quality and affordable care, think of the personalized learning & development of people because with AI you can gain a much better insight into people's development needs, such as the rapid transfer of the current economic market where banks are transforming into AI companies, think of… tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.

As Fontys we are aware of this development and recognize the increasing demand for more research, courses and engineers in the field of AI. We would like to start a community where we can discuss on this subject, start new projects, integrate AI into our curriculum and so on. And we would like you to be a part of this community.

On 12 November we organize an online event where we would like to gather all our lectors, teachers and directors within Fontys where we can kick off this community.
