Togo : The main points of the international seminar on Artificial Intelligence

6 days ago | by: David Kodjani

The Nunya Lab incubator was the setting for the first international seminar on new technology trends and future jobs on Tuesday June 21.

Organized by Technologies and Future Professions (TecFuPro) in collaboration with the University of Vaasa in Finland, the forum aimed to raise awareness of new technology trends and future professions.

TecFuPro is part of the two organizations' commitment to providing sustainable education and training that takes into account new technological trends. A need created by the advent of Industry 4.0 which, together with the era of digitalisation, is increasingly shaping workplaces. 

A total of six topics were discussed at the forum, which enabled young people to enter this new digital era at NunyaLab. These were Artificial Intelligence, Renewable Energy and Smart Cities, Internet of Things (IoT), Virtual Reality, Artificial Reality and Blockchain.
