Why this programme?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming our lives, being present in the most diverse areas of our daily routines. Industry is no exception, and the enormous potential of AI in this sector has contributed to turn production into a more efficient, flexible, and reliable process.
The information that may be extracted through advanced processing techniques from the high volume of data generated by organisations is of great relevance and can be used to support operational and strategic decisions.
One of the great challenges of this digitalisation is linked to the lack of Human Resources and the upcoming difficulty to recruit and retain qualified professionals. With the Recovery and Resilience Plan creating the space for companies to adapt to the new green and digital reality, our training course is an opportunity for companies to re-qualify their workers and promote an upskilling culture, becoming a more attractive workplace.
This training, made available for many years in Germany by the famous Fraunhofer IAIS Institute and recognised as an asset by the German Industry, will be conducted in Portuguese by researchers and experienced professionals in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.
With a strong practical component, the training course will rely on examples and exercises to prepare participants for an immediate application of the knowledge in their professional challenges.
Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS’ expertise, namely in Intelligent Systems, counts on the contribution of a team of researchers with proven knowledge in areas such as Signal and Image Processing, and Machine Learning: the nuclear areas needed to develop systems with the ability to perceive, analyse, learn, and support decision making.
The experience of more than 12 years of Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS, combined with the expertise of Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) - one of the leading scientific institutes in the fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data in Germany and Europe - gives rise to the Data Scientist Specialized in Data Analytics Training Programme.
This program was created for technical staff and specialists from companies facing the challenges of digitization, specifically:
> Data managers who want to learn to describe data in an effective and integrated way;
> Data Analysts who want to learn how to use Machine Learning tools to develop predictive models in order to detect trends in data, make predictions and categorizations that support decisions.
> Programmers interested in Machine Learning techniques.
> Anyone with STEM background interested in the career of Data Analyst.
