KGU and IBM Japan Launch the AI Talent Development Program: Virtual Learning Edition
Kwansei Gakuin University (led by President Osamu Murata and located in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture) has developed the AI Talent Development Program: Virtual Learning Edition (KGAI-VL) together with IBM Japan (led by General Manager Akio Yamaguchi and headquartered in Chuo, Tokyo), and will launch this program starting in July 2021 as a paid service for companies, local governments, and universities. KGAI-VL includes three courses (each lasting about 20 hours) titled "AI for Beginners," "Introduction to Application Design for AI Solutions," and "Introduction to Data Science for AI Solutions." These courses are all offered online in an on-demand format. KGAI-VL also features a chatbot built with IBM Watson Assistant that answers questions from learners. This means that anyone belonging to a partner company or local government can take these courses whenever and wherever they are, as many times as they wish. Kwansei Gakuin University will launch this program for companies, local governments, and universities with the aim to reach 50,000 annual attendees by fiscal 2024 and to contribute to the creation of AI talent.
