The AI Club's First Techweek!

On the occasion of Techweek, we interviewed Nayara Rabelo Vasques, AI and Machine Learning student and member of the Ai Clarity Student Club! Here are her thoughts on hers and her club's first Techweek.

Involved Students

Student involvement in an event like Techweek is of major importance. We strive to offer them opportunities to rub shoulders with experts in their field of study. This gives students the chance to put classroom knowledge into practice, develop their technical skills and strengthen their professional network. 

For all these reasons, we're extremely pleased with student participation! Both by their attendance and by their questions, our students made their passion for our speakers known, and their interest in our products clear.

By taking part in this event, students were able to discover the latest technological innovations, which better prepares them for their future careers in technology. 

A big thank you to our inspiring speakers for sharing their expertise and thank you to the participants for their rewarding involvement!
