In an exciting exchange of knowledge and ideas, a group of students from Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar recently visited the laboratories of the Institute of Smart Systems and Artificial Intelligence (ISSAI) to learn about the Institute’s groundbreaking work in artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.
The visit took place on 28 February 2023 to give the students a hands-on look at ISSAI’s work and how it can impact the future of AI and robotics.
During the visit, the students were introduced to several projects that ISSAI is currently working on, including the development of a hybrid mobile robot based on a tensegrity structure, natural language processing for the Kazakh language, and computer vision. The students were particularly impressed by the project on AI technologies for the Kazakh language, which could contribute to the development of voice assistants in Kazakh.
The students also had the opportunity to interact with the researchers and engineers, ask them questions about the projects and discuss their ideas about AI and robotics.
Yerbol Absalyamov, ISSAI’s technical project coordinator, was very pleased with the visit: ‘It was a pleasure to host such a bright and curious group of students in our labs. It’s important to engage with the next generation of innovators and provide them with the tools and knowledge they need to shape the future of AI and robotics.’
The students were also happy with the visit and looked inspired and motivated to further explore the potential of AI and robotics.
