Promoting awareness of AI through education

By Fountech Team
February 14, 2020

You may have noticed that education, knowledge-sharing and learning are core tenets of Fountech’s business strategy. The reason for this is simple – education is synonymous with progress and innovation. Without this, industries like artificial intelligence (AI) would be inherently limited in what they can achieve.

This thinking influences and inspires our work here at Fountech, and over the last few months we have been making huge strides in our efforts to promote education.

Firstly, we were excited to announce the launch of a €2 million investment round for our flagship project – Soffos. As an AI-powered TutorBot, Soffos will apply AI and machine learning technologies to a vast array of educational materials available online to deliver personalised teaching to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Secondly, as part of our on-going efforts to educate businesses in different sectors about the practical benefits of AI, we recently released the first in a series of new whitepapers focusing on the legal industry. The Legal Whitepaper serves as a hugely valuable guide for any legal professional interested in understanding just what AI toolsets can be applied to improve the way their organisation operates.

Finally, our senior leadership team has launched a monthly initiative to help entrepreneurs, graduates and students learn about AI. At Fountech, we are endeavouring to equip the next generation of workers with the skills and expertise needed to pursue a career in AI; ensuring there is sufficient talent in this technology is, after all, going to be massively important if AI is going to continue evolving at pace over the coming years.

To achieve this, our CEO Nikolas Kairinos and Lead AIArchitect Petros Mina hold monthly conference calls with entrepreneurs and students, offering their expert insight on the key trends defining AI and providing tailored advice to participants on the different AI career paths available to them. Not only do these calls provide you access to leaders in the AI field, they are also a fantastic way of networking with like-minded professionals and graduates.

Held in the last week of each month, our next session is scheduled for 25th July. Spaces are limited so be sure to reserve your spot by emailing ai@fountech.ai.

The second-half of 2019 is set to be exciting time for Fountech as we continue in our efforts to help individuals and organisations realise the full potential of AI. As always, if you’re interested in finding out more about our services, the current projects we’re working on, or simply have a question about AI, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!
