Microsoft is organizing in Athens a four-day bootcamp titled “Alice envisions the future – How Artificial Intelligence can impact the way we see the world”, in order to inspire and introduce young girls the world of artificial intelligence and the ways in which new technologies change the world.
The bootcamp will take place from August 27th to August 30th, 2018 and it aims to encourage and inspire more than 160 female students aged 15-17 who are interested in science and technology, to gain a proactive and leadership role in their future career path.
According to recent Microsoft surveys, despite the fact that technology is creating excellent career opportunities, few girls are choosing to pursue studies or professions in this field. The initiative’s main idea and inspiration come from innovative technologies, Artificial Intelligence and the ways in which they can be used in order to give female students the tools to build their future and achieve their professional goals.
Microsoft also wants to invest in resources to ensure that young students, starting at a primary school level through to postgraduate studies, will have access to new technologies and develop a vision for a better tomorrow. For that reason, the company aims to work with the Ministries of Education throughout Central and Eastern Europe to ensure that students are empowered and enabled to acquire the appropriate skills for their future course.
Where: Hilton Hotel (46 Vas. Sofias Avenue)
