HAINA Open Session Cloud, Big Data, AI and Working Placement Scheme (July 30, 2019)

Many companies are embracing the Cloud to help them to be more agile, flexible, and effective at delivering better business outcomes. Today, most companies are already using XaaS offerings, and by 2020, it's estimated that 78% of workloads will be processed through the cloud. Therefore, cloud computing has been a key technology of shaping the ways of developing as well as managing businesses in the future.

Big data provides a fuller picture. It allows organisations to understand the people they serve, choose better strategies, allocate their resources more effectively and operate smarter. One challenge can be gathering the necessary skills together to equip the existing workforce with the technical knowhow needed to harness analytics and data for business benefits.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is not new. It has been around for decades. However, due to greater processing speeds and access to vast amounts of rich data, AI is beginning to take root in our everyday lives. From natural language generation and voice or image recognition to predictive analytics, machine learning and driverless cars, AI systems have applications in many areas. These technologies are critical to bringing about innovation, providing new business opportunities and reshaping the way companies operate.

In this open session, the speaker will deliver a brief introduction of Cloud Computing, Big Data as well as AI with a successful business case to illustrate how those technology can help with today’s businesses. He also will discuss the role and contributions of Huawei on the area of Cloud, Big Data and AI enterprise solutions. A brief introduction of training course of Cloud, Big Data, AI will then be provided, followed by the explanation of work placement opportunities in Huawei UK Office and Student Ambassador Scheme in HAINA UoR.

We offer two time slots of open sessions. Please feel free to join the one which suits your time.
