The Minister of Higher Education (MES), Walter Baluja, who is visiting the Asian giant, presided over the opening of this place with the leadership of the University of Camaguey and other academic centers of the two countries.
According to diplomatic sources here and from MES, this is a project that seeks to promote social development through innovation and knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), where China is a world leader.
The Institute’s foreign director, Yailé Caballero Mota, shared his enthusiasm and vision for this unprecedented initiative for the Caribbean island.
“Today we are opening a great door for our universities and countries to continue traveling along the path of unity, progress, innovation, and knowledge,” he said at the opening ceremony. The institute, located in Hebei in the north of the country, is presented as an engine of progress in the field of artificial intelligence, which has a direct impact on the Houses of Higher Studies and a significant contribution to the well-being of the population.
Previously, the head of MES visited the city of Shanghai in the east, where he held meetings with academic leaders and explored opportunities for collaboration with prominent educational institutions.
The Cuban delegation spoke there with the representatives of the University of Science and Technology and the Normal del Este and met with the president of the Education Commission of the Government and the authorities of the Academy of Social Sciences.
AI is a branch of computer science that focuses on creating computer systems and programs that can perform tasks typically designed for human intelligence.
These systems are able to learn, reason, solve problems, and make decisions based on data and patterns.
That technology is used in a variety of applications, from virtual assistants and recommendation systems to autonomous cars and medical diagnostics, with the aim of automating tasks and improving efficiency in various industries.
