As the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) grows and its applications become more ubiquitous, nations all over the globe do not only invest resources and efforts to take advantage of AI but also expose and educate the younger generations to the principles and applications of AI.

In view of the above and furtherance to the Obafemi Awolowo University commitment to community service, the Department of Mathematics in collaboration with a team of Engineers and Scientists from Columbia University, United State of America and University of Guelph, Canada organized a 3-day intensive training session on the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence for some selected senior secondary school students in Ile-Ife.

The team led by Mr, Iretiayo Akinola with the support of the Department of Mathematics put together training materials for the workshop at no cost to the students. In addition, each student was also given a certificate of participation. The objective of the workshop was to introduce to the students the basics of AI and its applications through an intensive training session. The training on the fundamentals of AI was presented such that the students can continue to develop their knowledge of AI long after the workshop was over.

Participating Schools: O. A. U. International School, Seventh Day Adventist Government High School, Oduduwa Government High School, and Moremi High School.

Instructors: Iretiayo Akinola (U. S. A.), Simone Fobi (U. S. A.), Adefunke Akinola (Canada), Opeyemi Olanrewaju (Nigeria) and Ayobami Adebesin (Nigeria)
