Armenian Intelligence Project (Project AI)
The high tech sector is one of the fastest growing markets in Armenia. However, people with disabilities (PWD) are often excluded from labour participation in this sector. Such exclusion leads to a tremendous loss of intellectual potential. On May 31 2021, Hay-Invicta NGO in collaboration with Pontem-Laboratories in Armenia commenced a one year didactic program for young people affected by the recent war in Artsakh. At the completion of the program, the students will be fully prepared to directly enter the job market.
The Goal of the Project
The Armenian Intelligence Project project aims at preparing highly skilled professionals in the field of technical programing, data-science and knowledge engineering. Over the course of their studies, the students will learn programing with C++ and Python and will gain fundamental knowledge in operating systems. Subsequently, the students will learn state of the art techniques and approaches in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. The technical part of the program will be supplemented with a comprehensive soft-skills training, during which the students will enhance their interpersonal communication skills, work ethics and team work. In parallel, the students will receive specialized English training. The project team will actively work on connecting the students with the employers to ensure a fast entry into the job market.
