Local teams make it to global AI competition
TWO student teams are representing Malaysia in an ongoing international Artificial Intelligence (AI) competition. This year’s edition of the competition encourages international teams in the Asia Pacific to showcase their mastery of high-performance computing and AI expertise in a friendly yet spirited competition that builds critical skills, professional relationships, competitive spirit and lifelong camaraderie. Held remotely, the competition is seeing a record number of teams – 30 in total – comprising undergraduate and graduate competitors from some of the region’s leading academic institutions. The champion team will go on to compete in the 2021 ISC-HPCAIAC Student Cluster Competition in Frankfurt, Germany, next June. As part of this year’s competition, the HPCAIAC and NSCC have joined the global fight against Covid-19 and have expanded the competition to address education and applied learning towards accelerating bioscience research and discovery.
