Exposure to Future Career Opportunities

As part of Industry Revolution 4.0, Artificial Intelligence becomes one of the key areas to be developed, where resources are seen to be heavily invested in this area. Recently, the APU Careers Centre, in collaboration with goSMAC and the School of Computing, organized a career talk titled “The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth”, which discussed on Artificial Intelligence and the ways it could change the world.
The speaker, Michael Lai, holds an impeccable profile within the tech industry. In his career, he held high positions in technology companies such as the CEO of TM Net, Malaysia and Senior Vice President of Celcom, Malaysia. Now, he is the Technopreneur for goSMAC and leads his team who are eager to reach out to students in terms of bringing industry exposure. In his engaging session with students, there were many references to AI and the business elements of running his own Tech & IT Company. Michael shared case studies and experience in Social, Mobile, Analytic & Cloud (SMAC) platforms, in which he gave exposure to the students on the world of possibilities within the industry.

The talk by Michael provided great insights on the opportunities available, in line with the Industrial Revolution 4.0, which is about to take place as a global phenomenon. It was a great initiative by APU Careers Centre and the faculty, to deliver talks that provide extensive industrial exposure to our students.
