Earlier today the University of Malta, MCAST, eSkills Malta Foundation, the Institute of Public Service, and the Office of the Prime Minister signed an agreement for artificial intelligence training for the next three years earlier today.
This is part of the ‘Investing in Quality’ theme for Public Service Week.
This agreement, according to Chief Permanent Secretary Mario Cutajar, demonstrates the Public Service’s resolve to be strong and even to participate in the current revitalization.
This artificial intelligence training, according to Mr Cutajar, is part of the second phase of the renewal, as part of the new Public Service plan. This, it is said, will result in more skilled workers.
For public service employees, this signed pact will turn obstacles into opportunity.
Professor Alfred Vella, Rector of the University of Malta, discussed how this partnership can increase public servant quality and artificial intelligence. This arrangement is also expected to bring university researchers closer to public-sector personnel.
Professor James Calleja, MCAST’s Principal and Chief Executive Officer, spoke on how crucial artificial intelligence training is in the development of technology.
Carm Cachia, Executive Director of the eSkills Malta Foundation, described how the training begins with basic artificial intelligence and progresses to ethics.
