Cloud Ace, a Google Cloud Platform™ (GCP™) Premier Partner, will harness its knowledge and experience providing GCP support services for AI, Machine Learning, IoT and billing, to a wide range of big and small businesses in a variety of industry fields, in order to support the implementation of a new curriculum in the college’s AI Systems Department.

There is no doubt that the need for personnel skilled in AI and cloud based technologies will continue to grow.

They will also be introduced to the open source machine learning library for software and production, TensorFlow™️, and gain practical skills which will inspire them to create AI solutions.
