An incredible morning as we launched our Center of Excellence in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. A new innovative hub designed to harness the creativity of students and empower them to be ready for whatever the future holds. Honored to have with us @gems_education Founder and Chairman Mr. Sunny Varkey, CEO Mr. Dino Varkey and special guests, alongside our Superintendent/CEO Mrs. Tammy Murphy as they cut the ribbon and opened the door to infinite possibilities for our students. Our gratitude to all of our remarkable students who took part this morning as they welcomed our guests and showcased the spaces. #leopardpride #AiXDAA #innovation #ai #robotics #internetofthings #machinelearning @khdadubai @dubaifuture
The GEMS Dubai American Academy Center of Excellence has a range of cutting-edge technologies such as Mixed Reality Zone featuring Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality (MR), and Augmented Reality (AR) manufactured hardware from Facebook, Microsoft and HTC, with software like Unity 3D. The Center also features a Self-Driving Car, an autonomous customized Renault Twizy fully electric car.
In the Robotics segment, the Center showcases the Baxter Robotic Arm, a collaborative research robotic arm, capable of advanced facial recognition and machine learning using industry grade ROS (Robot Operating System) and Python coding; and Assembly Line Robotic Arms, a Dobot Magician robotic arm industry 4.0 setup, mimicking an assembly line using varied end effectors such as grippers, suction cup as well as laser engravers.
The Center of Excellence is founded on the research that 65% of the jobs needed in 10 years’ time do not exist yet. The Center of Excellence for AI and Robotics will ensure students are fully equipped with the skills, expert guidance and grasp of emerging technologies required to prepare them for a radically changing world as well as for jobs of the future.
