How Our Students Can Help Your Organisation

Data is nothing without intelligence

It is vital to be able to explain how and why artificial intelligence works to make informed decisions. Our students are excellent at piercing the "black box" of AI models, explaining how they function to be able to identify their strengths and weaknesses. We train them to be critical and reach that bit further to fully understand the scientific background of any situation, allowing them to find new solutions to difficult problems. 

Industry Examples

Fighting Malaria

Our students have used data science to develop algorithms designed to function with a laser scanner to diagnose malaria in South Africa.
