MIMOS, Microsoft collaborate to establish AI centre in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR - April 5 2019: MIMOS Bhd and Microsoft have jointly established an applied artificial intelligence (AI) centre in Malaysia, known as Centre of AI for Future Industry (CAIFI).

International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Darell Leiking said the strategic collaboration signified both parties’ commitment to accelerate the nation’s shift to Cloud, placing Malaysia on the road map to be a digital-first nation as strategised under the National Policy on Industry 4.0.

“The centre will deliver capacity development for rapid response government policy-making, and tools required to increase intelligence and leverage on modern technologies such as AI in Malaysia.

“It is hoped to create a culture of innovation and continuous learning to enhance the adoption of Cloud,” he said in a statement here, today.

Darell announced the partnership during his visit to Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington, in the United States as part of the Ministry’s trade and investment mission to the country.

The centre will be equipped with Microsoft’s Internet of Things (IoT) and AI programme, providing access to developmental tools for learning purposes.

All workshops, training and labs on AI and IoT will be conducted to help train entrepreneurs including small and medium enterprises and graduates from the finance and manufacturing industries to leverage the power of these emerging technologies.
