Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Dubai is supporting the fifth Smart Data Summit as a networking sponsor.
The summit will be held on April 17 and 18 at Atlantis, The Palm.
According to a press statement, the institute will present its proposed 'Master of Science in Professional Studies: Data Analytics' programme at the event.
“The programme will give participants the ability to help organisations increase efficiency of operations and gather and interpret data more efficiently.
"The programme is carefully designed to cater to all levels of data analytics: including creating a strategy and vision for the organisation towards big data, managing and securing the data, build appropriate infrastructure for data analytics, data analysis and presentation for intelligent decision making. It will also discuss how data collection and analysis is used for emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual realities, robotics, and machine learning," the statement said.
The programme has been designed with the help of Smart Dubai and Dubai Data as well as other international organizations.
It will be first of its kind in the UAE and will cater to working individuals, the statement said.
