Flapmax unveils women in Artificial Intelligence (AI) Fellowship on Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI)


Flapmax, a leading innovator in artificial intelligence solutions, on Wednesday announced the launch of its Women in AI (WAI) Generative AI Fellowship program as part of its FAI Institute initiative .
The program aims to empower women in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and drive innovation in AI research and development, inclusive of underserved communities in emerging markets like Africa.
Applicants with interests in generative AI are invited to apply (https://www.FAI.Institute/wai) by April 8, 2024 to participate in the program’s 3rd cohort, starting May 2024.

“At FAI Institute, our mission is to advance human potential through cutting-edge research, education, and training programs built for the workforce of the future,” said Dr. Dave Ojika, founder of FAI Institute. “We recognize the immense potential of women in driving innovation and progress in the AI field. Through concerted efforts to provide access to quality training, mentorship, and opportunities, we are committed to empowering women to thrive in AI careers and contribute meaningfully to the industry.”

Since its inception, the FAI Institute’s WAI initiative has provided training opportunities for more than 800 women from over 24 countries. Supported by Intel and Microsoft, and in collaboration with Wentors, a global community dedicated to the growth of women in technology, the WAI initiative is expanding opportunities for underrepresented communities, especially women, through experiential learning and hands-on projects in real-world contexts. In celebration of International Women’s Day, WAI program graduates shared their experiences in a short documentary film released wednesday titled Breaking Barriers: Women Shaping the Future of AI (https://www.FAI.Institute/wai/wai-short-film).

“FAI Institute’s Women in AI training program is a wonderful initiative that has given women the opportunity to grow in artificial intelligence and data,” said Dorathy Simeon, Senior Programs Coordinator at Wentors. “In a world becoming increasingly aware of the possibilities that AI presents, such an effort becomes the more relevant than ever.”

This year’s WAI program, launching in May, includes a 4-week virtual course with hands-on labs, teaching industry tools for practical AI solutions. Participants will analyze large datasets and use machine learning libraries to develop AI models for business.
After the course, they are matched with 8-week AI practicum projects, mentored by industry experts.
