Pathshala Nepal Foundation organised a two-day SEE AI EXPO 2023 in collaboration with ING Skill Academy.
The exhibition, held at the premises of Pathshala Pre-Uni, New Baneshwor, concluded on Saturday.
A total of 567 people attended the expo that was targeted towards recent SEE graduates and plus two level students.
The event featured a range of engaging booths, offering interactive learning experiences powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
The organisers, following the event, said that various activities and displays were presented to the participants including predicting future career paths, hands-on tech demos, and fun and interactive AI-based games.
The event, which was managed by the team at ING Skill Academy with assistance from volunteers and the administration of the Pathshala Pre-Uni Program, also included career counselling sessions.
Bhushan Luitel, Senior Skill Supervisor at ING Skill Academy, said that while some fear AI could replace human jobs, it will also create more new jobs.
“93 million new jobs will be created through AI by 2030,” said Luitel. “These jobs will span various industries and include roles such as machine learning engineers, data analysts, and business intelligence developers. This provides hope that the AI revolution will not lead to widespread job loss, but instead create new opportunities for skilled workers.”
Abisha Aryal, an attendee at the event, said that the event was able to showcase the vast potential of AI in the personal and professional lives of people.
“I was amazed to learn that AI is being utilised in diverse fields ranging from cybersecurity to game development,” Aryal said.
