IRIS2023: The 1st Information-Sciences Research and Innovation Symposium
Theme: Balancing Innovation with Responsible AI Development.
Date: 11 December 2023
Venue: Harare Institute of Technology
Emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, and cloud computing, are transforming every aspect of our lives, from the way we work and communicate to the way we interact with the world around us. These technologies have the potential to accelerate national development in several ways, from improving healthcare and education to boosting productivity and innovation.
This symposium will provide a platform for undergraduate students in computer science, software engineering, information technology, information security, and assurance to showcase their research and innovation projects related to emerging technologies. The symposium will also feature keynote speakers from industry and academia who will share their insights on the latest trends and developments in emerging technologies and their potential impact on national development.
The symposium aims to:
- Encourage undergraduate students to conduct research and innovation in emerging technologies.
- Provide a platform for students to share their research findings and innovations with the academic community, industry, and the public.
- Foster collaboration between students, academics, and industry stakeholders in the field of emerging technologies
- Promote awareness of the potential of emerging technologies to accelerate national development.
The symposium is open to all undergraduate students in computer science, software engineering, information technology, information security, and assurance programs at Harare Institute of Technology.
The symposium will cover a wide range of topics related to emerging technologies, including but not limited to:
- Artificial Intelligence
