This is a special day for me, because today I'm once again here at my old high school, but not as a student, just a science enthusiast and businessman who is proud to say he has succeeded. I owe this to, among others, education in this school and the enthusiasm of the teaching staff. I know how important it is to support young people in the pursuit of goals and that is why, on behalf of Synerise, together with our excellent partners, we are launching our training program on artificial intelligence today. Together we will help to educate the citizens of tomorrow, because AI is the future.
Jarosław Królewski, CEO Synerise.
We see that the future is happening today ... and we need to prepare ourselves efficiently, as a company and as a society. And it is the youngest who will bring us this future.
Karol Półtorak, Vice President of the Board of CCC.
New technologies are changing the world, and with it the employment market is also changing. Thanks to artificial intelligence, new professions will be created, and our children will perform professions that do not exist today. We are happy that we can be part of this unique curriculum, thanks to which we will help children and youth to acquire the skills necessary to perform tomorrow's professions.
