The AI4CI (AI for Connected Industries) project aims to support European educational institutions in creating a new joint master’s degree program focused on the application of Artificial Intelligence to Connected Industries. The technologies adopted in Connected Industries, including programmable network devices, embedded systems, robots, and Industrial Internet-of-Things and Cloud computing, are rapidly evolving and present specific challenges in the integration of distributed and in-network AI algorithms. They include for instance extremely low-latency and high reliability environments, network synchronisation, constrained computing for AI execution, and deterministic execution guarantees. The goal of the project is to provide a cutting-edge, up-to-date master curriculum that covers all latest advances in the design and operation of AI systems integrated with Internet of Things, Cloud Networking, and Robotics technologies shaping the Connected Industry. The primary objective is to train at least 500 new experts in AI technologies for Connected Industries to reinforce EU industry and scientific ecosystem, and to graduate at least 250 among them. The joint AI4CI European master is designed to be deployed in 4 countries, at 7 universities, with the integration of 5 SMEs and 3 research centers supporting training activities and student professionalisation. With a two-years rich and complete program, AI4CI entails 14 Core Courses and 18 Elective Courses. It builds on a strong integration of academic and industrial expertises and provides remote teaching and tutoring of experimental projects: SMEs, research centers and academia collaborate in the 17 targeted Short-Term Courses on recent topics in the field with strong specific industrial connotation.
