Asia Pacific College to develop certified professionals for the automated workplace
Digital automation is leading the transformation of the workplace brought about by unprecedented advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, big data and the Internet of Things. Two major challenges are the potential dislocation of the workforce as a result of automation and the growing demand for talent to realize the many opportunities arising from digital automation.
Asia Pacific College (APC), a non-profit educational collaboration of IBM Philippines and SM Foundation, is at the forefront of producing graduates who fulfill the demands of the information technology (IT) industry. In cooperation with UiPath, a leading robotic process automation (RPA) company based in Singapore, APC would be the Philippine partner under UiPath’s Academic Alliance program that aims to prepare 50,000 Asean students and professionals for the automated workplace of the future.
