The Government of Morocco is aware that the development of technology and Artificial Intelligence is one of the strengths of young people. The program aims to increase the knowledge and interpersonal skills of the participants through soft skills training sessions in cutting-edge technologies such as Cloud Computing, 5G and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
