Nearly 200 students from 10 universities in Japan will participate in the “Industry Lecture” program organized by FUNiX Japan on May 25, 2021. The event attracts a lot of attention by the appearance of a special speaker, Mr. Le Viet Gia Khanh, Developer Advocate from Google Japan.
Industry Lecture is FUNiX Japan’s major event series this summer, organized for Japanese technology students and open to audiences interested in new technologies such as AI, Machine Learning, IoT, Data Science, Blcokchain… The program is organized based on the format of a lecture, which speakers (who are experts from the field) share their knowledge and inspirational career path stories with audiences. Unlike conventional lecture programs, Industry Lecture focuses on providing knowledge and information on how new technologies are being applied in the real world of businesses. At the same time, this is also a bridge to create opportunities for Japanese students in general and FUNiX students in particular to connect with leading technology experts.
In the first event of the series, the Google Developer Advocate will bring to the audiences the case studies of Google’s research into AI and its application to real-world products by using real-world examples. Besides, the story of his career, from someone with no IT background to an AI engineer at Google, will be a much-awaited part of the event. Le Viet Gia Khanh is an expert in machine learning, application/web development, and ERP. He has worked at Google since 2016 after graduating from Tokyo University. Besides, he is an active speaker of machine learning of “Tensorflow,” a YouTube channel with more than 3 million subscribers.
“Being established by the industry, we are fully aware of the importance of industry connection to the career development of young students. We hope that students attending will receive useful information from industry experts and take an extra step in preparing for their future careers.” – Mr. Hoang Van Cuong, Director of FUNiX Japan, shared about FUNiX’s desire when organizing a series of Industry Lecture events.
