Artificial intelligence training is coming to Stark State College.
The Jackson Township-based college with satellite locations in Akron and Canton is one of 15 community colleges nationwide — and the only Ohio college — to be awarded a $40,000 grant to create an AI incubator to give students the technical skills they need to use artificial intelligence in the workforce.
AI is the technology that can emulate aspects of human learning, such as a chatbot that can respond to a user’s question like a human would.
“We were really surprised and really excited about the opportunity to start looking into this,” said Rene Eneix, assistant dean of the Business, Engineering and Information Technologies division at Stark State who was part of the grant application process.
