Session Presentation: GamaWorks.ppt | OpenDiscussion.ppt

2. Introduction to Technology Management session

Though it was somehow an advanced topic for students in their first years, It was such a very interesting session. Eng. Tarek gave a great overview on the strategic importance of innovation and technology in business strategy as well as of the many different challenges facing managers responsible for the long term development of their business and gaining competitive advantage.

Session Presentation: N/A

3. Artificial Intelligence session

This was clearly the most interesting session to me and to the whole attendees. I had declared it as a surprise at first and showed it later because I knew it is going to be a marvelous session. Eng. Islam gave a great overview of Artificial Intelligence and its approaches, tools, applications, and ending the session with a real running application “Eye Mouse” (Controlling the mouse movement and clicks using your eye).

Session Presentation: AI.ppt

4. Introduction to TopCoder workshop

This was the only workshop this day. I chose that topic due to its importance, being me an old member of TopCoder and having some good experience with it. Hopefully, I could give a good overview on it.
