It’s no secret that universities have a constant battle keeping their curriculums up-to-date with the fast-paced development of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation. Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) is disrupting this institutional norm by preparing their students for working life through company mentorship programs. Companies such as VoiceFoundry, who develop innovative Contact Center technologies for enterprise, are working with students bound for Computer Science degrees to develop innovative and real-world business solutions. More businesses are looking for novel ways to engage their customers and deliver better service. Graduates entering the workforce who can demonstrate technology skills in Automation and AI are undoubtedly valued. VoiceFoundry is proud to be a part of the development of these skills.
