One of the strategic thrusts of the University of Johannesburg (UJ) is
to lead Africa into the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The Institute for
Intelligent Systems (IIS) was established in 2016 within the University
to act as a catalyst towards the UJ Strategy for Global Excellence and
Stature (GES). IIS is one of UJ’s flagship institutes for Global Excellence
and Stature (GES 4.0).
The Institute deals with the development of multidisciplinary taught and online programs for postgraduate qualification and continuing professional development, for capacity building in the areas of machine learning, artificial intelligence, data science, Internet of Things (IoT), to name but a few areas.
