[Interview - Le360] Mostapha Bousmina, President of the UEMF: How Morocco Becomes the 1st African AI Power


During an interview with the web media "Le360.ma", Pr. Mostapha Bousmina, President of the Euromed University of Fez (UEMF), described how Morocco is becoming the first African power in artificial intelligence (AI) thanks to the School of Digital Engineering and Artificial Intelligence (EIDIA).

Opened in 2019, EIDIA currently trains 700 students and will deliver its first diplomas in June 2024. It collaborates with various components of the university, integrating cutting-edge technologies for applications in health, agriculture, industry and security, with international partnerships and multilingual training.

Mr. President declared: “our vision was not to create a school on artificial intelligence above ground and disconnected from other disciplines. On the contrary, our school was designed in a holistic manner by integrating it into a protean environment combining training and research-innovation and it is based on several other structures of the University."
