WISE Accelerator Program Is Changing the Future Of Personalized Knowledge


A World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) Accelerator program alumni – OBRIZUM® – has won first place in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Innovation of the Year category of the Digital Leaders DL100 list.

Digital Leaders is a nationwide program for promoting effective, long-term digital transformation across government, industry, and charities.

Formally known as CamBioScience Ltd., the UK-based technology company OBRIZUM® is a cloud-based adaptive eLearning platform. Powered by deep proprietary AI technology, it allows organizations to automatically create, deliver, and monitor adaptive online learning and development programs on a global scale.

Stavros Yiannouka, CEO, WISE, said: “The world is facing the biggest need and demand for learning and development, with demand for students increasing and employee expectations shifting. The potential to collect and use relevant data in the EdTech space has yet to be fully realized.

“We at WISE believe that the OBRIZUM® team is helping the global education community harness the power of AI to provide adaptive learning inside and outside the classroom.” Dr. Chibeza Agley, CEO, OBRIZUM®, said: “With OBRIZUM® you can create, deliver, and monitor cloud-based education and training programs faster than ever before, in a way that is personalized to the learner in real time, and measure a clear return on learning.”

WISE, an initiative of Qatar Foundation, opened submissions for the 2019-20 edition of the Accelerator program in April, with the initiative commencing at the upcoming Summit taking place in Doha in November 2019. The program aims to support innovative education technology initiatives that show high potential for scalability and positive impact.
