The BOG members also called on the management to continue supporting the university's pioneering efforts to enrich knowledge, build capacity and invest in human resources via the provision of smart learning in sciences—supporting HBMSU’s commitment to envision the future, particularly in artificial intelligence, which is a driving force of development for the next decade.
