Sysco LABS Sri Lanka’s ‘Project Summit’ programme recently celebrated the completion of training of its first batch of engineers.

‘Project Summit’ was launched in May this year to inspire and develop a new generation of future-ready engineers who can excel in the world of innovation and emerging tech. Batch 1 comprised undergraduates and graduates who were all mentored by senior talent at Sysco LABS to increase their technical knowledge and explore new technologies.

 The six-month programme acts as a platform that facilitates accelerated growth for recruits straight from university, enabling them to execute new tech concepts classified under ‘4th industrial revolution tech’ (4IR). During the training, participants received exposure and mentorship on 4IR concepts such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Virtual Reality and the Internet of Things. They were also familiarized with business domain knowledge, project management, best industry practices and processes to develop the right skills.

Participants focused on 4IR technologies, including AI, augmented reality and blockchain, that could transform the food services sector. Some unique solutions included AI-based warehouse waste management solutions, food freshness analyzers, demand forecasting systems, chatbots, blockchain-based loyalty reward systems and interactive browsing on E-commerce platforms using augmented reality. To complete the programme, participants had to not just submit new concepts, but instead, they had to work with different technologies to create minimum viable products of their ideas – leading them to explore both the theoretical and practical application aspects of their proposed solutions.

Sysco LABS Director Enterprise and Architecture Nishantha Hettiarachchi said: “Project Summit fosters a new generation of engineers ready to meet the demands of a tech-driven world.”

“It is built to showcase Sri Lanka’s ingenuity and how prepared we are as a nation to disrupt the future. Project Summit was designed to be a launch pad for fresh graduates to execute the new technologies they studied about in universities, in a real-world, working environment”.
