KUALA LUMPUR: The new millennium is ushering in applications that involve artificial intelligence, computer coding and robotics, a skill rarely touched by conventional education.

With that in mind, Orbix Education Group has taken the initiative to open a new school at Pier8 in Gravit8, which begins its inaugural term in January 2021. The Pier8 mall is part of the integrated development of Gravit8, a 23-acre freehold mixed-use development in Klang South.

This new campus will be the third Orbix International school to be opened by Orbix Education and will also be the flagship ‘School of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.’ 

Orbix Education will be partnering with a large AI-based technology company in China, namely iFlytek to introduce the first in the country and possibly in the region, an AI syllabus for students aged six to 18 years. 

This comprehensive syllabus will cover areas on coding, machine learning, robotics and big data.

This curriculum will also run concurrently with its core curriculum of Cambridge IGCSE and Fieldwork Education (UK). The AI curriculum is designed in such a way that students are introduced to AI from a young age through games before getting them to design and create at the secondary levels. 

Orbix Education plans to introduce this AI syllabus in all schools in stages.

According to Mitraland Group chairman Datuk Johan Ariffin, the establishment of the campus was a significant milestone to the organisation and the surrounding communities.

Mitraland group deputy executive director Chuah Theong Yee further pointed out that the new Pier8 retail mall will have a total net lettable area of 150,000 sq ft and around 700 car parking spots.

It combines residential components and family-friendly facilities like the eight-acre Lakepark. Gravit8 is a community-driven hub, designed with communities in mind while offering a bustling and modern lifestyle. 

Also present at the signing were Abric Bhd chief marketing officer Govindan Nair, chief operating officer Suhaimi Sun Abdullah, Abric Bhd & Orbix Education chairman Datuk Albert Ong and chief executive officer Datuk Andy Khoo.
