This year’s program places emphasis on using big data and augmented reality to foster future IT talents, the company said. Activities include running the company’s data analytics program “Smart SMA” to interpret big data, as well as using coding to create augmented reality contents.

The program also uses Lego robot cars to teach about self-driving cars, a key area in future technology development.

“We have improved the program to give the students hands-on experience of up-to-date technologies,” said the representative of LG CNS.

“LG CNS Coding Genius” program will be carried out in 22 middle schools across the nation this year.
