The African Center of Excellence in Information and Communication Technologies (CETIC) is a training and research center created within the National Advanced Polytechnic School of the University of Yaoundé I by the Government of Cameroon with the assistance of the World Bank. It is made up of a network of partner and associate institutions in Africa and outside the continent. It also pools lecturers from academic and professional institutions in Cameroon, in the sub-region and in prestigious institutions across the world.
Excellence in pedagogy shall be achieved through constantly improving quality evaluation and improvement procedures, with the prospect of international certification of the training programs.
CETIC is developing a pedagogic hosting and training policy for young lecturers. In addition to senior lecturers, students shall benefit proximity supervision by Post-doctorate fellows and Tutors (graduate doctorate fellows).

Alfred received a Ph. D. in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Illinois (Champaign-Urbana) and continued as Research Professor at the Biological Computer Laboratory there working on Neural Networks, Cognition, Population Dynamics and Models of Complex Nonlinear Systems. He then held senior research positions at IBM where he developed a Mathematical Model of the Ear(Cochlea) (TIME Nov. 74) and later Collision-Avoidance Algorithms for Air Traffic Control (3 USA patents). Concurrently he had joint appointments at UCLA, USC, Technion and Ben Gurion University. Since 1995 AI is Professor at the School of Mathematical Sciences of Tel Aviv University. He was elected Senior Fellow at the San Diego Supercomputing Center in 1996, Distinguished Visiting Professor at Korea University in 2008, and National University of Singapore in 2011. He invented and developed the multidimensional visualization methodology of Parallel Coordinates for which he received numerous patents and awards. His textbook on “Parallel Coordinates: VISUAL Multidimensional Geometry”, was published by Springer and praised by Stephen Hawking among many others.
