Intel India trains 9,500 in AI tech

Intel India has trained 9,500 developers, students and professors across 90 organisations in the past six months in the emerging field of artificial intelligence (AI).

It has collaborated with 40 academic institutions that are using the technology for scientific research and 50 public and private organisations across e-commerce, healthcare, technology, defence, and banking and financial services, the company said this week during its Cloud Developer Day event in India, which was attended by more than 400 developers.

The move is reducing AI entry barriers for developers, data scientists and students through developer-focused events and Code Modernisation workshops.

Prakash Mallya, Managing Director-Sales and Marketing Group, Intel India, said: "In April this year, we made a commitment at the 'India AI Day', to democratise AI in the country by training 15,000 developers and engage with not just businesses, but also the government and academia to enable the adoption of this increasingly talked about technology.

"Today, after six months, we can proudly say that we have worked with 9500 developers, students and professors, across 90 organisations to ensure that India is not only AI ready but already delivering results."
