IT giant Microsoft on Thursday (13 June) had announced the opening of digital labs in collaboration with 10 higher education institutions in India to aid the skill development initiatives in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Times of Indiareports.
BITS Pilani and Indian School of Business in Hyderabad are among the institutions that are part of the three-year programme in which Microsoft will provide infrastructure, curriculum and content, access to the cloud, and AI among other kinds of support.
The move would enhance the institutional setup in India to come up with courses and choices that will help students to acquire the required skills relevant in the AI era.“As AI becomes mainstream, organisations will require talent with skill sets that are very different from those existing now.
Educators and institutions are integral to the skilling revolution taking root in the country,” Microsoft India President Anant Maheshwari said.
BML Munjal University, Kalpataru Institute of Technology, KL University, Periyar University, Karunya University, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, SKVM (NMIMS) and Trident Academy of Technology are the other institutions that are covered under the programme.
