Amazon has recently announced the launch of its new program called “AI Ready,” with the ambitious goal of training two million individuals in artificial intelligence (AI) skills by the year 2025. The tech giant aims to make AI education accessible to anyone interested in learning and believes that AI has the potential to transform our generation.
According to an official blog post by Amazon, “Artificial intelligence is the technology with the greatest potential for transformation in our generation. If we want to unlock its full potential and tackle the world’s most challenging problems, we must enable access to AI education for everyone who wants to learn.”
The “AI Ready” program offers a range of generative AI courses, covering topics such as project planning, machine translation, and language model building. Some of the materials are designed for individuals without a technical background, while others cater to programmers interested in learning about machine learning.
To further support the program, Amazon has pledged to invest more than $12 million to fund the education of over 50,000 high school and college students, allowing them to attend generative AI courses on the online learning platform Udacity. Additionally, in collaboration with Code.org, Amazon is working on creating an introductory curriculum unit that will assist students in creating their own AI-generated music videos.
Through “AI Ready,” Amazon aims to empower its employees to enhance their skills and train the next generation of AI enthusiasts and professionals for the future.
