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).
Intel India has collaborated with 40 academic institutions that are using AI technology for scientific research and 50 public and private organisations across e-commerce, healthcare, technology, defence, and banking and financial services, the company said on Oct 9, 2017, during its “Cloud Developer Day” event in Bangalore.
Prakash Mallya, MD for sales & marketing at Intel India, said “In April this year, we made a commitment at the India AI day, to democratise AI here by training 15,000 developers. Already as of today we have trained 9500 developers, students, and professors, across 90 organisations to ensure that India is not only AI ready but already delivering results.”
The move is reducing AI entry barriers for developers, data scientists and students through developer-focused events and ‘Code Modernisation’ workshops.
“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,” Mallya added.
The event was attended by more than 400 developers.
