About the Course
Governments worldwide are working on creating comprehensive National AI strategies to create sustainable, inclusive and positive impact on its citizens, industries and overall societies. A skilled and competent workforce is the foundation for growth of any nation and industries in the AI world. An AI driven economy requires a new approach to a nation’s education system including ways to empower larger non-technical audiences with AI social and technical skills for real world applications.
India’s own National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence is built on the philosophy of ‘AI For All’. The approach is to leverage exponential technologies toward inclusive growth, develop population-scale AI solutions for societal needs and leverage India’s unique position to be a global leader for inclusive technologies. Further acknowledging the importance of AI, the National Education Policy – 2020 has also emphasized on preparing students for an AI driven economy by providing access to relevant skillset and toolset to make them ready for future.
In sync with the larger goal of enabling and empowering the next generation with AI skills, CBSE introduced AI as a subject in 2019 from class VIII and has since then extended it from class VI-XII. The aim is to demystify AI for students, equip them with the skill sets and the mind-set required for AI readiness and enable them to create meaningful social impact solutions as evidence of achievement.
To further add to the cause of national AI readiness, a new program – AI For All was launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi ji, on July 29th, 2021. This program is driven by the Central Board of Secondary Education in collaboration with Intel India and aims to increase public awareness about AI.
‘AI For All’ is a 4-hour, self-paced, micro learning program aimed to help demystify AI for general public. The program is divided into two sections: AI Aware, and AI Appreciate. Both sections can be completed in about four hours. Each section includes images and interactive activities with a short and easy quiz. Passing this quiz grants the participant a digital badge and a certificate that they can share on their social media accounts and tag #AIForAll. Participants can take this quiz as many times as they want.
