Microsoft launches initiative to train 100,000 Indian developers on AI 

Microsoft has unveiled a new plan to train 100,000 developers in India in the latest artificial intelligence (AI) technology and tools.

In a recent statement, the company introduced a month-long program named AI Odyssey. This initiative aims to provide developers with in-depth knowledge of AI technologies, aligning them with business objectives and empowering them to carry out vital projects successfully.

“With AI revolutionizing the way we work and live, India needs a skilled workforce that can use AI to solve complex problems and create value,” Microsoft said. “Through programs like AI Odyssey, Microsoft is offering opportunities for developers to build solutions for India’s growth and showcase their talent to solve real-world problems.” 

The tech giant based in Redmond, Washington, has been actively promoting increased adoption of AI in the country.

According to Puneet Chandok, President of Microsoft India, making the country’ AI fluent’ is a significant focus. Chandok stated that in 2024, Microsoft plans to collaborate with the government to train 3 million government officers with AI fluency.

Previously, the company partnered with Nasscom’s Futureskills initiative to equip one million students with AI skills.

“AI is the future of innovation, and India is leading the way with its tech talent,” said Microsoft India managing director Irina Ghose. “We welcome all developers to join us in creating meaningful AI solutions that will contribute to India’s economy.” 

The AI Odyssey program has two tiers. In the first part, developers learn to use Microsoft’s Azure AI services to create and deploy practical AI solutions. They gain access to resources and coding samples for hands-on experience.

Moving to the second level, participants undergo an inline assessment where they can earn Microsoft Applied Skills credentials.

Ghose emphasized that the Microsoft Applied Skills credential allows developers to showcase their proficiency and innovation in highly sought-after AI skills and scenarios.

This program welcomes participants of all experience levels and backgrounds, and completion is required by January 31, 2024.

Moreover, those who finish the program can win VIP passes for the Microsoft AI Tour in Bengaluru on February 8, as mentioned by the company.
