Intel announces a new AI initiative -AI Developer Education Program


Intel India at the AI Day conference announced a new initiative called AI Developer Education Program. This program is aimed at educating 15,000 individuals – scientists, developers, analysts and engineers – on AI technologies including deep learning and machine learning.

In order to boost adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the country via technical sessions and also use of ready-to-deploy platforms and tools for solution development, 60 programs will be hosted across the year. This will include roadshows, workshops,user group and senior technology leader roundtables.

“As India undergoes rapid digital transformation, the data centre and the intelligence behind the data collected will enable the government and industry to make effective decisions based on algorithms,” said Prakash Mallya, Managing Director, Intel South Asia.

“To make this happen, Intel is collaborating with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, Wipro, Julia Computing and Calligo Technologies, by enabling them with AI solutions based on Intel architecture,” he further added.

All this will cultivate into increased opportunities for AI usage and also eliminating entry barriers for developers, data scientists and students. In India, Intel targets e-commerce BFSI and telecom sectors across High-Performance Computing (HPC), big data, and Internet of Things (IoT), all of which are complementary to AI.

The company also plans to bring an AI research lab which will be dedicated towards pushing the forefronts of computing to explore architectural and algorithmic approaches.
