Anyone interested in the AI For All self-learning online course can sign up for free on CBSE academic site. The 4-hour open content resource is divided into two sections:

  1. AI Awareness (1.5 hours) 
  2. AI Appreciation (2.5 hours) 

The segment on AI Awareness provides an elementary understanding of AI, misconceptions around AI and its application potential. The AI Appreciation segment helps learners understand the key domains of AI, its impact across industries, and gets them started on building personal learning plans. At the end of each stage, participants will be given personalized digital badges that can be shared on social media. To ensure inclusive access, the program is available in 11 vernacular languages for anyone with digital access. The content is also compatible with various talkback applications to make it accessible for visually impaired people. 

The pandemic has accelerated India’s digital transformation and research suggests that emerging technologies like AI are crucial towards driving more resilience as well as economic growth.1 NITI Aayog's National Strategy for AI is built on the philosophy of 'AI For All' and focuses on leveraging AI for inclusive growth and developing population-scale AI solutions for societal needs. India’s National Education Policy 2020 also emphasizes preparing students for an AI-driven economy. As India strives to leverage AI for all and build a digital-ready foundation, it is essential to focus on demystifying AI for the wider population to help them understand how it can positively impact their lives. 

Intel is collaborating with governments and communities globally to build a digital-first mindset and expand access to the AI skills needed for current and future jobs. In India, the AI For All initiative is part of Intel’s corporate social responsibility efforts towards democratizing AI for all.
