Government Launches Free Online Course on AI with IIT Madras and NCVET

The AI for India 2.0 programme has been carefully selected in nine different Indian languages by GUVI.

Dharmendra Pradhan, the Union Minister of Education, Skill Development, and Entrepreneurship, unveiled AI for India 2.0. This new programme is a free online training course with a strong AI component. The programme is accredited by the National Council for Vocational Education and Training (NCVET) and IIT Madras and was created jointly by Skill India and GUVI.

GUVI is an education technology business founded by IIT Madras and IIM Ahmedabad with an emphasis on individualized learning. It provides online training, skill development, and employment opportunities. It imparts technical knowledge in many regional tongues. 

Notably learners can access the new course in nine different Indian languages. To join up for the free course, people need only visit GUVI’s official website. Learners will be questioned on their understanding of Java, coding, cyber security, and other topics when they sign for the same. However, individuals who are interested in learning might enroll in this course to have a deeper understanding of AI programming.

An IIT Madras-incubated firm called GUVI has launched this course with the aim of educating rural youngsters about cutting-edge technology like artificial intelligence. Leading academic institutions and business leaders will provide their experience as a part of the programme as a result of the partnership between Skill India and GUVI.

Pradhan said during the inaugural event that technology shouldn’t be restricted to one language and called for courses to be offered in more Indian languages. He saw this programme as an effort to break down the language barrier in technology education and prepare the nation’s children, particularly those in rural areas, for the future.

The government intends to increase the course’s appeal by making it a free online resource. The NCVET and IIT Madras accreditations will be used to ensure the course’s quality and applicability.
