One of the leading EdTech companies, Vidhya.ai, announces that it has successfully trained 5000 students in artificial intelligence and machine learning. Out of the 5000 learners, 800 students have completed an advanced certification course in AI and ML.
The company plans to boost its efforts and train nearly one lakh students in artificial intelligence by 2024. The primary USP of Vidhya.ai is that it offers relevant training to learners in several local languages, which allows them to teach students from remote and previously inaccessible locations in India.
CEO of Vidhya.ai Navya Jain said, “Every student in India should get an opportunity to learn artificial intelligence irrespective of socio-economic background and language proficiency. We want to break the myth that one should be an IT professional and proficient in English to develop artificial intelligence-based applications.”
She further added that they think anybody can learn artificial intelligence and contribute to the AI revolution, regardless of their educational level and language competence. The training was provided by multiple industry experts that allowed learners to gain critical skills required to kick start their careers in the artificial intelligence and machine learning domain.
Gurgaon-based EdTech firm Vidhya.ai was founded in 2021 by Delhi University student Navya Jain. The company collaborates with universities and NGOs to provide top-notch training to students, especially from underprivileged sections of society. Vidhya.ai has held seminars, webinars, workshops, and training sessions to teach students about artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science.
Navya said, “Our talent lies in remote parts and villages of India. The students from these areas are closer to pressing issues such as environmental, agricultural, social, water preservation, and sanitation.” She added that they are trying to bring technology closer to the challenges and discover unique solutions to the problems through training students.
