Microsoft India plans to train 5 lakh youth in artificial intelligence across the country over the next three years and set up AI labs in 10 universities.

At Media and Analyst Days 2019 held recently in Bangalore, where the company pledged to build a bridge and feel the skills gap and enhance employability through its intelligent Cloud Hub programme.

The company would also upskill 10000 developers in emerging technology areas. Microsoft AI today is fuelling digital transformation for over 700 customers and 60 percent of customers are large manufacturing and financial services enterprises.

Microsoft said it is seeing faster transformation across businesses in India and that is resulting in a sharp rise in demand.

Microsoft also started Intelligent Cloud Hub Program to equip research and higher education institutions with AI infrastructure, build curriculum and help both faculty and students to build their skills and expertise in cloud computing, data sciences, AI and IoT.

“We believe AI will enable Indian businesses and more for India’s progress, especially in education, skilling, healthcare, and agriculture. Microsoft also believes that it is imperative to build higher awareness and capabilities on security, privacy, trust, and accountability. The power of AI is just beginning to be realized and can be a game-changer for India,” said Anant Maheshwari, President, Microsoft India.

Maheshwari said organizations in India are catching up fast.

Microsoft India has created four pillars – enabling digital transformation, building coalitions for responsible innovation, bridging the skills gap and enhancing employability and creating sustained social impact.
