Amazon to train 2 million people in AI skills for free by 2025


According to the US online retailer Amazon.com Inc.'s official blog, the program, called AI Ready, will be available for free and will train two million people worldwide in artificial intelligence (AI) skills by the year 2025.

The initiative entails growing the number of free AI training programs that are already in place while also initiating new projects for adults and youth.

In particular, Amazon will introduce the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Generative AI Scholarship program, which will reach over 50,000 students and high school students, as well as eight free online courses on artificial intelligence (AI), including generative AI, for representatives of technical and non-technical professions.

"If we want to unlock the full potential of AI to solve the world's toughest problems, education in this field must be made accessible to everyone who wants it," the business wrote on its website.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon is launching the new program in the midst of fierce competition from Google, Microsoft, and other companies for talent.
