Microsoft is aiming to train about 15,000 workers by 2022 on AI skills

Microsoft is investing a lot of money on training people on Artificial Intelligence in partnership with the education provider General Assembly. The goal is to make sure that they train 15,000 people by 2022 so that there is an increase in people who have knowledge in Artificial Intelligence, machine learning along with data engineering and more.

This program will first train a total of 2,000 workers in the machine learning role. In the three years, they will be training a total of 13,000 workers with Artificial Intelligence related skills. Microsoft will be joining the General Assembly’s Artificial Intelligence Standards Board, with other companies. In the next six months, the Board will be helping in defining AI skills and develop assessment and also create credentials.

The training which has been organized by Microsoft will be conducted with people who are not skilled enough to use Azure in aerospace, manufacturing and elsewhere. The training will totally focus on the needs of the customer who are looking to use Artificial Intelligence.

The training will include Artificial Intelligence Talent Network that will help source candidates for a longer period of time. General Assembly will be helping with the assistance of connected campuses and the broader Adecco ecosystem to these jobs pipeline.

Microsoft has a vision for the job creators because of AI in the future. There will 133 million new roles created and this training will come in handy for people who will be taking them. The main focus is to make sure that software along with cloud customers can find people who have knowledge in working with Azure.

“As a technology company committed to driving innovation, we have a responsibility to help workers access the AI training they need to ensure they thrive in the workplace of today and tomorrow,” said Jean-Philippe Courtois, executive vice president and president of Global Sales, Marketing and Operations at Microsoft, in a statement. “We are thrilled to combine our industry and technical expertise with General Assembly to help close the skills gap and ensure businesses can maximize their potential in our AI-driven economy.”
