In today’s era of increasing reliance on Artificial Intelligence, possessing AI skills has become essential for career growth. To ensure accessibility of AI skills to all, Amazon has launched a noteworthy initiative called ‘AI ready’, offering free educational courses on generative AI. Amazon’s objective behind this initiative is to provide “critical skills” to individuals. Let’s delve into the details of these complimentary generative AI courses.
Artificial intelligence courses created by Amazon
Notably, Amazon has already offered AWS-based AI training programs, but now it has added 8 free courses. According to Amazon, 21 million people have AWS cloud computing skills through its various programs. Now, Amazon aims to have 2 million users benefit from its AI courses by 2025.
