Amazon wants you to work in AI. More specifically, they want to train you on the skills necessary to handle one of these jobs.
In a blog post on Monday, Amazon announced “AI Ready,” the company’s new initiative to give two million people access to free AI skills training by 2025. In total, the company is offering eight new classes, for free, for varying experience levels and purposes. In addition, AI Ready aims to offer a new generative AI course to more than 50,000 high school and university students. The company has also formed a new partnership with Code.org to teach students about generative AI.
But back to the free classes: Whether you’re a total beginner to the world of AI, or you’re an experienced person looking to boost your skills, Amazon believes it has a class for you in AI Ready. (There are more than 80 other AI classes and resources Amazon hosts on AWS, but not all of them are free.)
The classes range in length, experience level, and topic, and the list covers a variety of different use cases. I can imagine Amazon’s “Introduction to Generative Artificial Intelligence” course, for example, being useful for anyone looking to gain a baseline understanding of how generative AI works.
