What a great start to 2019 it is already, hearing the news that CBSE is to introduce artificial intelligence (AI) courses in classes 8 -10! We are so pleased to hear that steps are being taken to bring technology to kids, something we at Yantrah are extremely passionate about.
While this will be an elective subject, this is still a step in the right direction, with both children and education winning! The impact of this move is huge with over 20,000 CBSE schools in India.Giving children this exposure will help keep them relevant in this age of technology.
So what exactly is AI?
In a nutshell it is the 'ability of a machine to think, learn and perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence'. Think, computers thinking for themselves and making decisions based on the data it has like all the AI powered smart assistants we see today; such as Siri and Alexa.
Stay tuned to find about about what we at Yantrah are working on to bring AI into classrooms.
Exciting times ahead!
