AICTE, IIT-incubated Start-up to Train 10 lakh Indians in Coding, Aim to Set World Record

All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has partnered with an IIT Madras-incubated startup GUVI to upskill 10 lakh Indians in coding by a one-day free workshop known as ‘AI-For-India 1.0’. This occasion is anticipated to set the World Record for the most important coding workshop performed on-line. Anyone within the age group of eight to 80 years can participate within the occasion. It is scheduled to be performed on April 24. Registerations are open at This initiative is a part of GUVI’s co-founder Sridevi Arun Prakash’s mission to coach one billion Indians in synthetic intelligence.

In this workshop, individuals can be taught to construct a face recognition app utilizing Python from business specialists. This on-line coding workshop is anticipated to attract the participation of individuals from numerous backgrounds. All the individuals will achieve free entry to GUVI’s Python course that helps them perceive the ideas of the Python programming language. Further, world report occasion participation certificates and limitless entry to ‘CodeKata,’ a Coding skill-building platform, shall be provided to all of the individuals.

Dr. Buddha Chandrasekhar, Chief Coordinating Officer, AICTE, Ministry of Education, Government of India, who launched the initiative throughout a latest occasion, mentioned, “The Ministry of Education and AICTE want to give the best education and skills to all Indian students, as well as faculty and institutes. We have come up with an initiative along with GUVI that got selected for NEAT (National Education Alliance for Technology) to upskill 10 lakh students in Artificial Intelligence. Our collaboration will surely set a World Record.”

Kumar Vembu, Founder and CEO of GoFrugal Technologies, mentioned, “Automation freed us from lots of manual labor. The AI revolution will free us from data-driven and rule-based decisions. I congratulate GUVI on its effort to expose so many people to Artificial Intelligence and its potential. Once these people get started with AI, I am sure a significant percentage of them will invest more time and effort to become an expert. This initiative will not only help create a large talent pool for the industry but could also result in creating AI entrepreneurs. I wish GUVI and all the participants a huge success.”
