| Tuesday | 30th June, 2020
In June 2020, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, India and the UK India Tech Partnership team from the British High Commission carried out an independent study on AI skilling in India as a part of their joint initiative to accelerate AI skilling and adoption in India.
The study shed particular light on the need for a standardised AI curriculum for undergraduate and post graduate programmes.
Start-up founders also highlight avenues that exist for building awareness around core AI technologies and use cases of successful AI adoption.
Speaking about the findings of the survey, Shekhar Sanyal, Country Head and Director, IET India said, “We are very happy to have been able to lead this study jointly with the team at the UK India Tech Partnership.
This study was a first step in that direction and it has helped us build a baseline for AI skills in India.
