For individuals interested in pursuing careers in conceptual artificial intelligence, Amazon is offering free educational opportunities and scholarships. Recently, the company introduced three initiatives aimed at supporting both employees and students in gaining knowledge about emerging AI technologies and business concepts.

Moreover, advancements in conceptual AI have the potential to prompt businesses to make decisive decisions and act promptly.

Under the program “AI Ready,” Amazon will provide the following benefits:

  • A set of eight new, no-cost courses focusing on artificial intelligence and conceptual AI.
  • Through Amazon Web Services (AWS) Innovative AI fellowships, over 50,000 high school and university students globally will have access to a new generative AI course on Udacity.
  • Collaboration with the nonprofit organization Code to educate students on conceptual AI.

Comprehensive Training

The initial eight new complimentary programs cater to high-demand roles for business leaders, non-technical professionals, developers, and technical staff.

Furthermore, I highly recommend enrolling in one of Amazon’s comprehensive AI courses, which I personally completed last weekend.

The 80 free and affordable generative AI courses offered through AWS are complemented by these new programs.

Developers and technical professionals can take advantage of the following complimentary courses:

Non-technical professionals can benefit from the following courses:

Innovative AI Scholarships

Through the Generative AI Scholarship program, AWS will award $12 million in Udacity scholarships to over 50,000 high school and university students from underrepresented and underserved communities worldwide.

Is your company also in need of a Chief AI Officer?

The new Upwork program, “Introducing Generative AI with AWS,” delves into conceptual AI concepts and includes a practical project. Eligible individuals can access this program for free. Upon successful completion, students will receive a certification from Edu.

Collaboration with Script.com

Lastly, Code and Amazon Future Engineer have joined forces once again. Students will be challenged to create their own electronic music video using tracks from artists like Miley Cyrus and Harry Styles. In the Hour of Code Dance Party: IoT Edition, participants can program the online dancer’s movements and use AI to generate animated backgrounds with emojis.

The aim is to educate students about large language models and demonstrate how they are utilized in predictive analytics to generate text and images.

Additionally, Executives are encouraged to assess the benefits and risks associated with conceptual AI for software professionals.

During Computer Science Education Week on December 4–10, Hour of Code will debut for students and educators from kindergarten to 12th grade. AWS has also granted Code $8 million in AWS Cloud technology credits to support Hour of Code.

As generative AI continues to revolutionize the business landscape, acquiring the necessary AI skills is increasingly popular as a promising career path. According to research conducted by AWS and Access Partnership, 93% of companies plan to implement AI-based systems in the next five years.

While 73% of businesses have identified hiring individuals with AI skills as a top priority, many struggle to find suitable candidates. It is anticipated that professionals with the requisite skills will command salaries up to 47% higher than their counterparts.
