The AI Odyssey program, launched by Microsoft in January 2024, aims to skill 100,000 developers in India in the latest AI technologies and tools. This month-long program is accessible to all AI enthusiasts, regardless of their background or experience. It is structured into two levels: the first focuses on using Azure AI services to develop and deploy AI solutions, providing participants with resources, code samples, and guides. The second level involves an online assessment with interactive lab tasks, leading to Microsoft Applied Skills credentials. Successful participants also have the opportunity to attend the Microsoft AI Tour in Bangalore. This initiative by Microsoft, under the guidance of Irina Ghose, Managing Director of Microsoft India, is significant in empowering India’s tech talent and contributing to the country’s economy through innovative AI solutions.
