Today, we are proud to announce our newest initiative to expand students’ AI skills: the Intel® Edge AI Scholarship Program.
This new scholarship program, announced at the Intel AI Summit and the Future of Education and Workforce Summit in San Francisco, will empower professional developers interested in advanced learning, specifically deep learning and computer vision, to accelerate the development and deployment of high-performance computer vision and deep learning solutions. Computer vision and AI at the edge are becoming instrumental in powering everything from factory assembly lines and retail inventory management to hospital urgent care medical imaging equipment like X-ray and CAT scans. This program will teach fluency in some of the most cutting-edge technologies.
A data engineer is currently the most sought after tech job–– it had an 88.3% increase in postings over the past twelve months according to Burning Glass’s Nova platform. Why? The answer is hidden in the apps you rely on every day: data streaming.
Right now, you probably have a handful of apps on your phone that leverage real-time data––think ride-sharing apps, maps, and streaming services. And that’s just skimming the surface. Financial institutions use data streaming to monitor the stock market and hospitals use streamed data to monitor the health of patients. In a nutshell, data streaming is the process of sending data continuously rather than in batches, which enables millions of companies to create the products we use every day. This includes everything from web personalization and recommendation engines, to fraud detection and in-game interactions.

The most successful, fastest-growing companies are differentiated by one thing: they’ve transformed how their people learn and lead. This high-performing, maturing organizations encourage experimentation, iteration, and transparency to ensure new ideas are tested and outcomes are shared. According to a LinkedIn 2018 survey, employees are hungry for personal development opportunities at work: 94 percent of employees say they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their career but the number one reason employees feel they aren’t learning and upskilling is because they don’t have the time.
