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.
Udacity signs the White House Pledge to America’s Workers, funding 100,000 tech and analytics scholarships for workers in the United States.
Today, Udacity is announcing our Pledge to America’s Workers. Over the next five years, we will fund 100,000 Udacity tech and analytics scholarships for workers in the United States, collaborating with local leaders and private sector businesses to support workforce development and build local learning communities. Udacity’s scholarships will equip America’s workers with the skills they need to succeed in high-paying, future-proof careers in fields such as front-end web development, mobile app development, and data analytics.
Bertelsmann is funding 15,000 scholarships in Data, AI, and Cloud-Computing in partnership with Udacity, and we are proud to announce that applications are now open. As we shared earlier this year, this new scholarship program–part of a three-year commitment by Bertelsmann to fund 50,000 scholarships–is an expansion of our partnership and of our joint efforts to increase learning opportunities in emerging technologies to students across the globe.
Every day we come across many inspiring stories of our students succeeding in various fields. Some make us happy, some make us proud, and then there are some that are so remarkable they make us realize the profound impact our students can have on society.
We came across one such story recently of Mateusz Zatylny, a recipient of the Udacity Pytorch Scholarship and the Udacity Facebook Secure and Private AI Scholarship, who is now building an autonomous technology driven wheelchair along with a group of Udacians he met during the Pytorch Scholarship program. Mateusz is a patient of generalized Dystonia, a movement disorder that is not limited to a single part of the body. But that clearly didn’t deter him from achieving great things. He can’t control his wheelchair by himself, so he decided to build an autonomous technology driven wheelchair that could help him and many more to safely maneuver through daily life.
This new scholarship program, announced at F8, the Facebook Developer Conference in San Jose, will enable students to acquire skills in Federated Learning, Differential Privacy, and Encrypted Computation with the benefit of robust community support from Udacity. You will learn how to use the newest privacy-preserving technologies, such as OpenMined’s PySyft. PySyft extends PyTorch and other deep learning tools with the cryptographic and distributed technologies necessary to safely and securely train AI models on distributed private data while maintaining users’ privacy. Students will also have the opportunity to earn their way to a full scholarship to either the Deep Learning Nanodegree program or the Computer Vision Nanodegree program with Udacity.
