Microsoft on Wednesday announced plans to train millions of people in India with skills in artificial intelligence, as countries and companies ramp up investment to future-proof workers and capitalize on the opportunities provided by a technology experts warn will kill off jobs and deepen inequality.

Microsoft will help equip 2 million people with AI skills in India by 2025, CEO Satya Nadella said at an event in Mumbai Wednesday.

The company said the training, which will be delivered in conjunction with governments, nonprofit and corporate organizations and communities, will help the future workforce “harness AI’s potential.”
The initiative will focus on training people in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities—emerging urban areas with smaller populations than major settlements like Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad—as well as rural areas, Microsoft said.

This includes partnering with national and state governments to give basic and advanced AI training to 500,000 students and job seekers, “in-depth AI technical skills training” for 100,000 young women and raising awareness of responsible AI use and AI-enabled careers for 400,000 students in schools in remote and tribal regions.

Nadella, a native of India who took the helm at Microsoft a decade ago, said the country is “uniquely positioned to make the promise of AI a reality,” adding that Microsoft is committed to helping “close the nation’s AI skills gap and create new opportunity.”
