Intel expands AI career education program to 18 community colleges

#artificialintelligence

The program aims to prepare community college students for careers tapping AI skills. Intel said Tuesday it's expanding a program that aims to educate tomorrow's engineers and technologists on the intricacies of artificial intelligence and help them find jobs in their chosen field. The AI for Workforce Program offers students courses on data collection, computer vision, AI model training, coding, the societal impacts and ethics of AI technology. Students who complete the program will be awarded a certificate or associate degree in artificial intelligence. The program began as a collaboration with an Arizona community college but is being expanded to 18 community colleges in 11 states through a partnership with Dell Technologies, which will provide guidance on how best to configure AI labs for teaching in-person, hybrid and online students.

The partnership will create a consortium offering support and infrastructure so that community college students can receive artificial intelligence training affordably and with fewer barriers. Intel and Dell have partnered with the American Association of Community Colleges to launch artificial intelligence incubators throughout the country. The 18-month initiative will utilize the expertise of both companies along with the knowledge and industry connections of the nation's community colleges. Because the demand for training in AI far outstrips higher education supply, community colleges could provide a critical link in the talent pipeline. The partnership will create a consortium offering support and infrastructure so that students can receive instruction affordably and with fewer barriers.

Intel, Dell and the American Association of Community Colleges launched the AI Incubator Network, which will build labs at 10 colleges around the U.S. Colleges can apply for $10,000 each to equip the physical lab and build artificial intelligence training programs. Applications are due Feb. 25. Michelle Johnston Holthaus, executive vice president and general manager at Intel, said in a press release that this specialized program is a starting point for the next generation of U.S. technologists, engineers and inventors. This latest workforce development project is part of Intel's AI for Workforce program that launched last year. Brian Gonzalez, executive director of government, partnerships and initiatives at Intel, said the new program makes AI accessible to novice learners.

Following an online pilot in the fall of 2020 with Maricopa County Community College District, Intel is expanding its AI for Workforce Program to include 18 additional schools in 11 states, including California, New Mexico and Michigan. With the expansion, more than 800,000 students can take part in a curriculum designed by the company, at the end of which they can earn a certificate or associate degree in artificial intelligence. The program includes courses on data collection, computer vision, model training, coding and AI ethics. In addition to designing the curriculum, Intel has provided training and technical advice to the college faculty involved in the program. Dell is also helping with technical and infrastructure expertise.

Arnav Bawa, a student in the artificial intelligence program at Chandler Gilbert Community College, has developed an AI application to interpret EEG brain wave scans. The application can help predict brain seizures, so a patient can take medication or prevent injury from falling.
