#artificialintelligence

Udacity, the education platform focused on helping workers gain skills they need for great careers in tech, has partnered with IBM Watson, Didi Chuxing and Amazon Alexa to offer a new nanodegree in artificial intelligence, the companies announced today at the IBM World of Watson conference. IBM Watson is co-developing the curriculum of the course with Udacity. Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing intends to hire students who successfully complete the nanodegree, as does IBM. And Amazon Alexa is serving as an advisor to Udacity in developing the new AI nanodegree. According to Udacity's founder Sebastian Thrun, who previously started Google's innovation shop Google X and its self-driving car initiative, the new AI nanodegree will be for students who already have a level of mastery in software development.

Udacity is partnering with IBM Watson, Didi Chuxing, and Amazon for a new "Nanodegree" program. Artificial intelligence, the machine learning technology that allows "smart" machines to take over human tasks like driving cars or ordering pizza, is quickly becoming the go-to technology for many industries to hire talent for, including health care, auto, and finance. Research firm Markets and Markets estimates the AI market will grow to more than $5 billion by 2020, given the rising adoption of AI across these industries. That's why online education company Udacity is debuting a new way for workers to learn skills needed to be experts in developing artificial intelligence for the likes of IBM and others. Udacity originally launched "Nanodegrees" to train people hoping to land technical jobs, such as software developing.

When it launched, the Udacity Artificial Intelligence Nanodegree program became a kind of landmark in this history of AI. There was no precedent for the program's groundbreaking combination of content, platform, partners, and services. That simply did not exist before. The first term of students to enroll and start the program got to experience something genuinely new. They were risk-takers in every sense of the term.

At Udacity, we believe applications of artificial intelligence will bring transformative change to all industries, and not in some distant science-fiction future--we are seeing rapidly growing demand for AI-related skills right now, and new artificial intelligence jobs are emerging every day. This is exactly why we created our recently announced Artificial Intelligence Nanodegree program. Many of these jobs are still very new however, and we've learned from our program applicants--who already number in the thousands!--that So we took it upon ourselves to answer this question. To begin, we needed concrete data.
