An Indian IT company has said that it wants its entire staff to learn how to use artificial intelligence (AI). CNN informed of.
Wipro, which is one of the top providers of software services, will spend $1 billion on improving AI capabilities over a period of three years.
This will also include training its entire staff of 250,000 people in 66 countries. The tech giant also plans to conduct workshops on AI fundamentals and responsible use of AI during the next 12 months, and will continue to provide more customized, ongoing training for employees in AI-specific roles.
Wipro is a multinational corporation that specializes in IT and consulting services. The decision comes after generic AI has taken over every field of work.
Wipro CEO Thierry Delaporte said: “With the emergence of generative AI, we expect a fundamental shift for all industries.”
An interconnected software system will also be launched to unify AI with every platform and tool.
In recent times AI has taken over the world and businesses have laid off employees who are easily replaceable.
An Indian startup laid off 90% of its staff this week, saying the company has “built an AI-powered chatbot that can process customer service requests faster than employees.”
