The Course Increases Access to AI Training for Individuals with Diverse Professional and Industry Backgrounds

July 1, 2021, Kathmandu, Nepal – Fusemachines Inc., a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) services, talent, and solutions, today announced the launch of its newest AI training program, AI2Go Workshop. The four-week comprehensive online course will benefit professionals with no or limited background in computer science or technology, as well as those with related skill sets but no background in artificial intelligence. The program’s objective is to provide participants with fundamental AI training and to foster their ability to think creatively about AI, machine learning (ML), and their application in their respective businesses.

Eight live online sessions will be held, with practical programming lessons and guest lectures from AI experts, including renowned professors and scientists from the United States.

“Nearly two years ago, we launched our AI Shikshya for Nepal initiative with the goal of expanding access to high-quality AI education throughout the country,” said Sameer Maskey, CEO of Fusemachines. “As we continue to train hundreds of students in computer science and information technology in artificial intelligence, we want to acknowledge the widespread use of AI across all industries. We are particularly encouraged by the interest in AI training demonstrated by non-technical professionals in Nepal and recognize that in order to advance our mission of ‘Democratizing AI’ in Nepal, it is critical that we offer similar AI training opportunities to non-technical professionals as well. Only then will we be truly successful in Nepal in terms of advancing AI education and career opportunities.”

The course is accessible via desktop and mobile devices and will include additional reading materials that participants can access at any time during the program’s duration. By the end of the AI2Go Workshop, participants will have a solid understanding of machine learning, artificial intelligence, deep learning, classification, and regression, as well as a firm grasp on machine learning workflows, computer vision, natural language processing, dataset and AI model creation, as well as a working knowledge of Python required for building machine learning models.

“Despite growing awareness of AI and a collective urgency to jump on the digital transformation bandwagon, there is an obvious lack of knowledge and an appalling shortage of related talent,” said Bülent Uyaniker, Senior AI Researcher at Fusemachines. ”Through critical training initiatives such as AI2Go, we are enabling Nepal’s professional community to reskill, upskill, and apply their learnings in their current fields or pursue a purely AI-focused career.”

Fusemachines previously launched similar initiatives, including AI Shikshya for Nepal, ongoing strategic training partnerships with Nepal’s educational institutions, and certification programs such as Foundations in AI and MicrodegreeTM.
