Amazon Web Services (AWS) has launched seven new free and low-cost Generative AI courses for people of all roles and experience levels. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have been a focus for Amazon for over 25 years, and many of the capabilities customers use with Amazon are driven by ML.
Generative AI has the potential to revolutionize the way our customers operate by increasing their efficiency, productivity, and ability to innovate. As ways of working continue to evolve, the need for cloud expertise is on the rise. The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report 2023 indicates that more than 75% of organizations plan to adopt big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence in the next five years.
AWS is empowering learners, decision-makers, and AWS Partners to build their knowledge and skills with generative AI to help meet the demand for talent with the latest AI/ML technology.
Whether you’re a business leader interested in how generative AI can transform your business or a developer seeking to use generative AI to boost your productivity, AWS has training to help build their knowledge and practical skills with Amazon’s generative AI services. Training can be taken at your desired pace and the way you like to learn—from brief, on-demand videos to hands-on, interactive challenges in a secure, sandbox AWS environment.
