To help manufacturing businesses and healthcare incorporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) into their work, software giant Microsoft has decided to establish a training hub in Louisville, US.

According to top officials in Mayor Greg Fischer’s administration, the company plans to hire four “fellows” per year from the Louisville community who will learn AI skills through the company’s proprietary curriculum, web portal wdrb.com reported on Thursday.

The initiative would also focus on other technologies like Internet of Things (IoT) and data science as well.

The deal requires Metro government to support and promote the project, but no public money is involved.

Louisville officials added that the project would be “entirely complimentary” and not duplicative of a recently announced partnership between the University of Louisville and IBM focused on technology training, the report said.
