Intel and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has achieved a new Guinness World Records™ title for the most users to take an online artificial intelligence (AI) lesson in 24 hours. The record was set after delivering a virtual lesson focused on demystifying the impact of AI and key considerations around its use to 13,000 students from class 8 and above between October 13th and 14th. The training was part of the ongoing AI For Youth Virtual Symposium organized by Intel and CBSE.

Dr. Biswajit Saha, Director, Trainings and Skill Education, CBSE, said,“I congratulate CBSE and Intel on their commitment to nurturing the right AI-related skillset and mindset among school students under the AI For Youth program, and setting a world record along the way.” Governments worldwide are working on creating comprehensive national AI strategies to create sustainable, inclusive and positive impact on citizens, industries and overall societies; the AI skill crisis is recognized as the biggest barrier for wider adoption and growth.Intel and CBSEhave been working together to help close this gap by increasing the pace of AI integration in India’s education system.
