The Central Board of Secondary Education has tied up with IBM to develop a course of Artificial Intelligence in the CBSE curriculum. Now CBSE is going to introduce Artificial Intelligence as an elective subject for class 9 to 12th. The CBSE has taken this decision to enhance education at the basic level and to prepare the students to keep speed with the IT revolution. The curriculum for the course is now being developed by the team of IBM. It will be specifically designed to create a better understanding for students at a very basic level.

According to Gaurav Sharma, Vice President of Bharat Software Labs, IBM, Presenting the subject to school children is a different thing instead of creating the curriculum for professionals. We have a probability to make a course to give the best effect by using a design-based approach to problem-solving with the help of Artificial Intelligence. The objective of the program is to develop a professional learning community for teachers in partnership with the industry. We will make sure that it provides collaborative global project opportunities for students and recognizes learning achievements through badging and recognition.
