Artificial intelligence research is the “in” thing these days, in which big companies like Google and Microsoft are at the forefront. Because of this trend, Udacity is planning to start offering a nanodegree in artificial intelligence.

Udacity will be partnering with IBM Watson, Didi Chuxing and Amazon Alexa. IBM Watson is co-developing the nanodegree curriculum with Udacity while Didi Chuxing, a Chinese ride-hailing company, will hire students who will successfully complete the course. Amazon Alexa’s role will be to serve as advisor to Udacity in developing the AI nanodegree, reports TechCrunch.

The new nanodegree will be for students who already possess a level of mastery when it comes to software development, according to Udacity founder Sebastian Thrun.


According to a blog post written by Rob High, vice president and chief technology officer of IBM Watson, this nanodegree will teach how to build platforms or apps through game-playing and search, logic and planning, as well as computer vision and natural language processing, among others.

The Udacity AI nanodegree will be will be offered in early 2017 with two 13-week terms.

Other organizations that offer courses related to artificial intelligence include EdX, Coursera and other edtech platforms. Alfred Bayle
