CBSE to launch AI subject

National Edu News

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to introduce artificial intelligence as an elective subject to make school students well-versed in technologies.

The decision to introduce artificial intelligence as a skill subject was taken at a recent meeting of the board’s governing body. It was decided that the subject would be introduced in classes 8, 9 and 10 as a skill subject.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. Artificial intelligence is the ability of a machine to think, learn and perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition and decision-making skills. 

With technologies like artificial intelligence, data analytics and big data making a huge impact globally, it would be important for the board to modernise its curriculum to stay abreast of the latest developments, according to the governing body.


 If required, the board will also help in the capacity building of schools for the teaching-learning of the new subject from the next academic session.
