Microsoft AI Teach is a capacity development program aimed to develop & enhance the ASEAN Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) landscape by providing educators and students with practical AI skills, fostering innovation through hackathon activities, and creating a pipeline of AI-ready graduates for industries.

The state of AI and its opportunities

  • The potential of artificial intelligence extends beyond its coexistence with humans and hopes to contribute to a more sustainable future. In recent studies, the ASEAN region faces difficulties in achieving sustainable development due to the region’s unpreparedness in utilising AI advancements to forward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • AI skills are increasingly essential, with the World Economic Forum highlighting their importance in corporate training strategies and noting that around 6.6 million workers in ASEAN will need to update their skills due to AI advancements.
  • Thus, Microsoft Philanthropies is focused on upskilling individuals for the AI-enabled economy, targeting capacity building across non-profits, workforce organizations, education institutes, and government entities, with a goal to reach 10 million people globally.
