A one month program for all:

Fee: Rs 2500/- + taxes

This course will be made  free for women on Women’s day ( 8th March 2019) /18th March 2019. Free for 250 women every month.

Like what the PM said for many other subsidies, we will hope that those who can afford this modest fee should join courses as fee paying students. Thus more women who are challenged in affording this fee can become AI aware.

Every month we will offer the program to 1000 students, in 4 concurrent Whatsapp groups. Those who have fee-waiver will not be identifiable within the groups. 

Everyone who reads/ or views all the posts and performs and submits the tasks assigned ( there will be 5 such tasks, one for each module and one Capstone Project that may draw upon the learning of all the 4 modules) will be given a certificate from LMP Education Trust. 

There are 4 modules in this program :

Module 1: What is all the excitement about AI?

Module 2: How does it work? 

Module 3: The nuts and bolts of AI

Module 4: AI for human well being 

Each module is transacted over a week ( 5 days)

There are 5 posts every day

Each post can be perused in about 15 to 18 minutes; it is therefore a 25  to 30  hour program
