Coming of Age in the age of AI:

What will it be like to come of Age in the age of AI?

The first generation to grow up entirely in the 21st century will never remember a time before smartphones or smart assistants.

They will likely be the first children to ride in self-driving cars, as well as the first whose healthcare and education could be increasingly turned over to artificially intelligent machines.

What is it?i

This is a program directed at the young (both boys and girls) who are coming of age (turning 18) in the years to come. We are aiming at the age group of 18+-2, that is from 16 years to 20 years. 

A quarter of India’s 1.25 billion people are younger than 15, and every month, until 2030, nearly a million Indians will turn 18, raring for more education and employment prospects. 

This is about the same age group that pursues the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, the A levels and the Senior Secondary stage of the CBSE and other State Boards. Younger persons may not be able to benefit from the program.
