Microsoft aims to skill 2.5m in AI across SE Asia by 2025

Microsoft has announced a plan to train 2.5 million people in Southeast Asia in AI skills by 2025, partnering with governments, nonprofits, and businesses across Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. Microsoft's programmes will focus on creating an inclusive AI workforce, addressing the cybersecurity skills shortage, enhancing developer AI capabilities, and empowering nonprofits. The efforts extend Microsoft's ongoing commitment to closing the digital skills gap in the region, building on the success of its Skills4Jobs programme which has already engaged 1.7 million people. The programs are designed to bolster vocational education, enhance employability for underserved youth, and strengthen the regional tech workforce, particularly in AI and cybersecurity.
