Intel and Dell Technologies have partnered with the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) to create the AI Incubator Network as a part of Intel’s AI for Workforce program, which will design and build AI labs across the country utilizing the expertise and connections of America’s community college system. Each selected community college will be provided 12-month grants of $40,000 each to build out their AI labs.
In addition, Intel will be providing $400,000 in funding as part of its RISE Technology Initiative, Dell Technologies will be providing technical expertise to allow the 10 selected schools to teach students in-person, hybrid, or online, and AACC will support the implementation of the AI labs in colleges that choose to participate in this program.
“Building upon Intel’s partnership with the American Association of Community Colleges and Dell by establishing incubators for emerging technology education across the U.S. will provide greater access to critically needed technical skills and training in AI. This specialized program is a starting point for the next generation of U.S. technologists, engineers and inventors to expand their innovative thinking and go on to land careers in all sectors of the digital economy.”
— Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group
