The IT giant Infosys has announced a three-year partnership with Cornell University for the purpose of training employees in emerging technologies such as blockchain, machine learning and human-computer interaction.
Following the collaboration, at least 3000 Infosys employees globally are expected to participate in the joint certification programme. The other employees will participate course-by-course.
“The Cornell University brand is synonymous with technology and talent, so we found a natural synergy between our organizations to improve workforce education,” said Tan Moorthy, executive vice president and Global Head of Education Training and Assessments.
This particular programme which will jointly be operated by Infosys and Cornell University will also impart skills in data analytics, design, systems thinking, critical thinking and engineering on Cornell’s eCornell virtual learning platform.
They will research technologies that are transforming the enterprise and creating new talent demand in the US. They will give special emphasis to Blockchain, software-defined networks (SDNs) and cloud computing.
