Following its announcement of new AI features at the recent Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple has revealed that it will integrate AI-focused courses into its Apple Developer Academy.

The new curriculum aims to equip students and mentors with skills in AI technologies and tools, beginning this fall. This initiative will be available in Brazil, Indonesia, Italy, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, and the United States.

The expanded program will offer training to both current students and mentors, as well as Apple Developer Academy alumni.

Apple outlined that the courses will cover a range of AI-related topics, including Core ML training and AI model development.

The Cupertino company’s press release stated: “Beginning this fall, every Apple Developer Academy student will benefit from custom-built curriculum that teaches them how to build, train, and deploy machine learning models across Apple devices.

“Courses will include the fundamentals of AI technologies and frameworks; Core ML and its ability to deliver fast performance on Apple devices; and guidance on how to build and train AI models from the ground up.

“Students will learn from guided curriculum and project-based assignments that include assistance from hundreds of mentors and more than 12,000 academy alumni worldwide,” the press release added.

Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations, emphasized the importance of coding and AI in modern technology:

“At Apple, we see coding as a universal language and believe in empowering developers, creators, and entrepreneurs across the world with tools and technologies that will allow them to create phenomenal experiences. With the introduction of curriculum dedicated to AI and other new technologies, we’re excited to see what students will build to share with their communities and the world.”

The introduction of AI training in the Apple Developer Academy reflects Apple’s commitment to fostering innovation and preparing the next generation of developers.

By integrating AI into its curriculum, Apple aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills that they will require in order to leverage machine learning and AI technologies in their future projects.

This move also aligns with the broader industry trend towards AI-driven solutions, ensuring that Apple Developer Academy graduates are well-prepared to contribute to this rapidly evolving field.
