“Artificial intelligence (AI) is being widely recognised to be the power which will fuel the future global digital economy. India’s AI strategy identifies the AI as an opportunity and solution for inclusive economic growth and social development.”

To make India’s generation ‘AI-ready’, the board is introducing the AI as an optional subject for Class IX and X from the 2019-2020 session onward.” 

 This is what CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has stated in a latest announcement.

AI would be an elective subject for the students of Class XI and XII, however the board has mandated the schools to start an “Inspire Module” of AI from Class VIII itself. 

Detailed notification would follow later.
