An IT company in India has said that it wants its entire staff to know how to use artificial intelligence (AI), CNN reported.

Wipro, which is one of the top providers of software services, will spend $1 billion on the improvement of AI capabilities over the period of three years. 

It will also include training its entire staff of 250,000 people across 66 countries. The tech giant also plans on conducting workshops “on AI fundamentals and responsible use of AI over the course of the next 12 months, and will continue to provide more customised, ongoing training for employees in AI-specialised roles.”

Wipro is a multinational corporation which specialises in IT and consulting services. The decision comes after generative AI has taken over every field of work. 

Wipro CEO Thierry Delaporte said: “With the emergence of generative AI, we expect a fundamental shift up ahead, for all industries.”

An interconnected software system will also be launched in a bid to unite AI with every platform and tool. 

AI has taken over the world in recent days with businesses laying off employees who can easily be replaced. 

An Indian startup laid off 90% of its workforce this week, saying the company had built “an AI-powered chatbot that could process customer service requests faster than employees.”
