Google dedicates $1 billion to train workers for high-tech jobs
The world around us is changing rapidly and so does our nature of the job. We are entering in the 4th industrial revolution, which will ultimately lead to the rule of machines. Automation, AI, and robotics have potential to replace humans from their jobs.
Keeping that in mind, Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai has announced that Google will be investing $1 billion to train US workers who are working in technology-based workstations to be adjustable for possible transformation.
This investment will be used in Grow with Google which was announced recently at Pittsburgh, PA. This project will be functional for next five years with aim of training US workers in highly classified digital training hubs.
Sundar Pichai said,
“At Google, our mission is to make sure that information serves everyone, not just a few. A child in a school here in Pittsburgh can access the same information on Google as a professor at Carnegie Mellon. In the end, the internet is a powerful equalizer, capable of propelling new ideas and people forward.”
Google is committing $10 million to Goodwill as part of this step — the largest Google.org has committed to one company. This investment will be used to help launch the Goodwill Digital Career Accelerator, with the purpose of preparing the American workforce for high-tech jobs.
This step by Google is an example for other tech giants to help workers by training them in upcoming platforms.
The online training can be accessed by visiting Grow with Google Hub.
