The fourth industrial revolution is one of the biggest challenges facing young people today. Sage’s FutureMakers programme provides hands-on experiences for young people aged between 13 and 17 to create solutions that combine the human element with machine intelligence. The programme aims to increase the understanding of artificial intelligence and the possibilities it entails, empowering and equipping young people to propose, design and implement innovative technology solutions to address serious social problems.
Design that aligns to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals
The programme trains young people in human-centred design aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and provides hands-on training in Machine Learning techniques such as image recognition, voice synthesis and natural language processing and the ethical principles to be considered while creating Artificial Intelligence-powered products and services.
Sage FutureMakers is now in its second phase, with the programme being launched to 500 young people in five countries.
Sage Foundation believes in engaging and educating the next generation of AI leaders in our rapidly changing world. Our goal is to inspire young people from under-served communities to engage in AI and AI education. We aim to address the challenges young people face due to a changing workforce, by giving them skills for jobs that don’t exist yet.
