CBSE governing body recently decided to introduce artificial intelligence as an elective subject in classes 8, 9 and 10
In a bid to take technology education to a new front, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to add artificial intelligence (AI) as a subject for students.
Starting next academic session, the technology shaping the future of mankind will be taught to students of class 8th, 9th, and 10th as an elective subject.
In another decision, CBSE has decided to provide two sets of question papers to students: one easy and another one is standard question paper to test the mathematics skill of the 10th class student.
Students can opt for an easy test to avoid mathematics in their further studies, though they can choose Applied Mathematics in class 11 and 12 for their further studies.
If a student chooses for easier test and wants to opt for the standard test, then he/she will be able to do so in the month of July. The board will soon release the detailed circular to compile this proposal.
The reason behind of why CBSE is keen on introducing it
As AI is making a global impact, CBSE wants to keep up with the latest developments and make sure that students are well-versed with what’s happening in the sphere of technology.
A member of board’s governing body stressed on this stance and confirmed that AI would be taught as an optional subject.However, the syllabus for all three classes is yet to be drafted.
