We are excited to share that for the first time, we are able to offer 10 scholarships for the ‘Become an AI Product Manager’ nanodegree on the Udacity online education platform through a partnership with Wiase Research Institute (Wiase).

Our IDEAS Program demonstrates our commitment to the responsible development of AI by creating more opportunities for underrepresented product managers to become fluent in AI concepts. This is just the beginning of a multi-phased plan to develop a collaborative ecosystem for the development of Responsible AI here in LA.
