NxtWave, an upskilling platform for software careers, organised a virtual generative artificial intelligence (AI) mega workshop to empower aspiring tech students with emerging technologies. The workshop received an overwhelming response from the student community, with participants coming from over 3,000 colleges across India.

Generative AI is capturing the attention of major companies, including tech giants like Meta, Google, and Microsoft to implement the technology across business and product functions. McKinsey estimates that generative AI could add the equivalent of $2.6 trillion to $4.4 trillion annually, underscoring the immense potential and opportunities this field offers for skilled individuals.

Students were provided with valuable insights into key Generative AI concepts, empowering them with essential skills required in the AI era.

During the three-hour online workshop, students delved into multiple AI tools such as OpenAI APIs, Hugging Face, Gradio and Google Colab. The workshop adopted a hands-on approach, allowing participants to gain practical experience by building their very own AI applications. 

Rahul Attuluri, CEO of NxtWave, commented, "Advancements in Generative AI are happening at an incredible pace. It’s highly important for students to build skills in this emerging technology. Through this workshop, we equipped students with the understanding of the key Generative AI concepts and essential skills through hands-on projects.”

The generative AI workshop marks a significant milestone in NxtWave's commitment to empowering students with the latest technologies, making them job-ready and future-proof in the competitive tech landscape. Beyond theoretical knowledge, the students built and showcased their AI Avatars, symbolising their accomplishments within the NxtWave learning community.

Sharing her experience, one participant, Poojashree, said, "Learning a new AI platform which I didn't know about was truly exhilarating. I feel blessed to have had this opportunity and am eager to showcase my work across various platforms."

NxtWave's vision is to build India's largest online employability platform for tech careers, and it has been at the forefront of bridging the industry's skills gap. Founded by IIT Bombay, IIT Kharagpur, and IIIT Hyderabad alumni—Sashank Reddy Gujjula, Anupam Pedarla, and Rahul Attuluri—the company has helped thousands of learners secure positions in 1500 companies, ranging from fast-growing startups to Fortune 500 giants.
