Apple Developer Academy Introduces AI Training for Students and Alumni

Apple has announced an expansion of its educational efforts by integrating AI training into its Developer Academy programs.

Starting this fall, all students and mentors at Apple Developer Academies will receive training on AI fundamentals, with alumni also eligible to participate. The training aims to equip participants with the skills to build, train, and deploy machine learning models across Apple’s suite of devices.

The curriculum will delve into various aspects of AI technologies, focusing on Core ML for enhanced performance on Apple devices, and providing detailed guidance on constructing and training AI models from the ground up. This educational initiative will be rolled out to thousands of students and alumni across Apple’s 18 Developer Academies located in Brazil, Indonesia, Italy, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, and the United States.

Additionally, following the recent announcements at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), new technologies and APIs have been made available, which will further aid students in app development.

Among these new tools is Swift Assist in Xcode 16, designed as a comprehensive aid for developers’ tasks, allowing for experimentation with new ideas. Swift 6 also brings enhancements aimed at improving code clarity and simplifying the complexities of concurrent programming.

Susan Prescott, Apple’s Vice President of Worldwide Developer Relations, commented on the curriculum update, expressing excitement over the new AI focus. She anticipates that the introduction of AI and other new technologies into the curriculum will inspire students to create innovative applications that they can share with their communities and the world at large.
