Subsidies for Accreditation by Global Standards Bodies and Setting up Centers of Excellence

Joining the World Data Science Initiative (WDSI) essentially implies that an institution is interested in getting accredited under a WDSI subsidy. WDSI is selecting universities and institutions globally and accrediting over 200 of them on the world’s most advanced cross-platform data science, artificial intelligence and blockchain standards. Besides accrediting them, another important WDSI aim is to help computer science and information technology departments of these universities introduce world-class undergraduate and master’s programs in data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain, topped by international certifications for students on subsidized fee. WDSI is also hand-picking high-potential institutions in 15 special focus global regions to position and groom them as role-model educators in data science, artificial intelligence and blockchain disciplines. WDSI-recommended institutions get accredited on subsidized fee and get assistance in setting up centers of excellence in their campuses. In addition, institutions are helped in establishing a formal mechanism for certifying students on future-ready standards, curricula and content to equip them for multiple analytics, machine intelligence and blockchain platforms.
