Through the website, modules related to AI are taught every day by connecting with an expert, he said and added that the link is sent to about 16,000 madrasas of the state. The classes are live telecast at these schools through the link, the minister said.
There are 16,513 recognised madrasas in Uttar Pradesh, out of which 560 are given government grants. To a question on whether separate teachers will be appointed to teach AI in madrasas, Ansari said that a training programme was recently organised for teachers in madrasas.
The teachers were explained in detail about the various aspects of AI. In the future, with the help of the website and these teachers, this programme will be taken further in madrasas, the minister said.
He said that right now this programme has been started as a pilot project. It will be given a better shape in the future, Ansari added.
Asked whether AI education is being given only in recognised madrasas of the state, Ansari said that it is an online platform and any madrasa can access this and impart training in AI to its students.
He said that the BJP government in the state is making sincere efforts to bring Muslims into the mainstream by connecting them with education.
