Accenture announced today that it will acquire the learning platform, Udacity. This acquisition is part of an initiative to create a learning platform focused on AI, in response to increasing interest in the field. While the acquisition price for Udacity was not disclosed, Accenture also announced a $1 billion investment in a technology learning platform named LearnVantage.

Although the company could offer broader technology training, it underscored its interest in providing training for AI. Kishore Durg, the global lead of Accenture LearnVantage, said in a statement, “The rise of generative AI represents one of the most transformative changes in how work gets done. It’s driving a growing need for enterprises to train and upskill people in cloud, data, and AI as they build their digital core and reinvent their enterprises.”
