Artificial Intelligence is the theory and development of computer systems in such a manner that they are able to perform tasks which originally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. AI has been widely recognised as the power to fuel the future global digital economy.

A circular issued by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) states that some new subjects such as artificial intelligence, early childhood care education and yoga will be introduced in its curriculum from the 2019-2020 academic session.

At Secondary Level : A skill subject may be offered as additional sixth subject along with the existing five compulsory subjects. If the student fails in any of the elective subjects (i.e. science, mathematics and social science), then it will be replaced by the skill subject (offered as the 6th subject) and result of class X will be computed based on best of five subjects.However, if a candidate desires to reappear in the failed subject, he/she may appear along with the compartment examination.

At Senior Secondary Level : It would be preferred if a school offers at least one or more skill based subjects as an elective subject out of 42 subjects.Necessary guidance and support towards training and capacity building of teachers along with other aspects for successful implementation of skill subjects will be provided by the board.
