Google (GOOGL.O), which opens a new tab, has donated 25 million euros ($26.98 million) to teach Europeans how to utilize artificial intelligence (AI).

Google (GOOGL.O), which opens a new tab, has pledged 25 million euros ($26.98 million) to help Europeans learn how to use artificial intelligence (AI).

The internet giant announced the financing on Monday, saying it has accepted applications for social entrepreneurs and organizations to help reach individuals most likely to benefit from training.

The company will also operate a series of “growth academies” to help companies use AI to boost their businesses, and it has expanded its free online AI training classes to 18 languages.

“Research shows that the benefits of AI could exacerbate existing inequalities, especially in terms of economic security and employment,” said Adrian Brown, executive director of the Centre for Public Impact, which runs the nonprofit program alongside Google.

“This new program will help people across Europe develop their knowledge, skills, and confidence around AI, ensuring that no one is left behind.”

Google stated last month that it would invest $1 billion in creating a data center just outside of London to accommodate the region’s growing demand for internet services.

The data center, located on 33-acre (13-hectare) land purchased by Google in 2020, will be placed in the town of Waltham Cross, roughly 15 miles (24.14 kilometers) north of downtown London, according to an Alphabet statement.
