The Oxford Foundry has entered into a new partnership with Ripple and its University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI), the official announcement states.
As the announcement states, students will be given the opportunity to learn how to code in Python and build smart contracts.
The Tech Series will reportedly be delivered through "the Foundry’s experiential learning model."
Director of the Oxford Foundry Ana Bakshi says the university is delighted to be partnering with Ripple.
"The UK has a big tech skills gap and we’re helping address that. Since 2014 the number of AI job postings has increased by 485% and a quarter of companies highlight that a lack of available AI talent is a primary inhibitor in their efforts to adopt AI (Gartner)," Bakshi added.
Previously iHodl reported that the Chief Executive Officer of financial technology company Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse, in a new official blog post highlighted that 2019 "had been Ripple's strongest year yet."
