In a blog post, IBM describes Katariya’s process of coming to admirably.
“To achieve world record, Kautilya started reading IBM documentation to help me understand the concepts of computer programming and the Python language. Due to the impact of Covid-19 and being at home, Kautilya had plenty of time to participate in learning new skills, with support from her parents, “IBM said.
Kautilya received 5 certificates in Python and AI from IBM in November 2020. He completed a professional certification in AI on the Foundations of AI edX and the Python course for Data Science under the IBM Cognitive Class program.
Achieving a Guinness World Record in this field is an amazing feat for the 6-year-old boy. Through this, it can be seen that participating in programming and becoming a professional programmer is easily accessible to people all over the world.
Lots of kids start learning to code at a young age, but Katariya is the youngest to receive a degree and recognition for what it learns.
It also shows that anyone with an Internet connection and a progressive mind can learn something as complex as AI programming.
