According to a report conducted by the World Economic Forum, there will be more than 55 million new jobs created in the next five years due to Artificial intelligence (AI). Also, a study done by Oracle indicated that AI adoption will create a positive impact on many businesses. To help employees learn about AI, these four steps can be used:
Are Employees Knowledgeable About AI?
An initial step that needs to be taken by an organization that wants to introduce AI to its employees is to conduct an AI audit. This will help determine the current amount of knowledge and understanding of AI that its workforce possesses. Questions like the following can be used:
– What do employees actually know about AI?
– Has any part of the organization been introduced to the implementation of AI?
– Do the employees have any familiarity with the capabilities of AI?
By asking these type of questions and analyzing the results, a business will create data that they can use to establish a baseline. This will help them determine what type of training needs to be designed and implemented.
Locating Appropriate AI Coursework
The second step in introducing AI to a workforce is to locate appropriate AI coursework that will help employees get up to speed so that they meet the goals for a business. This step will depend on how familiar employees are with AI. If they don’t even know what the acronym AI stands for, beginner coursework is probably going to be best. However, it may be an organization where team members are familiar with AI. If this is the situation, employees may be prepared to jump into coursework that demonstrates how AI can be utilized to increase productivity in areas such as finance, marketing, and sales.
Sharing Content That Is Easy To Consume
With many businesses, finding the time to train and teach AI is going to be a challenge. Most employees are already busy with the operations of a business. This is why it’s important to use long and short form training material. Short form content can be used when employees don’t have as much time to focus on learning AI, and longer form training can be used when employees have more time.
When training begins, it will help to use training that is specific to the current role of each employee in the business. This allows them to learn about how AI is beneficial to their job. In the future, the focus can be geared toward the different ways that AI can be used to help a business.
