The AI market is projected to grow to $190 Billion by 2025. AI is being used in every industry and is projected to be a core skill for the future. We are shifting to a new phase of AI development, where broad segments of the non-technical workforce are encountering AI in their job roles. This is both exciting and fraught with peril. Instances of AI failures, legal issues, and ethical issues are rising. There is pressure on AI development to accommodate not just data scientists but people from all walks of life. To achieve the next levels of returns from AI require technologies and solutions that combine AI and human intelligence.
In this talk, we discuss recent AI and Machine Learning technology trends and what it takes to bring AI knowledge out of the technical domain and into the broader workforce, and technology trends like low-code that enable broad adoption. We will then discuss a framework for AI Literacy - the Four Cs - and experiences of bringing AI literacy to individuals worldwide.
