The second run of a five-week free course for anyone on AI starts on the 15th January 2023.
The course was to some extent ground-breaking because there are very few (if any) other courses which are simultaneously:
“Living with AI” is a great and rare commitment to making general level AI literacy attainable to everyone to enable a greater understanding of the uses and questions posed by the range of tools and technologies, and to explore their future potential. Although creating materials was challenging due to the rapid changes and innovation, proliferating hype and platform restrictions, feedback from the first run of the course shows how worthwhile the effort was.
Each week has a specific topic and the course is made up of written articles, videos from AI experts across Scotland, audio clips, reflective and activity-based exercises, quizzes and opportunities to collaborate with other learners.
All content has been refreshed for 2024 and will be released at once, so learners can go at their own pace in their own time. The course will remain open for two months, so learners have plenty of time to complete the course and earn their digital certificate!
Living with AI is a fun, five week course perfect for anyone looking to understand how AI is being used in our world and the rapid changes it is making. It is designed to be accessible to all, regardless of prior knowledge or experience with AI.
“We believe that the Living with AI course is an important step in promoting a better understanding of AI and its impact on society,” said Steph Wright, Head of the Scottish AI Alliance. “By providing people with the knowledge and tools they need to engage with AI in a meaningful way, we can ensure that this technology is used in a way that benefits us all.”
