The second run of a five-week free course for anyone on AI starts on the 15th January 2023.

We and AI were delighted to work with The Scottish AI Alliance designing content for their course designed to give the general public of Scotland (and beyond!) an introduction to the world of AI.

The course was to some extent ground-breaking because there are very few (if any) other courses which are simultaneously:

  • aimed at the average reading age of the public rather than those with any particular level of educational background
  • designed to give a comprehensive introduction to the world of AI from a socio-technical perspective
  • part of a national commitment to get the general population engaged, interested and informed about AI and how it is used in their daily lives
  • use relevant national issues and case studies which can also be enjoyed by other nationalities

“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.

About the course content

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.

  • Week 1: What is AI?
  • Week 2: How can AI be Trustworthy, Ethical and Inclusive?
  • Week 3: AI and Our Society
  • Week 4: Working with AI
  • Week 5: AI and Our Future

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!

Spread the word

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.”

The Living with AI course will be available for free at www.livingwithai.me from the 15th of January 2024. Sign up now!
