AI for Citizens
Demystify AI for the public and community.
Why AI for Citizens?
Governments are creating comprehensive national AI strategies to develop a sustainable, inclusive and positive impact on their citizens, industries and overall societies. However, the AI skill gap is recognized as the most significant barrier for wider AI adoption. Public awareness and understanding of AI remain low. Public surveys often show that AI knowledge is based mainly on hype and speculations. For example, a recent UK survey shows that 37% of the public doesn’t even fully understand the term AI. Hence, there is an urgent need to demystify and democratize AI through appropriate public awareness programs to foster a correct understanding of the benefits and limitations of AI.
- AI Awareness: Build an elementary understanding of AI and its potentials and pitfalls.
