Google, AI, and a Free Up-Skilling Program
Ramona Schindelheim, Work in Progress
Andrew Dunckelman describes Google as an AI-first company in which everyone needs some command of artificial intelligence. To make certain employees are getting the skills they need to change with their jobs, Google developed what it calls a "Machine Learning Crash Course."
More than 18,000 people inside Google have completed the free course, and now the company is making it available to the world at large, also for free.
On this episode of Work in Progress, Dunckelman talks about Google's efforts to address the skills gap and why businesses, local governments, educators, and employees themselves must step up as well.
