Accenture spends $1 billion each year on artificial intelligence training for its employees, according to CEO Julie Sweet, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos on January 16.

You have to be willing as a part of that to upskill because people in our workforce have not received this training in their education,” Sweet stated as he addressed the audience. “Generative AI: Steam Engine of the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Sweet said that collaboration with governments is essential to improve basic education. “It’s not going to help now, but we need to think 10-20-30 years ahead,” she told me.

She said that leadership is the single most important factor in determining whether a corporation or government effectively benefits from generative AI.

You have to understand it at a very deep level because it is not that there are millions of use cases…. but you have to operationalize it,” Sweet told the audience.

She went on to say that operationalizing generative AI must be done responsibly since “there wasn’t a responsible PC or cloud, there is responsible AI for a reason.

Markets & Markets predicts that by 2025, the AI market will be worth $190 billion. AI has become almost ubiquitous in our lives. Some folks are even concerned about a full AI victory over humanity! While this is an exaggeration, we have integrated AI into our everyday lives and activities. Even a basic Google search utilizes AI to give you the best accurate results.

AI has proven useful in a variety of areas, including logistics optimization, fraud detection, art composition, research, translation, and many other jobs. 

AI has had an impact in almost every sector. In medicine, for example, artificial intelligence has been used to diagnose cancer, strokes, and fractured bones. AI is being used at all levels of education, not only in teaching but also in other systems that have a significant impact on academics. It is also often utilized by businesses for staff training. Many companies have already implemented AI solutions for training and development into their learning strategy.

Most corporate learning solutions are based on holistic teaching. What we mean is that all workers use the same course materials. However, not all workers are equal. Some people may already have the necessary skills for the job. Forcing people to learn something they already know is not a successful method.

 AI in Learning and Development can evaluate large amounts of data and conclude using technologies such as machine learning and predictive analysis. AI can also generate learner profiles from various data sources, which would take days to complete manually. It can automatically and quickly detect lacking abilities in your workforce. 

This notion is already being used. Popular online training providers may utilize AI to assess student performance, abilities, and knowledge gaps inside an organization. Once the gap has been discovered, the L&D team may work on adjusting their training method to address the knowledge gap. This improves learning and saves valuable staff time. 

The purpose of AI in education is to improve the learning experience, increase the efficacy of teaching, and offer learners with more tailored and efficient education.
