Microsoft is releasing a new set of artificial intelligence courses framed for business leaders which will involve free instructional videos and case studies.
These videos and case studies will be focusse on the less technical aspects of the technology as it applies to top executives who are trying to integrate AI, including strategy, company culture and ethical responsibilities, into their operations.
They’re the latest in a series of instructional materials Microsoft has released, as it looks to address the usual shortage or absence of educational resources and talent in the Artificial Intelligence sector.
As per Mitra Azizirad, Microsoft’s Corporate VP of AI Marketing and Productisation, the study material is the result of three-year conversations that Microsoft has had with client executives, who opined that there was a dearth of educational resources on AI that reached beyond the nuts-and-bolts technical level.
“We wanted to make sure we were meeting the needs of business leaders and really empowering them, no matter where they were on their journey, to drive an AI transformation with a focus on strategy, culture and governance,” Azizirad added.
The development comes about a week after the publication of a Microsoft-commissioned survey gauging executives’ priorities when it comes to implementing AI.
