Search giant Google has revealed its plans to provide free AI training for everyone in the UK as part of its plan to expand digital skills training in the region. The company says that its new AI training series is for everyone. It can help people and businesses learn useful skills and knowledge to use AI. They can also use AI to save time, find a new job or grow their businesses. 

Google experts have created 10 modules with practical advice and tips focused on relevant AI skills. Two of these modules have commenced including: 

Boost Your Productivity with AI: An introduction to the smartest ways AI tools can save users time. 

Understanding Machine Learning: Designed for small and medium-sized business leaders, this course teaches the potential of machine learning to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and drive growth. 

A collective effort towards AI adoption 

Debbie Weinstein, vice president of Google and managing director of Google UK & Ireland said in a blog post, “I was proud to see the reaction among the 85 enthusiastic learners who were the first to complete the training at a Google Digital Garage event hosted by Ruth Porat, SVP and CFO Google and Alphabet.” 

“We’re excited to release the next eight modules in the coming weeks, covering topics like how to use data, cloud computing, cybersecurity, and leadership in a digital world – skills and expertise needed to run an AI-enabled business,” said Weinstein. 

These courses teach the basics of AI and Google says learners don’t need previous tech knowledge to learn and understand them. Around 50 people, including small business owners, went to the first class at Google’s King’s Cross offices in London. 

The UK currently has a big opportunity for tech-driven growth that benefits the environment and involves just about everyone. And the Gmail company believes that everyone needs to work together to make it happen. 

“Alongside this new AI training, we’re calling for a new National Skills Service to identify, offer and accredit lifelong learning that will help close the UK’s digital skills gap and prepare people for future opportunities,” added Weinstein.
