Microsoft’s AI Business School Expands Investments to Cover Government and Education Sectors

Microsoft has rolled out a new release of its AI Business School, as part of its efforts to empower governments, businesses decision-makers and education leaders in their digital transformation journeys.

“AI has come into mainstream today, and it’s changing how work is done across all sectors and industries. This calls for everyone to skill, upskill and reskill their capabilities in order to make the most of this intelligent technology.” Said Michael Mansour, Chief Learning Officer, Microsoft Middle East & Africa. “At Microsoft, we have an ambitious goal to make AI accessible and valuable to every individual and organization, so we can amplify the human ingenuity and enable them to accomplish their objectives. That is why we created the AI Business School, to share insights and practical guidance for governments and businesses on how to strategically apply AI – and achieve more.”

With expanded information, new and adapted lessons within its responsible AI module, and a new learning path for education industry decision-makers and educators, the AI Business School will prepare and enable decision-makers to innovate and solve pressing challenges being faced today.

Responsible AI: The expanded responsible AI content aims to illustrate how organizations can put principles into practice. Microsoft will offer a detailed view of its design principles for engineering, as well as videos on which tools can be used to develop responsible AI. Various case studies will also be shared to highlight how organizations have driven their AI transformation journeys and learners will also hear from AI experts such as Cathy Cobey, from EY, who will explain how to make governance tangible and measurable.

Education: To empower educators and education decision-makers do more with AI, Microsoft has teamed up with experts such as Michelle Zimmerman, author of Teaching AI: Exploring New Frontiers for Learning, to show how AI can transform classrooms and school processes. The new content will help guide the education industry to make the most of AI and redefining classrooms.

Government: To support governments in developing and implementing AI responsibly, the AI Business School will launch a new module about “identifying governing practices for responsible AI in government”, which will feature experts from EY and Altimeter. Microsoft will also share examples from governments around the world to shed light on what public officials should consider and how to take action.

Microsoft is infusing intelligence across all its products and services to extend individuals’ and organizations’ capabilities by enabling breakthroughs to current approaches, and entirely new scenarios that leverage the power of intelligent technology. Is your organization AI-Ready?
