Whether you are fully embracing the ongoing AI revolution or still on the fence about how AI will affect your job or business, being AI literate is fundamental to confidently operating in this new reality.

But what is AI literacy?

AI literacy is the ability to effectively and responsibly utilize, understand, and guide AI systems.

It involves understanding fundamental concepts like LLMs and NLP, familiarizing yourself with technologies such as ChatGPT and Decision Trees, and recognizing the ethical implications of AI, alongside being able to critically evaluate and navigate AI-driven systems and their impact on various aspects of business and society. We've prepared a comprehensive guide on how to learn AI from scratch in 2023, which covers the topic in more detail. 

AI Skills for Everyone

At DataCamp, our mission is to democratize data and AI skills for everyone. We are excited to announce our brand-new AI curriculum, prepared in collaboration with experts from Google, Microsoft, and Duolingo, to help you gain essential AI literacy skills.

Before introducing the new DataCamp courses, tracks, and skill assessments, let’s break down the key AI skills and the expertise required for different roles to work with AI.

We can identify three key roles and expected skill areas:

  • Everyone needs to understand key AI concepts, terminology, the principles of AI ethics, and be able to leverage tools like ChatGPT for personal productivity.
  • Business Leaders and AI Product Managers need to identify AI applications to optimize business processes, improve customer experience, and unlock more value inside the organization.
  • Data Scientists and Developers should possess a deep knowledge of AI algorithms and frameworks, proficiency in programming languages such as Python or R, hands-on experience leveraging AI to unearth insights, and skills to implement new and fine-tune existing AI models and integrate them into products and services.

AI skills for every learner

On top of our 80+ courses on Machine learning and AI for Data Scientists and Developers, we have added seven new courses to help everyone build modern AI skills.

Read on to learn about the latest AI Fundamentals track and skill assessment and seven new courses covering ChatGPT, LLMs, Generative AI, AI Ethics, and more.

AI Fundamentals Skill Assessment

How familiar are you with the key AI concepts? Are you confident using the AI jargon and identifying the use cases for LLMs, NLP, and Clustering algorithms?

Start learning AI by identifying your knowledge gaps with the new AI Fundamentals Skill Assessment. It comprises 15 interactive questions, takes less than 15 minutes, and helps you benchmark your knowledge level against other DataCamp learners.
