With the purpose to educate their workers, business and employment service LinkedIn launches an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Academy.
In a report by Android Headlines, the academy was made to inform LinkedIn employees about the technology and how tools based on such solutions can be incorporated into their work. It’s to put a resolution on the difficulty or lack of AI skills which resulted in difficulty in AI implementations.
“Today, top universities can’t produce graduates with the requisite AI skills quickly enough,” said Martell, the head of science and engineering. “Companies around the world compete fiercely for these individuals, without whom they can’t hope to remain competitive; LinkedIn is no exception.”
AI experts will facilitate the training, and the courses will have various levels. One of the curriculum’s inclusion is how to use artificial intelligence ethically.

The first level is titled: “Product/Engineering Manager Awareness.” That will be tied in with designing and managing an A.I. project relevant to the employee’s specific job. The second level will center around partnerships with relevance teams, and the third level centers around Building A.I. products within a team. Finally, the fourth level is defined as a foray into the “State of the Art,” taking trainees to the bleeding edge of the technology.
LinkedIn already has a website about AI academy. On the website’s page, LinkedIn tells what AI academy is about, saying that they aim to bridge AI and Machine Learning and provide industry experience and skills to begin a career in data science and machine learning.
