Using AI in Learning Programs [Webinar]

The honeymoon for artificial intelligence (AI) is over, as Forrester noted in its Predictions 2018 report. Using AI successfully—in whatever industry—will require hard work. And, treating AI and other new technologies like plug-in panaceas will fail. Miserably.

This prediction will hold true for using AI in learning programs as well.

To that end, on June 14 from 8 AM – 8:30 AM MST my colleague, Annika von Redwitz, and I will hold a 30-minute webinar to review the latest innovations in L&D. We’ll talk about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is created and used; and how to use AI to develop learning programs that teach employees and managers the skills they need to succeed with their teams and project work.

You’ll learn how to source programs, what to consider when using AI, how to distinguish quality, and what resonates best with diverse employee groups.

Using AI in learning programs

It is vital to understand today where AI will impact L&D solutions in the future. Annika and I believe the impact of AI on learning and development has the potential to disrupt the delivery of corporate learning in the future. In our recent article for Training Industry, Annika and I shone a spotlight on the potential impact of AI on L&D.

Why? Because this area of business is critical to any company’s success today. We need to prepare leaders, train managers, inspire employees, develop great communicators, promote diversity, and ensure our teams are high-performing. For these reasons, comprehensive learning programs are essential, and will, in all likelihood include the use of new technologies like artificial intelligence.

But we have our work cut out for us.

According to an article written by Christian Foerg, for Modern Workplace Learning Magazine, more than 60 percent of executives surveyed by Forrester say their organization is behind regarding digital transformation. Forrester reports companies are struggling to adjust to these new technological realities will be challenged to attract and retain top talent. “As AI becomes more ingrained in the corporate world, people with highly specialized skills as data scientists and software developers will want to work for companies further along their digital transformation journey,” Foerg writes.

All of this is essential information if you are launching a global learning strategy containing AI solutions. Bear in mind; you may need to prepare and communicate more intensively in some regions and with particular target groups if you are using AI in learning programs.
