AI Literacy Matters

AI literacy is essential in today’s digital age as it underpins the ability to navigate, understand, and influence the AI-enhanced systems that permeate aspects of our interconnected lives—from our family dynamics and community interactions to our workplaces and healthcare decisions. Developing AI literacy helps ensure that all adults are not only consumers of AI technology but also informed participants who can leverage these tools to enhance their personal and professional lives. Moreover, fostering AI literacy is crucial for promoting digital equity and resilience, ensuring all individuals are equipped to benefit from technological advancements without being disadvantaged by them. It allows people to leverage AI while critically engaging with technology, recognizing biases embedded in AI systems, and advocating for fair and ethical AI practices that respect and enhance human dignity.
