How a US college is using a pyramid approach to AI: Opinion

Lauren Coffey of Inside Higher Ed outlines Barnard College’s use of a pyramid framework to improve artificial intelligence (AI) literacy among faculty, staff, and students. The pyramid approach consists of four levels–Understand AI, Use and Apply AI, Analyze and Evaluate AI, and Create AI–that ensure community members develop a solid foundation before working with AI. Barnard is currently focused on helping students, staff, and faculty become comfortable with AI through initiatives such as workshops where they can learn about and test AI software. Coffey concludes by discussing the broader need for postsecondary institutions to implement a framework or policy for using AI.
