What emerging innovations should learning leaders keep on their radar? Chief Learning Officer magazine’s Kellye Whitney discusses trends to keep in mind in her video blog, with artificial intelligence leading the pack. AI as a learning delivery method is on the rise, with multiple applications surfacing beyond the typical high tech use cases, and growing adoption by industries like healthcare, automotive, and finance. Recognizing AI’s potential, Udacity recently partnered with IBM’s AI unit Watson, Didi Chuxing, and Amazon’s AI voice assistant Alexa to offer a nanodegree in developing artificial intelligence. IBM will assist with designing curricula, and Udacity is also working with companies like Google and BMW to hire graduates of the program. Fortune predicts that the “AI market will grow to more than $5 billion by 2020.” Udacity president and co-founder Sebastian Thrun said of the program, “This is a truly global effort, with global potential. We believe AI will serve everyone best if it’s built by a diverse range of people.”
