芬兰的全面 AI 教育
来自在线媒体 Politico 的一篇报道，介绍了芬兰如何推动全民 AI 教育
。早在 2017 年 10 月，芬兰就是欧盟首个发布 AI 国家战略的国家，并开始大力推行 AI 全民普及，文章开头的一个案例：
Until a year ago, the 59-year-old dentist from the Finnish town of Mikkeli had no idea what to make of terms like “machine learning” or “neural networks.”
Now, Partanen spends her evenings learning the basics of coding and she is thinking about how to apply artificial intelligence to her job, either to help write up medical summaries or perform orthodontics.
“I can see it [artificial intelligence] is already here, and it serves us — very much actually,” she said, adding that following the latest developments in the field has become a hobby.
She’s one of tens of thousands of non-technology experts who are taking part in a grand experiment aimed at repurposing the country’s economy toward high-end applications of artificial intelligence. The idea has a simple, Nordic ring to it: Start by teaching 1 percent of the country’s population, or about 55,000 people, the basic concepts at the root of artificial technology, and gradually build on the number over the next few years.
