HurixDigital Helps Prominent University Bridge the AI Knowledge Gap in Higher Education

In a rapidly evolving world where the influence of artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing each day, higher-ed institutions are facing an unprecedented challenge from this brilliant tech to ensure their relevance. 

AI Knowledge Gap in Higher Education


Overview: Our client, one of the USA’s leading educational institutions, and renowned for its cutting-edge online learning platform, wanted to position itself as a pioneer in providing students with higher education through tailored programs and convenient learning formats.

The client faced a significant challenge due to AI’s widespread influence. Despite AI creeping its way into the workplace, a survey revealed a substantial knowledge gap among U.S. adults, including Generation Z, regarding diverse AI models.

Confronted with the rising power of AI, the university recognized the need to address the knowledge gap. A survey conducted on the impact of AI in higher education and the workplace revealed a gap in truly understanding AI tools. While nearly 3 in 5 U.S. adults supported using AI tools in the workplace, a majority, including Gen-Z, lacked familiarity with various AI models.

The challenge was clear – how to equip learners with the essential understanding of AI models to thrive in an increasingly AI-driven world.
