Intel® Digital Readiness Programs
Intel® Digital Readiness Programs empower the non-technical audiences with the appropriate skill sets, mindsets, toolsets, and opportunities to use technology impactfully and responsibly in the AI-fueled world.
What Is ‘Digital Readiness’ and Why Does It Matter?
Digital Readiness encompasses skills, trust, and responsible use of Emerging Technologies by people for broader socio-economic benefits. Increased digitalization requires investment in digital readiness for countries to remain competitive in the global economy. Nations want to foster local innovations, and people seek more trust and application-building capabilities with new skills.
Addressing the ‘Digital Skills Crisis’
Closing the digital skills gap can add up to $11.5 trillion in GDP in G20 countries by 2028, as per Accenture1. Addressing the emerging talent gap, such as AI-related tech and social skills, has become a critical industry and policy agenda since jobs across all sectors increasingly embrace AI.
