Worried AI will take your job? Google wants to help you out

Worried AI will take your job? Google wants to help you out Google's philanthropic arm, Google.org, wants to prep tomorrow’s workforce. *** It's committing $50 million to help people prepare for the “changing nature of work.” *** Specifically in jobs, industries, and opportunities that are emerging. *** Technological, social, and economic shifts will disrupt the workforce in the coming decades. *** But this is being driven in part by Google itself, which has an “AI-first" approach. *** Google’s philanthropic efforts are now focusing on three areas where nonprofits could help: *** Skills training, connecting job-seekers with positions, and supporting low-wage workers. *** Google.org is initially funding groups and programs across the US and Europe. *** It’s backing Code for America, which helps people use government services to find jobs. *** It’s backing France’s Bayes Impact, which uses machine learning to offer tips to job seekers. *** And it’s supporting Alia, which lets domestic workers pool their money as a sort of insurance. *** Google.org promised to spread out its grant over two years.
