About the course

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the way business is done. This important course is tailored to help you as a tribal leader think though the implications of AI tools for your community, including AI's risks and opportunities, how it may impact tribal economies, potential job displacement and creation, considerations for policy-making around AI and its use in tribal government and enterprise operations, and illustrative use cases. We'll explore some of the AI-enabled tools currently available on the market, and walk you through, step-by-step, how to use ChatGPT.

This class is vital for anyone who is in the position to make decisions about the tribe's use of AI or the way the tribe should respond to coming changes in the face of AI, as well as anyone involved with implementing AI solutions for tribal government or operations. It's also recommended for tribal community members and employees who want to stay informed about issues related to AI.

This course was made with the assistance of AI tools. We'll show you how in the course!
