Finland plans to teach 1% of the European Union population (more than 5 million people) basic artificial intelligence (AI) skills via a free online course.

Finnish Minister of Employment Timo Harakka said the project is intended to further Europeans' digital literacy, boost their practical understanding of AI, and advance Europe's digital leadership.

Ville Valtonen of Reaktor Education, which created the course with Helsinki University, said, "It is ... vital that more and more individuals can understand how different solutions work and what they can be used for."

More than 220,000 students from 110 countries have enrolled in the course, which covers topics including machine learning, neural networks, the philosophy of AI, and AI-driven problem-solving.
