Sharpening Taxonomy

The Era of AI

We are not living in the changing world of AI, instead we are living in the world where using AI we are enhancing the experience and productivity. This article has got its inspiration from the same thought by enhancing the well-known education framework “Bloom’s Taxonomy” to suit the needs of changing world of AI. Sharpening Taxonomy – the era of AI is indeed a experimental work towards enhancing the blooms taxonomy to reflect the higher order skills needed for the AI industry beyond 2020. Our intended target audience are academicians, institutions, future focused schools, students, industry professionals and AI researchers/SME’s.

Bloom’s taxonomy is a set of three hierarchical models used to classify educational learning objectives into levels of complexity and specificity. The three lists cover the learning objectives in cognitive, affective and sensory domains. The cognitive domain list has been the primary focus of most traditional education and is frequently used to structure curriculum learning objectives, assessments and activities.

Cognitive skills in general is defined as the ability of an individual to perform the various mental activities most closely associated with learning and problem solving. Source Wikipedia. In simple terms it’s the core skills our brain uses to think, read, learn, remember, reason, and pay attention. Working together, they take incoming information and move it into the bank of knowledge you use every day at school, at work, and in life. While the purpose of bloom’s taxonomy is to help as an education framework to setup learning contents, assessments in schools and colleges.

This novel work is to enhance the taxonomy by adding additional attribute to the framework to suit the needs of AI world which will be faced by student community in their post school/college roles. The cognitive skills are setting the base and does get extended in our professional work and life as well as individuals enter into career path. Therefore it has become essential to look at the attribute needed to survive in the industry today and start practicing the same to balance the work life in this AI world.

Below is a representation of Blooms’ Taxonomy commonly found. In addition, Below has the revised visualization which represents broad wedge at the top highlights the value of creating, evaluating and analysing in a better way giving the importance of all.

Bloom's Taxonomy

In short, the lower levels of Bloom’s taxonomy focus on the knowledge that we want our students to acquire – what we want our students to remember and understand. The middle levels focus on application and analysis of information. At the top of Bloom’s taxonomy are tasks that involve creating and evaluating.

If we look at what Industry wants, it expects its professionals at work to possess the same skills that are laid out in the above framework. Such as remembering, understanding, applying and other higher order skills as a part of day to day work. Higher values of creating, evaluating, analysing are no longer a value additions, they are considered as regular expected outcome that a professional brings in his or her work. So what defines one’s success in his or her career path is a question that is in the mind of professionals at large.

AI based solutions are gaining more traction and organizations, people have started adopting them, the adoption percentage is expected to increase as we move towards 2021 onwards. It’s the need of the hour to look at attributes that are needed for today’s industry, There is no single attribute for success, it’s a collection of various attributes. However for the purpose of the discussion here, we are going to discuss and talk about only one attribute “Fluidity” which is key for this era of AI.

It’s known fact that if one needs to achieve greater level of success in career he or she needs to break barriers and boundaries and move out of comfort zone irrespective of the field of work.

Being with Fluid mind, helps to deal with uncertainties, dynamic change of course or action, changing technology, new skills, continuous learning, adapting to changing environments. Its therefore a person with multi-disciplinary skills has a upper edge. It is due to these reasons we are adding fluidity as a key attribute in the higher order skills of Taxonomy.
