In the digital era, as the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) permeates every corner of the world, public AI literacy is becoming essential. This study aims to promote AI literacy for citizens of digital-era societies. We propose a three-dimensional conceptual framework of AI literacy: the cognitive dimension involves educating people about basic AI concepts, and developing their competencies in using AI concepts for evaluating and understanding the real world; the affective dimension focuses on the empowerment of participants to enable them to react to the widespread use of AI in their daily lives and workplaces; and the sociocultural dimension encourages the ethical use of AI for sustainable global development. The aim of this paper is to start a conversation about and guide future research on a conceptual framework for designing AI literacy programmes. It is hoped that the proposed conceptual framework will provide researchers, educators, and policymakers with a solid foundation as they attempt to nurture and engage educated citizens who can capitalise on the opportunities and benefits AI offers.
