The AI Academy is an integrated system of education, research and project management focusing on the study and application of Artificial Intelligence.

With a blend of advanced learning curricula, research and application of AI to real life projects, the AI Academy aims at the creation of a fertile environment for the formation of AI “Black Belts”.

Panel 1




The AI Academy inverts the business logic of traditional educational systems and funds its activities through AI Consultancy and Projects Implementation instead of students tuitions. This disruptive approach means eliminating financial barrier to high quality education allowing access to all on-line courses with a single affordable annual admission fee. This new approach allows the AI Academy to focus on excellence rather than on “manufacturing graduated students”.


Once they are through the initial levels of AI alphabetization, alumni can immediately start participating of real projects contributing at the appropriate level based on the skills acquired. Integrating real AI projects with the learning path will give the Alumni an early start in understanding how to apply the skills learned to real life problems and give Companies an early access to a talent pool that is already trained to provide concrete results in a real work environment.


The AI Academy doesn’t adopt a one-size-fits-all approach to professional education: there are no classes with a fixed curriculum that alumni needs to complete by a predefined date – alumni can acquire skills in a personalized educational path at their own pace with a combination of on-line courses and live interaction and can decide to take ability level tests when they are ready.


The AI Academy was conceived by industry executives to address the lack of qualified AI workers and narrows the gap between knowledge in the fast-moving Artificial Intelligence field and companies trying to apply AI to real business problems – what we call a “market-fist” approach.


The AI Academy adopts a methodology borrowed from the martial arts to determine the ability level achieved by the Alumni. The traditional framework of the “study term” (predetermined timeframe to complete a certain number of classes) is removed maintaining the Alumni focus simply on the skills level achieved. Those who achieve the highest ability levels that can be taught with a course, can continue their path towards excellence by working on Advanced Research and contributing back to the Artificial Intelligence knowledge developed at the AI Academy.

The AI Academy Curriculum aims to provide a variety of skills required to implement complex real-life AI Projects and as such brings together a compelling set of classes in the following fields:

  • Statistical Programming Languages
  • Mathematics
  • Data Science
  • Cloud Technologies
  • Artificial Intelligence

A Personalized Curriculum will be created for each Alumnus based on his/her specific areas of interest and skill level at the time of admission.

Today there is an explosion of high-quality on-line classes but learning some new technology on-line is not enough to guarantee access to highest paying jobs. The AI Academy leverage existing on-line platforms while focusing on adding value in two aspects:

Curate the selection of on-line courses: 

  • The curriculum is created picking the highest quality classes across multiple MOOC platforms and place emphasis on skills required in real life projects as opposed to academic knowledge.

Complement the on-line classes with project-based assignments:

  • at each ability level we incorporate a number of use-case or project based assignments so that Alumni can apply the skills learned to real-life use cases. This is where the learning becomes rich thanks to the interaction among the Alumni, Project Leaders and real clients attempting to address real business challenges through the application of AI.
