SINGLE AFFORDABLE ADMISSION FEE
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”.
LEARNING THROUGH REAL PROJECTS
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.
PERSONALIZED EDUCATIONAL PATH
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.
A “MARKET-FIRST” APPROACH
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.
A JOURNEY TOWARDS EXCELLENCE
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.
