AI LIFELONG LEARNING PROGRAMMES for professionals

The AI LAB launches training programmes to guide you in your transition to AI

AI is a general purpose technology, which generates both fear and fantasy. 
The impact of AI on careers and education cannot be underestimated, especially given the ever-increasing speed of technological and associated social changes.

To break the taboos of AI, the AI LAB of the VUB is setting up a lifelong learning programme with several training formats to approach AI in an adapted, enlightened and thoughtful way.

If you are willing to:

√  understand the impact of AI for your industry
√  identify your needs and the tools
√  train yourself and your teams
√  be open to opportunities and change

then there is a programme suited to your needs.

Who are these programmes for
  • Decision makers
  • Legal profiles
  • Business developers
  • Project Managers
  • Investors
  • Independants
