From fear to empowerment

Become part of VUB's AI university community and learn that AI is not an evolution to fear, but a story of opportunities that you need to embrace, to keep your mind fresh and one step ahead in the future.

Through inspirational seminars, we will demystify AI and explain what is (not yet) possible. Exciting  examples from the past will guide the seminar to demonstrate their impact on the processes and humans.

The seminars are divided in both horizontal topics (e.g. AI & ethics) as vertical ones (e.g. AI in marketing or HR) and are given by academic authorities in the respective fields.

The right technology at the right spot

Artificial Intelligence is a collection of sophisticated technologies. It is not always easy to know where to start, to identify what data is needed, and what technology to use.

During these workshops you will discover your true potential.

Competence based education

Applying AI techniques has come within reach of many due to the availability of high quality open source libraries, blogs and MOOCs.  However, the complexity of techniques and methodologies is ever increasing, and having a deep understanding of their internal working has become a necessity.

The skill trainings, provided by post-doctoral researchers in AI, provide a deep dive into the inner workings, till the mathematical, statistical, and computer scientific foundations.

After successful completion (or after examination for autodidacts / students of other trainings), you receive a certificate that states your competence.

Guidance tailored to your needs.

As a complement to the seminars & expert trainings, we help you guide you through the AI transformation  through advice and coaching.  The blended setting ensures that your learning journey happens where, when, how and at the speed you desire.

We offer a continuous follow-up programme with learning effects that last long after the training is done.  Have a personal and private conversation with an expert, based on a question formulated beforehand.
