Training in Artificial Intelligence

Get Started

Courses. Confident to make you succeed.

AI skills are one of the most highly sought after skills of our time, either if you need to lead initiatives or you are going to develop the applications yourself. I help you get started to succeed in the field and to apply the knowledge straight away.

The courses are put together and inspired by the best materials in the field, from theory books through practice books, including insights from the best professionals and online courses. I bring it all together for you to apply and get results. You will learn the theoretical foundations you need to succeed, and you will get reference material to advance in the future. You will also get practical examples from industry, and get hands-on cases to develop yourself, with different focus depending on your chosen track.

Backed by experience in the field, guided by continuous education and triggered by nonconformism towards state-of-the art, I am confident to make you succeed.
