Artificial Intelligence (AI) is creating more and more impact on our daily lives. Image recognition and interpretation, production robots, personalised suggestions on Netflix and self-driving cars are all AI examples. AI makes processes smarter and more autonomous. The need for skilled AI employees is massive, and it brings a major challenge along: the war on AI talent. Brightlands AI Academy offers a solution to this challenge by educating ‘change leaders’ to implement smart, data-driven innovations that will make their organisation future-proof.
A programme focussing on AI in this region has been initiated by entrepreneurs: IXT Data- and Robotics Professionals and Genzai. They found the perfect partners in Brightlands, connected to AI-hub Brightlands, Fontys Venlo and UMIO | Maastricht University. Various modules will be offered, during twelve full-time course days, which are aligned with practice: from ideation to business case and applicable AI methods and technics. Participants and employers will be connected, which will lead to synergies to create and develop new AI opportunities.
Brightlands AI Academy’s programme focuses on HBO and WO educated professionals with an inquisitive, creative and entrepreneurial mindset; strongly communicators who want to make a difference within their organisation by using data to innovate on processes and business models. Preferably, participants have a science education background including mathematics, business informatics, information management, econometrics, computer science, statistics and physics. The first academy cohort will start in October, with a maximum of 20 participants.
Brightlands AI Academy organises three introductory workshops, the first of which took place on June 23. Potential participants and employers can familiarise themselves with the content of the twelve-day programme. There is also the possibility to think about a possible AI user case within the organisation during a short ideation session.
