The market has changed radically and continues to change. Artificial intelligence, specifically, has changed the game.

Adoption of emerging technologies will automate, augment, and disrupt, at a speed and scale never seen before. To grasp the full potential of AI, a transformation is needed that requires both a new way of working and new skill sets. This two-day course demystifies AI, by providing an understanding of all the terminology used around AI and the challenges that come with these new technologies.

In-company Training Programs

Are you interested to train a larger group of people, looking for specific training and/or interested in creating a company-wide program? We will be happy to assist!

Whether you have a very specific training need (for example: training your Data Engineers on advanced technical topics, or your Data Scientists on model implementation), or the need for a large transformational program, or something in between, we can help. Over the past 13 years, we have built up extensive experience not only in the implementation of multi-year, multi-population, multi-country programs but also in providing high quality, very specific modules for specific target groups. Both in in-house set-ups and cross-company programs. Not sure what type of program would fit your organization best? We’d be happy to discuss the best approach together.
