Summary | Internship GAIn – Data & AI Training
GAIn is MIcompany’s Data & AI Academy. GAIn started in 2005 to build the necessary advanced skills of data science and machine learning for engineering specialists at leading companies. By now we have educated more than 8,000 people through a variety of modules covering topics such as Data, AI, leadership, communication, product management, etc.
We have established ourselves as one of the leaders in the field of corporate data & AI training, and we excel at providing hugely impactful cutting-edge learning content and education in these fields, but also in many more.
Being part of MICompany, we directly benefit from all the ongoing AI and data developments within the organisation. These, we try to translate as much as (and as quickly as) possible into new educational content to empower organisations on their journey of digital transformation, which inherently directly improves the world around us. These transformations take the form of e.g. waste reduction, logistics optimisation, optimised energy consumption, etc. thanks to having a direct impact on the smarter operation of these organisations.
