YOUR OWN RESEARCHStefaan

In our basic course on AI we want to give a first practical experience with AI, positioning it between inspiration and classic extensive training courses.

We organize the courses around three specific topics at two different levels:

  1. Artficial Intelligence (AI)
  2. Machine Learning (ML)
  3. Data Science (DS)

Level 1: ‘Let’s get started with AI/ML/DS’

In the courses ‘Starting with Artificial Intelligence’, ‘Starting with Machine Learning’ and ‘Starting with Data Science’, participants receive theory and hands-on exercises in approximately 1 day, possibly supplemented with some self-study and a small test. This short course is very accessible and requires a limited amount of time. It must be able to appeal to a wide audience, but goes beyond inspiring. It should function as a springboard to access more comprehensive training.

Level 2: ‘Core AI/ML/DS’

After a participant has made the initial jump, a broader introduction is offered, going in-depth. Yet, this training is substantially shorter than a postgraduate degree. This ‘Core AI’, ‘Core ML’, and ‘Core DS’ comprises approximately 4-5 days of lessons with possible self-study, of which the hands-on experience is key. After this training, participants can continue with self-study, more long-term training, or on-the-job training.

For who?

The target audience of our basic AI course consists of adults who already know what AI is, are motivated to go along with it and would like to take their first steps.

The requirements for previous knowledge will depend on the exact content of the course, which we will determine together with the teachers.

We are working on a training where we will address how wearables, apps and AI can be used to support the health sector. Our primary goal is to give a seminar to general practitioners, but in the future we want to extend this training or seminar series and target healthcare providers in general. To this end we are creating an overview of which wearables and healthcare apps are currently used in the FLAIR program.

Are you using apps and wearables in your research to support healthcare providers? Let us know so we can create an overview and see how we can fit your research in this training!

In October we will start an inspirational seminar series on AI, showcasing examples and insights in AI originating in our extensive network. It is our goal to inspire and attract new people to the world of AI.

These seminars are short (1 hour max.), free and broadcasted to a wide audience, online or in a hybrid format. They will take place weekly on Tuesdays at noon.

We will follow 4 tracks:

  1. Inspirational track – big speakers, big insights
  2. Scientific track – researchers explain about their latest developments in AI
  3. Industry track – inspiring examples out of industry, small and large
  4. Policy track – insights and developments in the legal, ethical and policy aspects of AI

Would you like to share your insights with a wide and open audience in a short amount of time? Are you an inspirational speaker? Leave us your details!

Do you want to know more, or have a question, send an e-mail to: isabelle.borremans@vlaamse-ai-academie.be.

Is your research exciting and interesting but in another domain? Do not hesitate to add your own expertise and we will evaluate whether and how we can fit it into one of our courses. Ideas about new trainings and new audiences are also very welcome. So don’t hesitate to contact us and ask questions, supply ideas or inspire us!
