5-Day AI Bootcamp

In partnership with

In this five days intensive course, you will learn the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence, its business applications and how to successfully implement these frontier technologies. Our unique Bootcamp equips you with all the competence that industry leaders are seeking today to create value in their companies. As the need for AI skills grows, human skills such as storytelling and creativity become increasingly important.

You will leave with a new set of skills in Data Science, Machine Learning and Deep Learning that will enable you to prototype AI initiatives in your organization, but you will also learn with a professional actor the powerful tools that you need for your initiatives to be embraced.

During this one of a kind training, hands-on experience will be gained by building a Machine Learning solution with your team of highly motivated participants. Interaction, team emulation, and nonverbal communications are vital to achieving learning objectives.

  • CTO

    A research fellow at Stanford who studied with Andrew Ng, Andrew Zhang is one of the top experts in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Neural Network as well as IoT and Blockchain. Prior to joining Kinestry, he worked in senior-level positions at Sharp Corporation on developing AI-powered systems connected to IoT devices for preventive maintenance and at HB, a leading behavioral AI FinTech company. Andrew also has a Ph.D. in Computer Science.

  • Actor

    Sure, Tomas Pais is a professional actor that you can see on TV, but during our bootcamp he plays the central role of an engagement skills coach. Passionate about science and technology, Tomas focuses his work here around storytelling and he helps our future AI engineers realize their full potential as creative storytellers as well. Through tailored improvisation work, you learn to actively listen to your environment, use what surrounds you and inspire others to develop group thinking, confidence in their own ideas, and empathy. You leave ready to translate your technical knowledge of AI into business language, to implement new team interaction practices and to successfully transform your organization!

Guest Speakers

  • CEO Kinestry

    Eric is the other brain behind this program. He is the Business Transformation and Design Thinking master who came up with the concept of a training bringing together in-demand technical competence and uniquely human skills, driven by a strong vision: the best asset of a company is its human capital. His strong experience in partnering with executive leadership teams as well as tech teams on strategic projects to create sustainable value makes him the champion of Innovation, which he teaches in this course along with the ethics of Artificial Intelligence.
  • CEO Semio, VP AI LA

    Dr. Ross Mead is the co-founder of AI LA and founder and CEO of Semio. Ross received his PhD with a dissertation work focused on socially assistive robots, specifically, on the principled design and computational modeling of fundamental social behaviors (such as speech, gestures, eye gaze, social spacing, etc.) that serve as building blocks for automated recognition and control in face-to-face human-robot interactions. His classes on the state of AI is obviously a very special moment of our training week!
“Doing this bootcamp five days straight with guidance definitely is much more valuable than what I had previously done before. It adds a lot of value to have someone helping you and asking any questions that you have real time you don't need to send someone in and wait for it.”
- Andre Cunha / Digital Innovation Manager, Nestlé
“It is 10 times better than any online training. I love the way it was designed, the way the exercises were made. It's very intense, but the fact that we can learn AI and code at the same time with great instructors is so important.”
- Longtao Wang / VF
“It really got me connected with the other participants in the course and lent a human element to a very technical subject.”
- Sophy Lee / CTO, HopSkipDrive
“Well-organized and very engaging!”
- Siyao Hu / Enterprise Data Science Analyst, City National Bank
“The improv exercises & storytelling were just enlightening!! And delivery was first rate.”
- Nilesh Tiloda / IT Program Director, Disney
“It exceeded my expectations, and it's made me realize that, despite not having a technical background, I can actually switch careers into ML, because we did hands-on exercises that made ML seem approachable.”
- Krishi Sharma / Mobile Developer

Upcoming Workshops

Out of an abundance of caution, and following the advice of public health officials, our team has decided to postpone upcoming in-person workshops and training in March and April. We will be following the lead and respect the hard work of health professionals to help contain and slow the spread of COVID-19.

Kinestry makes the safety and health of our clients and community our top priority, and while these cancellations are unfortunate, it’s necessary to ensure the safety and health of our community.

Our team will be organizing AI and Human-Centered Design webinars in the coming weeks and months. We appreciate your understanding as we support and work together during these trying times. Sign up to receive updates on upcoming online training and workshops.
