AI Readiness Training

Two days to make AI your best asset.

Early Bird, up to 2 months before the start of the course.

Understand artificial intelligence and integrate it into your business

Artificial intelligence is no longer the exclusive domain of major technology companies but the driving force behind the next wave of digitization.

Many companies are already using machine learning to solve problems that are too complex for traditional programming and the pace of research suggests an even greater change in the coming years.

Thanks to the availability of online tools, such as Google and IBM, as well as Open Source projects, this technology is now available for all companies.

A common mistake is to consider AI as a purely technical problem. Like digitization before it, artificial intelligence will change the way we work and design our products and business processes. Anyone involved in the construction or commissioning of software, whether internal or consumer software, must understand AI and how to apply it, in order to reinvent their business in light of these new possibilities.

Equipping you with these skills is the purpose of this training.

Our trainers have a solid theoretical knowledge and practical experience of AI-related projects and integrations. They accompany you so that your company can be “AI Ready”.

What you will experience during the “AI Readiness Training” seminar

Our “AI Readiness Training” seminar is based on methods developed within the impactIA foundation, with the help of our 21 multidisciplinary experts who work to make artificial intelligence a positive impact on work.

In this interactive seminar, you will learn to:

  • Develop a vision of the potentials and challenges, as well as a general knowledge of AI.
  • Identify on a daily basis the possible integrations of AI in the different sectors.
  • Develop an agility of thought to understand the changes related to AI in a short – medium – long term vision.
“To become an integrated AI company, everyone must be AI literate, from the product manager who thinks about the problem to the developer, data specialist and production team.

Once you have that, you can start incorporating AI into almost any business problem.”

Rajen Sheth

Senior director of product management, Google Cloud

This seminar is for you if:

  • As a manager, entrepreneur or manager, you want to make artificial intelligence a differentiating force.
  • You want to improve the efficiency of your organization, optimize your processes and develop innovations.
  • You want to set up AI projects.
  • You manage projects that involve AI or would like to integrate AI, internally or externally.
  • You manage multidisciplinary teams.
  • You would like to deepen your experience and knowledge in the field of AI.
  • As a consultant or trainer, you want to deepen your methodological knowledge.

No prior knowledge of artificial intelligence is required for the AI Readiness Training seminar.
For technical teams (IT developers, UX,…), we offer an “AI Ready” Masterclass.

“The AI training given by impactIA was a real “eye opener” on the potential of AI for Swiss SMEs.

Dosed correctly, with very concrete examples. I highly recommend this training to any entrepreneur and professional who wishes to actively take advantage of the opportunities of this revolution to implement it in their company.”
