Paving the way for a more human-centered AI.

AI Academy was founded in 2017. So far we have trained more than 12000 individuals and teams to harness the power of artificial intelligence for more productivity and better results.

The vision

In 1879 Carl Benz built the first vehicle powered by a gasoline engine. The car was born.
The car revolution started as an engineering marvel and evolved to change our society.
That revolution started with an engineer and continued thanks to automotive entrepreneurs, designers, marketers, salesmen, policymakers, lawyers, and insurers.

We are at the same stage with AI. The AI revolution is at a stage where countless opportunities are created for people who want to use it as a tool to change their industry and their career. So far, AI has been a field mostly understood and used by data scientists and tech entrepreneurs.

We believe that AI should be a tool that everyone can use. A tool that empowers people to build what they want and need. What would happen if everyone could understand AI and had access to the tools to build AI? Our mission is to give you these tools and find out.

Our principles

AI should be designed for humans.

Humans’ needs and goals must drive AI innovation. Whether you want AI to make your life easier or maximize your company’s revenues, your goals should inform why AI gets developed and deployed.

AI should be designed by humans.

The people building AI technology must reflect the diversity of those who will use it. Everyone must have the opportunity to study it, understand it, use it, and shape it to be a force for good.

AI should be designed ethically.

AI ethics shouldn’t be a “nice to have” or a PR move. To get there, we need to design AI being mindful of its potential impact on our natural, social and economic systems.


We are not actively hiring at the moment. However, if you’re a mission-driven person who wants to make a dent in how people will use the most powerful technology of the century, feel free to send a spontaneous application.

what our alumni SAY ABOUT US

I really loved the fact that the course is product-oriented. It's not as many that you can find online. The course leads you to think about something you can craft and then sell. It pushes you to think about your project to eventually leave a mark. The connection between the usage of AI to make your own product. This is what makes the difference.
Giorgia Dello Russo
Client Support Officer
First, I think Gianluca himself, is very passionate about the topic, and his teaching method is very engaging. The second thing is the practical side of this. So you get to deliver a project at the end and we were guided step by step from the beginning. I can directly put it into use in my work. And the last point is the supportive team.
Garon Jinlong Yu
Service Designer
Today you can very easily buy a course that it's, like, nonsense. They teach you stuff that you can find for free somewhere else. But here you realize that AI Academy does all this research and they are always up to date with the new tools, the new concepts. That's what you look for in education. You just want to know that you are getting the right stuff.

It felt like a very non-judgmental environment and I think that's a very good way to learn with other people in that kind of setting.

"My wow moment was when I discovered the procedure of validating prompts, because, to be honest, nobody talks about this."
