We are a community on a mission to make AI accessible to anyone.
We connect the ecosystem of experts, individuals and companies through communities to create social impact.
At Saturdays.AI we want to make AI accessible to everyone through the formation of communities.
We have designed our flagship programme, AI Saturdays, suitable for anyone that wants to start in AI. It takes students 12 to 15 Saturdays to learn ML techniques and end up creating their own project in AI. Everything with the guide and support of the community during the whole process.
We also offer courses exclusively for schools and businesses that want to lead in AI and we organise other initiatives such as talks, our own podcast or events in our community to bring AI closer and motivate the creation of real projects.
CEO & Co-founder
I co-founded Saturdays.AI so I could learn Deep Learning while building impact projects. I currently serve as president and help with the daily operations and the strategy in order to fulfill our mission. I’m a Data Geek with extensive management experience in industrial and technology companies. I’m also a MBA Graduate from HEC Paris and Wharton, with a track-record as an entrepreneur for mission-driven initiatives, and a part-time professor of Applied AI. Passionate about how technology empowers everyone to achieve great things, I’m on a quest to build a better tomorrow for my 3 children.
Chairman & Co-founder
I co-founded Saturdays.AI back in 2018 willing to learn Deep Learning within a community of makers. More about me: I am a self-taught developer and former strategy consultant. My previous projects include an underwater augmented reality experience and a wearable to facilitate the navigation of the visually impaired from which I was nominated to the MIT Under 35. I’m actively involved in the Barcelona Entrepreneurship Scene through Startup Weekend, Global Shapers and StartupGrind among others.
EU Manager & AI Saturdays Madrid Ambassador
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, but I have Spanish nationality. As Europe Manager, I oversee the operations and expansion in Europe. I am a tireless proactive and multidisciplinary learner, with good communication skills and always looking to be happy in what I do. I feel fulfilled by helping and teaching others. With great ability to work in a team and excellent leadership skills, experience and professionalism, I am always ready for new opportunities.
Global Teams Lead & AI Saturdays Madrid Ambassador
I lead the global team, provide support to the communities and also strategic advice. My great passion is the human brain, although I am a computer engineer by training and I have worked on several AI projects related to health. I have always been fascinated by psychology and neuroscience and believe that the complex interactions of our brain shape our thoughts, memories, feelings and motivations, and ultimately make us human. I like to talk about mental well-being in the modern world, habits, brain-computer interfaces, education, learning, productivity and creativity. You can read me at smartsapiens.net and recommend a good book 😉
