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.
Together We Change The World
Learn in community
The learning of the future increasingly takes place in communities. We connect a global community of AI students.
Social impact projects
You can use AI to solve social problems, such as climate change, education, disease diagnosis or local problems in your city, but it can also be misused.
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.
Early in 2018, we set in motion the AI Saturdays program, starting as an inspired group of friends learning about Deep Learning in a basement in Barcelona (Spain). We followed courses together, exchanged impressions and saw the potential of teamwork learning AI. We opened up a Meetup group to invite 40 more people and in 24h we had 500 requests…
Saturdays.AI was born.
Shortly after finishing the first AI Saturdays Barcelona edition, we opened the 2nd community in Tarragona (Spain). We were a small group of people learning AI together with a purpose: building social impact projects, always open sourced to the world.
Since then, we have never stopped growing.
Our colleague Christian, one of our students on the first edition in Barcelona and later mentor in Tarragona’s community, returned with an idea to his hometown Guayaquil, in Ecuador. No longer, we opened AI Saturdays Guayaquil and Saturdays.AI became intercontinental.
At the same time, several cities such as Madrid, Monterrey and many others joined in.
We became global with the opening of communities in more than 15 cities in one year: Madrid, Almería, Sevilla, Monterrey, Alicante, Quito and Hermosillo. By June 2019, we were advancing the opening of Lima, Santiago de Chile, Bogotá and Milano.
Besides, AWS, Bitbrain, Ensitech, 4YFN and Shugert joined the community to help us continue expanding AI Saturdays around the world and democratising AI.
This year the world is hit hard by the Coronavirus crisis, but our community continues its activity thanks to the AI Saturdays online.
In March we issued a challenge to fight the COVID crisis with AI, taking in many projects that had real impact.
This year sees the birth of our largest and most global edition ever created, AI Saturdays LATAM, with a selection of 60 students and mentors from different communities.
Our students are becoming noticed: Jeremy Howard mentions Pedro in his fast.ai courses, …
In the second half of the year we expanded our community and reached out to companies, universities, teachers and colleges through our new programmes FridAIs and AI4Schools. By this time, we had already opened in Murcia, Asturias, Córdoba and Dubai.
In June 2020, we launched our podcast in Spanish Language, covering the implementation of AI in different fields.
Earlier this year, we opened our online community to connect all our different local communities. It is a space where we can engage in discussions, raise our concerns, share personal projects, look for job opportunities and take our initiatives forward in a collaborative way.
We also launched our first free courses on Python and Data Science, so that anyone in any professional field could get started in the world of AI.
