We are a community on a mission to make AI accessible to anyone.

We connect the ecosystem of experts and companies to create social impact.

Together We Change The World

In the context of the 4th industrial revolution, AI has the potential to yield the most significant productivity increase in the history of our civilization. At the same time, this fast change is likely to change the structure of work and leave many people behind.
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.

Fostering diversity

At Saturdays.AI we believe that AI provides a set of tools that everyone should have access to. We hold that diversity enhances creativity. 

Our Mission

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. 

01/2018

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 Tarragona. 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. 

07/2018

Shortly after finishing the first AI Saturdays Tarragona edition, we opened the 2nd community in Tarragona. 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. 

AI Saturdays Tarragona

09/2018

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.

2019

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.

2020

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.

2020

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.

2021

In March this year, we opened our Online community to connect all our different local communities. It is a space where we can start discussions, ask our questions, share personal projects, look for job opportunities and take forward our initiatives in a collaborative way.
