Approachable training in state of the art technology for the classroom and business

Engaging Keynotes, Breakout Sessions and discussion facilitation with purpose 


To accommodate the influx of requests for AI training, Gabriel compiled all his existing knowledge into a crash course AI 101 workshop.

This workshop assumes no prior experience with AI and is designed to get you and your team up to date with developments in Artificial Intelligence and is updated weekly to account for recent changes and updates.

The half day workshop explores the complexities and potential of the latest generation of artificial intelligence. Participants will examine the ethical, business and academic implications of this technology and gain a deep understanding of its capabilities and how they will affect you within the next year. These workshops are designed to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively integrate this technology into their teaching and business environments.  As an example, all the copy of this website and many of the accompanying images were created using AI.  

Up to 25 attendees per session.
