Reviews from mentors
Vladimir Vasiliev
Head of Data Research at Sberbank
For me, this is a volunteer, but enjoyable activity. Here I can transfer my knowledge in creating IT/AI products that, I hope, will help the guys. I love being able to switch away from my day job to see what a wonderful generation is growing up and appreciate how quickly they will catch up and surpass us in everything related to technology. What is now considered innovation is already a part of life for children, with which they grew up. Therefore, I have high hopes for the new generation and I am sure that an interesting future awaits us.
Is this paid?
No. The AI Academy is a charity project aimed at increasing opportunities for the development of schoolchildren and the realization of their talents. Participation in the project as a mentor is your social contribution to the future of the project participants and the AI field, since many of the mentors have already decided to develop in it.
Who will I work with?
Only those AI Academy participants who have already demonstrated a high level of skills and/or motivation to develop in the field of AI can receive mentoring support. Many of them are finalists of specialized competitions or graduates of educational programs of the Academy of AI, are already developing their projects or want to take the first steps towards a corporate or academic career.
What will I get?
We guarantee cool merch and a letter of gratitude; we are ready to invite you to events and become the hero of media publications as experts for upgrading your personal brand. But we believe that you will get much more: an increased sense of significance and relevance, full awareness of your experience and knowledge, a flow of fresh air from new ideas and opinions, and perhaps motivated “hands” to join your team.
