Inteligencia Artificial  ·  News of the day

The Chair promotes this course for people interested in learning artificial intelligence and applying it in projects with social impact.

Saturdays AI is a non-profit organization with a long history of courses aimed at training in artificial intelligence through teamwork and learning-by-doing methodology. More than 3,000 people have been trained in this formative cycle during the last three years. Lima, Barcelona, Alicante, Dubai and Guayaquil are some of the cities that have hosted the initiative. In October, the first edition will be held in the city of Castellón.

The course will be held between October and February at the facilities of the Universitat Jaume I (UJI). It will be held over fourteen Saturdays, divided into two phases. First, through a practical methodology, students will solve artificial intelligence challenges to acquire a knowledge base. In the second phase, with the help of mentors, in small groups and in a collaborative way, they will apply everything they have learned to start designing and developing a project with social impact. To end the cycle, the Demo Day will be held, a closing event where students will have the opportunity to present their projects to various invited companies in the sector.

"This course is an excellent opportunity to train in the field of Artificial Intelligence, using tools highly demanded by the industry, in a collaborative environment where all participants can learn and teach their peers."

Óscar Belmonte, director of the Cuatroochenta Chair


Bringing AI closer to everyone

Registration is now open for all interested people. There are 30 places and the registration fee is 200 euros. The organization Saturdays AI offers scholarships and discounts of 10% for all UJI students. If you want to know more information you can contact the organization by email at

A convolutional neural network (CNN) model capable of detecting drifting boats at sea to save lives and a brain-computer interface (BCI) that allows people with disabilities to control their devices through brain signals are two examples of the more than 200 projects that Saturdays AI students have developed. The ultimate goal is to integrate artificial intelligence to improve people's daily lives.

"Participating in Saturdays AI is a springboard for research, working in companies in the sector or starting their own startup."

The first action of the Chair​

The Saturdays AI course is aligned with the main objective of the Cuatroochenta Chair, which is to create artificial intelligence solutions focused on people. It represents an opportunity for people from different fields to collaborate to develop projects where artificial intelligence provides solutions to current social challenges, such as population ageing, climate change or early detection of diseases. In addition, the Chair wants to collaborate with one of the purposes of the organization Saturdays AI: to bring artificial intelligence training closer and make it accessible to all people.

The Chair thus joins one of the aims of the Saturdays AI organisation: to bring artificial intelligence training closer and make it accessible to everyone.
