An Advanced Program for AI Creators

Programmers Leading the Global Revolution 

The AI field has become one of the central engines of the high-tech industry and the flagship of global economic development. Many startups are emerging in the field and are looking for AI developers. Large high-tech companies are also investing heavily in the field and recruiting the best programmers for it. Artificial intelligence is changing the world, and its impact is expected to grow even more in the years ahead. Software developers in search of a challenge are eager to dive into the field, aiming to contribute to the revolutionary wave, enjoy the exciting professional challenges, and benefit from the different compensation levels associated with it. To do so, one must learn the unique way of thinking required for Machine Learning development, which is different from programming in other fields, to become acquainted with the tools and technologies in the field, and to experience hands-on the process of constructing and training Artificial Neural Networks. All of this will be done during the program. 

This program is part of Google’s commitment to make AI technologies accessible for everyone, in cooperation with the industry, that will allow people to grow and develop innovative technologies that will solve complex challenges. 

About the program

This is a focused and highly practical program for experienced programmers, aimed at providing the foundational knowledge necessary for integration into teams developing AI systems in the industry. The learning process in this program will be dynamic and fast-paced, involving extensive programming both in-class and at home with the support of experienced professionals. 

The program includes lectures from knowledge experts, from Google as well as other companies together with open-source code projects and interfaces of AI services such as Gemini and Vertex AI. 

Participants will gain fundamental insights into Machine Learning, become familiar with various AI applications, and will receive a foundation for continued self-study and development in the field. We will cover models, algorithms, techniques, and key tools for developing AI models and integrating them into software systems. 

Within the program’s framework, we will learn how to train deep neural networks using large amounts of data and how to evaluate their performance. We will experience hands-on on how to use popular development libraries such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, NumPy, and Pandas. Also, we will become acquainted with well-known AI models architectures like Convolutional Neural Networks and Transformers. While learning in this program, participants will also learn how to make AI work with end devices using TF Lite and how to deploy steady and fast AI services through Google Cloud Platform. The program will delve into several fronts of AI applications in the industry, such as Large Language Models (LLMs), pattern recognition in tabular data, Computer Vision, and Reinforcement Learning.

FAQ
  • How much does the program cost?

    The program costs 27,850 ILS (including VAT) 

    As part of the program, we provide incentive scholarships. Scholarships between 60%-94% will be given to participants who are found to be suitable and eligible for the scholarship, including participants from underrepresented populations in the high-tech industry, who wish to integrate and work in the studied field for the first time. 

    Furthermore, considering the security situation,  

    Unique scholarships of 94% will be given to participants and residents of evacuated settlements in the south and north of the country. 

    • To ensure high chances of success in the program, eligibility for the scholarship will be examined after the candidates’ success in the professional tests and personal interviews. 
    • Those interested in the scholarship will be required to apply for the scholarship as well as to issue documents and certificates for themselves and their family members. These documents and certificates will be required at advanced stages of the screening process. 
    • The scholarship committee examines each case individually. An answer will be given at the end of the screening process. 
    • Living expenses scholarships for the duration of the training period will be given in certain cases, according to the recommendation of the scholarship committee. The scholarships vary between programs and depend on the socio-economic status of the participant. 
    • Payment of the full tuition fee or its relative part is due only upon official admission to the program. 
    • There will be the option to pay in installment, in subject to the terms and conditions
