AI have a dream

General description

Artificial Intelligence will exceed humans in reasoning and intelligence.

Did this sentence terrify you? Or did it trigger your interest?

If it was the latter, you are the one we’ve been looking for! Join us in a series of classes and practical sessions, where we will explore all the fascinating things AI can do.

And all this while visiting the beautiful city of Ghent, the City of the Three Towers. Its mighty medieval centre will definitely amaze you. Maybe just as much as exploring Ghent by night, because as you might know, Belgium is home to a very famous tradition.

We can't wait to let you taste our Belgian specialities such as fries, beer, waffles and our well-known chocolate.

If you're not afraid to take a Turing test, don't hesitate to apply for this Summer Course in Ghent!
