Neiron is an AI production and consultancy agency that opened up in Tbilisi at the beginning of 2017. The company is fully staffed by Georgian AI specialists and founded Swedes nationals is an official partner of Swedish AI giant Peltarion. The company works with both Georgian and international clients that wish to outsource AI related work.
The initial course will reach out to university students (mainly physics and mathematics) wishing to build a career in AI as well as professionals wishing to move into that exciting field in order to further their careers and build a stronger and more attractive CV. Shortly afterward the intention is to offer courses to public and private employers wishing to ready their management and other key staff for the AI revolution.
