What people are saying about MKAI

To be a part of the MKAI community is such a privilege. Every person in the group is very active, and I learn new things every day.

I recently spoke at an MKAI event - and it couldn't possibly have been a better experience for the participants (or for me!).
Dr. JT Kostman
CEO & AI Psychologist
MKAI virtual events run so smoothly. It's just like chatting with old friends.
Joaquin Lopez Herraiz
Associate Professor
Gaining knowledge is great, but discussing crucial topics while sharing learning resources with the community is precious. At the MKAI, we aren’t only learning new things but documenting and sharing our story, and, in that way, helping others find their place in shaping our future. And that’s where I finally unearthed my true self. By staying curious, I found a new home, a place where I feel fully supported empowered to thrive together.
Aleksandra Hadzic
Head of Insights and Analytics at MKAI
It was a great pleasure for me to work with MKAI on an AI Ethics and Responsible AI webinar. Excellent people from practice and academia together, a wonderful organization!
Christoph Lütge

MKAI is a great platform for knowledge sharing, holding some truly amazing events where the host is awesome, guests are very cool, with participation from such a diverse set of people. The platform truly fosters an environment in which knowledge can be discovered, validated, adopted and applied.
