We want to thank the thousands of you who joined us last week in the
Learn AI, a Cloud Pak Series education event. It was great to see so many of you participating actively in the hands-on labs, scheduling time with our experts, and engaging with instructors and leadership speakers.
We were truly humbled by the number of people who reached out to let us know how much they appreciated this education opportunity. We created this event to help build important skills needed now and to make IBM’s resources available at no cost to the world during this trying time. We wanted to make an interactive learning experience, as we are spending so much time in front of screens, not just for work, but to connect with loved ones.
If you want to take a lab you missed or share this education opportunity with others, Learn AI will be available until July 15.
From @Seth Dobrin’s kick-off to Emily Glassberg Sands' keynote to the very last session, there are over 12 hours of education that anyone can take advantage of.
Are you leading a group of data scientists or AI practitioners?

What you do will make a big difference to the well-being and performance of your team today and in the future.
