MLIS’ Services to Industrial/Commercial Partners:

C-Level Executive Education

MLIS provides AI training modules for C-Level personnel and Senior engineering staff. The training is specifically tailored to the needs of our collaborating partners and delivered by our experienced PhD level personnel.  Training modules broadly falls into two main categories:

Introduction to AI for non-technical executives:
A concise 2-3 day workshop intended to provide executives with a straightforward understanding of AI/ML capabilities within their specific domain of operation (e.g. Healthcare, Finance or Advanced Manufacturing). Such workshops usually include future scoping where we delve into relevant case-specific scenarios and ask “How can I better my business using ML/AI technology?”

Specialized training for senior engineering staff:
with training modules ranging from 20-80 hours, we provide senior, experienced, R&D staff with the opportunity to deepen their understanding and capabilities in all AI sub-fields (e.g., Reinforcement Learning, Few Shot Learning or Generative Adversarial Networks). These training modules are modified in content, depth and length to the learner’s specific needs and emphasize real-world case-studies and scenarios.

AI Business Advisory Services

AI technology is an exciting, yet imperfect and still evolving, technology (e.g., algorithmic biases).  Commercial companies and institutions are constantly required to integrate/improve their ML/AI processes and technologies (e.g., HMOs, Insurance companies etc.). For companies seeking to better understand and/or improve their use of AI – we create an ad-hoc consultancy expert team.

The MLIS expert team will assemble on-demand (drawing from multiple Technion faculties as needed), and thoroughly review, over a period of several days, the inner workings of the company. Following the review, The MLIS expert team will advise on a ML/AI integration/betterment strategy.
