Help create a bright future
Since our founding in August 2019, we have launched an inter-university programme, initiated the creation of teaching materials for secondary vocational schools and grammar schools, laid the foundations for a close-knit community of Czech and foreign researchers based in Prague, and launched a free online course to educate the Czech public on artificial intelligence.
Our mission is certainly not over. We play an active role in the development of Prague’s innovation ecosystem. We inform, educate, and organise events for both experts and the public. We promote the successes of Czech scientists and companies at home and abroad. And we openly discuss the benefits and risks of AI.
We are an initiative that came into being at the behest of prominent academic institutions. Behind every step, there is the expertise and experience of our founding and company members. In the long run, our goals are beneficial to all Czech citizens. Hence we call upon foundations and donors who are not indifferent about the future course of our country to participate in our vision.
One of the goals of our organisation is to build and develop a solid membership base built on mutual respect, trust, and the sharing of valuable information, knowledge, and networks. We are thus creating a healthy entrepreneurial and competitive environment, which is beneficial for the entire country.
Membership in prg.ai provides entities with the possibility to co-decide the course of our programmes, initiate new projects, and actively participate in the development of the Prague AI scene. They gain access to promising employees and experts as well as various opportunities, be it in research and development, business, participation in projects, or promotion of their activities.
We are an open and inclusive organisation. Companies interested in membership are assessed on the basis of product and service maturity, the erudition of key staff, current and planned contribution to the Prague innovation ecosystem, and adherence to our values of openness, trust, togetherness, courage and excellence. A yearly membership fee ranges from 50,000 to 200,000 CZK depending on the number of employees.
We created an inter-university programme prg.ai Minor, which enables Czech Technical University and Charles University students to attend the best courses in artificial intelligence and build relationships with key players of the Prague AI scene.
We initiated a collaboration between Machine Learning College and the City of Prague, which brought about the AI Academy project. Its goal is to create teaching materials on AI for secondary vocational schools and grammar schools.
We are building and managing a multi-disciplined community called Prague's International Researchers. Its goal is to facilitate networking, information and experience exchange, and and make living and working in Prague more attractive.
We organise events for people of different professions and backgrounds who have a shared interest in artificial intelligence, especially in its ethical, legal, and regulatory impacts on society and the world around us.
In cooperation with the Czech Technical University and Charles University, we are preparing a programme to offer PhD students interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to gain real business value.
In cooperation with the Czech Technical University, Charles University and the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic, we launched the Czech version of the free online course Elements of AI for the public.
In co-production with Red Button EDU, we are creating the Deus ex machina series, which sheds light on the current possibilities and limits of AI's practical use in various fields.
We were at the birth of the first Czech student online hackathon, which was a reaction to the pandemic situation. Its second year focused on finding solutions for innovations of the outdated educational system.
