What problem
does the simulator solve?


Many companies are missing obvious opportunities to leverage AI in their products.

Others struggle to turn opportunities into working solutions – 87% of AI projects don't reach the deployment stage.


In this simulator, you will learn how to turn ideas into working AI solutions.

You will complete four AI projects. Along the way you will learn the essential skills of AI product manager:

  • Recognize AI opportunities in your products
  • Transform ideas into AI solutions that bring value to the business
  • Assess the potential of AI to add value in specific scenarios
  • Structure knowledge about AI and make it applicable
  • Communicate effectively with AI professionals

"Learning to manage AI products is possible only through practice. However, to be entrusted with such a role, a product manager needs experience. It's a loop.

That's why we built the simulator. Our goal is not just to impart knowledge but to provide you with hands-on experience and prepare you for the reality.

This simulator represents a decade of practical experience in creating AI solutions, packaged into a two-month interactive educational program."
