Empowering Lebanese people through education and job opportunities in Artificial Intelligence
We are a Lebanese non-profit organization working since 2018 on enabling everyone to have access to the tools and knowledge to apply Artificial Intelligence. We are proudly the largest applied AI community in Lebanon.
What Inspired Us
As AI jobs are in high demand, Beirut AI wants to make tangible change possible to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Our vision is to enable Lebanon to become the largest centralized AI Hub in the Middle East and North Africa region, with a prospering ecosystem of local AI projects and startups
How We Help
We host various events, including our AI Bootcamp, our AI Weekend, hackathons, and university workshops. Through our Membership Program, we also provide our members with the chance to network and meet different AI enthusiasts and experts, helping expand AI in Lebanon and the MENA region.
Why Support Us
As the world races towards equipping its development with Artificial Intelligence knowledge, Lebanon is lagging in AI and if it does not invest in its youth, professionals, technologies, and even university programs, Lebanon will lose its edge. Furthermore, Lebanon has endured and is still suffering from several crises, including the recent economic depression, a massive explosion in Beirut’s port back in August 2020, political instability, and the COVID-19 global pandemic, all of which are leading to unemployment among the Lebanese youth and the disruption of many organizations’ functioning. Consequently, many students as well as professionals or job seekers are having difficulties in investing in their future to learn new skills and to be able to find better opportunities and build their career life.
1) A high rate of unemployment
2) Few university programs that offer Artificial Intelligence degrees
3) Insufficient application of technology
How Can I help?
By gathering volunteers who are AI leaders, instructors and even our team, Beirut AI establishes several programs that help our community in Lebanon to align with AI by giving them access to the tools & knowledge in this area. Such programs are Bootcamps, AI Weekends, free Workshops & Hackathons, etc. Through your donation, you will help us to unite the force for a good AI ecosystem in Lebanon and to help our community find better opportunities and skills to enter the market or organizations to develop its technology.
