The Ambassador Program is an initiative to promote education in Data Science, Big Data, and Data Analytics leveraging Cognitive Class content. From an ambassador’s perspective, it’s a way to jumpstart their offerings on these popular areas of technology.

Cognitive Class Ambassadors

Ideal Ambassador candidates are:

  • A university, college, or other educational institution;
  • A company in the Technology Education field;

  • An institution managing one or more of the above.

What are the benefits for an Ambassador?

Through this program, an Ambassador can (at no cost):

  • Leverage existing Cognitive Class self-paced courses to build new curricula to be taught online or in a classroom setting;
  • Participate in a training bootcamp;
  • Access Cognitive Class lab resources (VMWare, Docker, Cloud);
  • Access real big data;
  • Work on real use cases with social benefits (alignment to the UN goals);
