What we're about

Welcome to the NOVA School of AI. I am your Dean, Michael Ryan. We are now a single group for both the old Leesburg School of AI and Fairfax School of AI, and will be hosting most meetings in the Reston or Sterling area.

• Our School of AI is open to anyone willing to either learn or teach.

The following was written by the previous Dean of the Leesburg School, but I'll keep it up for now as it is short and summarizes the goals of the School of AI well.


Mission Statement “Our mission is to offer a world-class AI education to anyone on Earth for free. Our doors are open to all those who wish to learn. We are a learning community that spans almost every country dedicated to teaching our students how to make a positive impact in the world using AI technology, whether that's through employment or entrepreneurship”

I am part of Siraj Raval's team. Siraj is on a warpath to Inspire and Educate Developers to Build Artificial Intelligence. As part of his vision, I look forward to helping foster a learning environment that is built on the following School of AI Values
1. Embrace the Weird
2. Inspire and Educate
3. Data Driven Optimism
4. Rapid Experimentation
5. Be Frugal
6. Choose Love, not Fear
7. Draw the Owl
