Course overview

Innovate and Automate with the Power of AI Agents

In the next 12 months, AI agents will start to completely transform the workforce. AI models won’t just write things for us — they will make decisions for us, perform entire projects in our browsers, and handle our communications.

Agents will shift everything we thought we knew about how AI works — again. We’ve been working with generative AI since 2019, and this is the biggest shift we’ve seen since the original GPT-3 was released in 2020.

This course will keep you relevant in this new world by developing evergreen practices working with and designing with agentic patterns, frameworks, and tools like ReAct loops, multi-agent systems, graph-based methods and beyond.

We will teach you principles to guide you in targeting most promising agentic applications and provide direct practice building actions into existing AI frameworks, based on our first-hand experience building early versions of these tools in production. And we will be joined by CEOs of AI Agent services MultiOn and Promptly.

You will walk away understanding how the AI ecosystem will evolve, with applications to different industries and use cases. You'll also be able to demonstrate your competency through hands-on demos you will build with no-code tools.

Along with live class sessions, the course includes 1:1 coaching sessions and flexible office hours to ensure each student gets deeply personalized support in designing their agentic applications.

Who is this course for


Innovation and Strategy Leads who need think outside the box and push the boundaries of your organization's strategy.


Product Managers who need to lead and collaborate with technical teams on generative and agentic products and features.


Designers who need to understand what users will expect from generative and agentic products.
