About MKAI and the AI Advancement Project

MKAI, a partner-business of The SkillsHub:MK collaboration, connects diverse minds to deliver impactful community-led projects that make artificial intelligence (AI) more inclusive and accessible.

The SkillsHub:MK will be the place where employers in the MK area can work, learn and network side-by-side with education providers, industry experts and learners. As such it will provide a high-tech professional learning environment primarily focused on skills development in AI and automation.

The MKAI Advancement project is founded on the principles of practical, interactive and inspiring learning. It aims to deliver skills development that are learner-driven and blended with an approach that offers intuitive, relevant content. The training sessions are delivered in both face-to-face and in virtual formats.

Action-driven business hub

The aim is to establish a high-tech professional learning environment focused on skills development in AI and automation. A place where employers can work, learn and network side-by-side with education providers, learners and industry experts to help SMEs handle the impact of AI on their business.

By creating a focal point for employers wishing to maximise the potential of AI, the SkillsHub:MK will provide both physical and virtual spaces that facilitate collaboration and benefit from cutting-edge training, expertise and equipment.

By bringing minds and voices into the AI conversation, this action-based learning offers the chance to learn from mistakes and experiments in a safe, commercially sensitive environment. To ask questions, provide perspectives and contribute ideas that challenge the status quo – the community will engage in a vibrant conversation.

The SkillsHub:MK will be known for having given birth to some of the greatest innovators of our time. Over time, it will become the catalyst for inward investment in MK and, as a direct result of the SkillsHub:MK, we will increase engagement of AI across business in Milton Keynes.


Regular invitations to potential funders and investors – success stories will make the SkillsHub:MK the place where AI will meet current and emerging priorities for the city and beyond.
