Veterans in Artificial Intelligence

Veterans in Artificial Intelligence (VIAI) is a network of United States Veterans who solve industry challenges using data science. VIAI is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing veterans into the civilian workforce by equipping them with tools necessary to implement machine learning and artificial intelligence best practices. 

VIAI partnered with IT industry leaders across the globe to establish VIAI’s 102-hour intensive data training and mentorship program. This program is free to qualified veterans. All veterans will receive a free laptop and the virtual machine resources necessary for training success. 

Graduating members of VIAI will be placed in entry-level, mid-level, and advanced data science positions. Employment opportunities may be remote or on-premise. Hiring relationships for VIAI have been established with a dozen Fortune 1000 commercial organizations and U.S. government agencies. Companies seeking to partner with VIAI may request more information using our contact form on

Applicants do not need a degree of any kind to qualify for this program. Candidates are required to have an aptitude for mathematics, programming, and problem-solving to qualify. 

Our belief is that disabled veterans deserve to be well-compensated professionals in civilian society and to never be marginalized as a demographic or dependent on subsistence. Members of our network -- often through their discipline learned in the Armed Forces -- possess a focused drive to succeed. 

Solicitations for VIAI nonprofit advisors, program trainers, mentors, and donors launched September 2019. This program will formally launch online and in-person with the support of IT industry providers and partners throughout the United States on October 1, 2020. Alternatively, this program will begin once $1.5 million has been raised to scale operations and implementation. 

Please donate to support U.S. Veterans in entering the workforce with the skills and resources necessary to thrive in today’s global economy.
