Do you want to get hired by companies that build flying cars, build expertise in Perception for autonomous robots? Or partner with the healthcare world and bring Artificial Doctors into hospitals? Do you want to help send an autonomous rover to Mars? Or completely disrupt an industry using Artificial Intelligence?
Well, these are what I call cutting-edge jobs, and if you want a cutting-edge job you're going to need cutting-edge skills.
Do you have them yet?
If not, there might be a good reason...
Joining cutting-edge startups require advanced skills, but most online courses stick to the mass market fundamentals.
Convolutions, Neural Networks, Python, OpenCV, YOLO... Those are essential skills to learn when you start. But will they be enough to have you build autonomous rovers in space?
There are a gazillion platforms helping engineers to get started, but but happens "after" it? Beginners are taken care of, but who takes care of you? Maybe you feel like you outgrew some platforms and stopped learning anything new. Maybe you're feeling like there is no place built for you, that most of it is mass market, general, and that from now on, you're on your own.
The road doesn't stop after beginning, it only begins. There is a giant mountain to climb, with advanced, rare, and valuable skills.
Let me show you what the technical road ahead could look like:
These topics are what cutting-edge companies implement. They are what's listed on job offers, they are what researchers work on, they are what the future needs.
But how can you train on so advanced topics? Where can we find easy-to-get explanations? On topics that are industry relevant? Where can we be sure to not only avoid being left behind, but also lead the cutting-edge industry?
Think Autonomous helps engineers and companies build autonomous tech systems by focusing on the advanced aspect of AI and Computer Vision. We don't teach the basics, we teach the advanced. We don't do general, we do specialised.
When you join Think Autonomous, you are in the only place working 24/7 to help you becoming a cutting-edge engineer. So how does it work? What are you supposed to do to "go cutting-edge"?
Let me show you 3 simple steps to get started...
Example project on LiDAR Object Detection (3D Deep Learning)
I was able to transition from consultant to Perception Engineer for autonomous shuttles. It didn't take years, nor a Ph.D, field experience, or moving out to the Silicon Valley.
But it did require passion, initial skills, and a well-crafted plan. We can't help just anyone become a self-driving car engineer, but if you already have a coding background, some knowledge in Artificial Intelligence, and want to create cutting-edge AI technologies, then we may be able to help you.

Too many engineers stay stuck in jobs they don't care about, or don't like, and wonder if they really exploit their potential.
Maybe, you are in the same situation. We start our careers with an engineering diploma, motivated as nobody else. But quickly, things change. We join consulting, thinking of limitless opportunities, but we end up pressured to take any project we fit in. We waste years of our careers on Powerpoints and Spreadsheets.
We engineers seek passion. We are here to solve problems, and to help humanity move forward. When I started in self-driving cars, I felt passion for the technology. I didn't have a desire to save human lives, but contributing to it, and seeing my impact on society definitely improved things.
If your motivation is in relationship with autonomous tech, then let me show you some engineers who took Think Autonomous courses and read the free Daily Emails, and what they thought of it...
Autonomous Cars and Drones Engineer 🇲🇺🇺🇸
"I am Yudhisteer from Mauritius and I've been searching for self-driving car courses for a long time.
I discovered Jeremy's courses after someone posted a video of an Image Segmentation algorithm in Paris and I was completely baffled by it.
It was based on a paper dated only a few years back and it was impossible to find a tutorial online to explain how to apply it.
I enrolled on that day itself, and using Jeremy's guidance, I taught my gold car to detect ego and adjacent lanes.
Years later, after taking several of Jeremy's courses, I successfully got an internship as a Computer Vision Engineer in an Autonomous Drone Delivery startup in NYC!
I always wanted to work in the autonomous vehicle industry, but I never thought that what we learned in his courses could also apply to the Drone industry."
Autonomous Vehicle Intern at IAV Gmbh 🇩🇪
"I have been a subscriber for too long. December 1st 2020 to be exact. I've read every email, the ones that I understand really well and the ones that I have no clue about the topic they discuss.
Recently, I used the Think Autonomous material to negotiate my salary, learn to say "no", get interviews, rework my resume, and of course, upskill technically.
In 2023, I have been learning a lot about LiDARs and sensor fusion from Jeremy's courses, and thanks to these, I got a new internship for Autonomous Vehicle Engineers, followed by a thesis at a self-driving car company.
Some of Jeremy's tips really made a difference, and I am where I am standing today thanks to him."

We do many things differently than the others. Most of our courses are very short, just a few hours, rather than month long programs, we're entirely project based, and we implemented a job search system where we only teach courses that provide cutting-edge jobs.
But our biggest differentiator is the cutting-edge experience we provide!
Here are 5 commitments we take to provide a unique experience:
Commitment 1: We have an Immigration Policy
Commitment 2: We update our courses frequently
Commitment 3: We have DLCs
Commitment 4: We give you the research secrets
Commitment 5: We pass the Einstein Test
Begin with Step 1, the rest will be taken care of.
