My mission is to democratize practical AI skills so professionals in any industry can leverage AI to transform their business.
Hi, I'm Armand!๐Ÿ‘‹

Welcome to the community! NoCode.ai was founded in April 2021 as a place to educate, inspire and help achieve our AI goals one hack at a time. In the last decade, I witnessed many startups, organizations, and even small businesses adopting AI solutions. But I quickly learned that there was a lot of confusion about how AI was being used in business and how to get started. I wanted to create a space where users could learn about new technologies and AI tools without being overwhelmed by technical jargon.

I led product management of several No-Code AI tools working with the best designers and developers. Those tools are used today by thousands of practitioners.

I decided to start NoCode.ai to explain how I like to approach and simplify AI.

In this community, I would also like to share techniques and principles to deploy responsible AI in production.

A bit more about me

I'm a Spaniard living the dream in California. I work as a Director of Data Science and Machine Learning at IBM. Iโ€™m also a founder, investor, tennis professor, and father of two! It's been quite a journey since I started working in the AI field, see here some of the highlights:


  • Director of Data Science & AI Elite at IBM: I currently manage a super talented team of ~100 data scientists worldwide solving the most complex AI implementations. We use No-code AI tools but also a lot of hardcore techniques.
  • Program Director Product Management at IBM - Machine Learning tools: I hired and managed a team of Rockstar product managers creating an award-winning Machine Learning platform called Watson Studio and Watson Machine Learning.
  • Principal Product Manager at IBM - Data Science: from a whiteboard idea to thousands of monthly active users, I was the Product Manager leading the AI revolution in the Data Science space at IBM and turning wild aspirations into amazing products.
  • Product Manager at IBM - Data Science Community: my first product management role was to improve our community effort and connect with the practitioners, which turned into a huge success with over 5k user group.
  • Data Scientist and instructor at IBM: I delivered weekly workshops and consulting sessions in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Here's where I learned how to simplify AI and get companies productive with No-code tools and low skills.
  • Data Science intern at IBM: I participated in the prestigious Extreme Blue program and got introduced to Predictive Analytics for Business. I worked on a data generator and developed a use case for Fraud Analysis for Banking...using No-code!
  • Data Science intern at Vodafone: In charge of 2G/3G network quality in the Barcelona area using geospatial and antenna performance data.


  • AutoAI: I believe we created the most powerful & intuitive AutoML tool in the market that prepares data, finds features, selects algorithms and tunes hyper-parameters to deliver the most accurate pipelines for any project.
  • Data Refinery: a visual tool to create data preparation pipelines in a spreadsheet-like interface and capable of handling big data sets.
  • Visual Recognition and Natural Language transfer learning tool: lead the development of a tool to label images and text and re-train IBM Watson models.
  • New SPSS Modeler: the most popular visual flow interface to build Machine Learning pipelines without coding.
  • IBM Watson Studio and ML: end-to-end AI platform that brings together all the tools and capabilities. Code and No-code tools in one single environment for ultimate flexibility.


  • ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿถ First and foremost... I love spending time with my family!
  • ๐Ÿฅ˜ Foodie, I love Spanish cuisine.
