Gen AI University founder Darby Rollins recently hosted a live session announcing major updates for the company’s future direction. As someone who’s been following Darby and Gen AI University’s journey from the beginning, I wanted to recap the key highlights and takeaways from the call.
Darby kicked off the session acknowledging the official rebrand from AI Author to Gen AI University. This change reflects the expanded vision beyond just books into comprehensive AI education and training.
Darby explained that in light of the rapid acceleration of new AI tools and information, it’s become near impossible to keep up with it all. Rather than jumping from trend to trend, Gen AI University aims to focus more on mindset, adaptation, and integrating AI in a way that elevates human creativity.
The core will be continuous skill development through microcourses, coaching, and community.
Modeled after the university system, Gen AI University members will be able to progress along tailored learning paths from beginner to advanced. They've partnered with expert Kelly Tenney to develop these educational programs.
The first program relaunching under the new brand will be an updated version of their signature 7-day book challenge. This will incorporate new AI advancements like Claude AI from Anthropic which Darby has been using more himself.
While staying focused on the core process of identifying your “why,” Gen AI University wants to open up possibilities beyond books into workflows, automations, and finding the right tools for each creator’s specific needs.
Darby emphasized the importance of keeping your hand on the steering wheel and being the human driving innovation alongside AI. Those who know when to adapt, change, and tweak strategies will continue to succeed.
