AI Knowledge Bases and Business Development

In yesterday’s blog, I wrote about how people in prison could use our website, Prison Professors Talent, to begin building a knowledge base that drives Artificial Intelligence. I use this skill every day to generate new business opportunities. 

Some people in prison know who I am, but others do not. I am Michael Santos and I served 26 years in federal prison. While inside, I prepared in ways that would contribute to building businesses upon release. Most of my businesses relate to what I learned in prison. Anyone can learn by going through our course, Preparing for Success after Prison, which is available in education or through the reentry affairs coodinator. The SENTRY code is PSAP.

People who go through that course will learn what leaders taught me about using time in prison to prepare for success. I had to learn to think differently. Those lessons made all the difference for me. I am confident that they will help others, too. That’s why I created the course.

Although people who qualify will earn time credits by completing the course, anyone who participates will learn more about the importance of memorializing the journey. They can document their preparations for success by opening a profile at Prison Professors Talent. Simply send an invite to In the email, request a copy of Release Plan 2024. Our nonprofit will send a copy. No charge for this service.

We want more people to learn how to prepare for success, and to emerge successfully. The harder they work, the better prepared they will be to function in the new world that relies upon Artificial Intelligence (AI). I encourage each person to begin building a knowledge base, one that shows who you are and how you add value.

Your personal knowledge base will become a growth generator for you. Businesses, big and small, are leveraging AI to understand their markets better, streamline operations, and enhance customer experiences.

One key application is in market analysis. AI systems can process vast amounts of data, spotting trends and patterns that might go unnoticed by human analysts. This insight allows businesses to tailor their products and marketing strategies more effectively to their target audience, resulting in increased sales and customer loyalty.

Similarly, if you build your own AI system by documenting your story on Prison Professors Talent, AI will help you open opportunities in the same way that I do. AI is instrumental in personalizing the customer experience. By analyzing customer data, AI can provide personalized recommendations, enhancing customer engagement and encouraging repeat business. I highly recommend that you begin building your personal knowledge base today. It will become an asset for you when you transition into society. You will leverage this asset to create income opportunities. 

I never ask anyone to do anything that I did not do while I was in prison, and that I’m not still doing today. Before you can start earning money by advising others on how to use AI, you’ve got to build your own knowledge base. Then, you can show others how to harness the power of AI. You can create a knowledge base for companies. The AI driving knowledge base can lead to deeper insights, improve operational efficiency, and offer enhanced customer experiences, paving the way for sustainable growth and success.

When you help companies make money and save money, you can command fees that will generate your personal income. You will not have a limit on what you can earn. First, you’ve got to build your knowledge base. Get started today.

Critical Thinking:

If you’re memorializing your journey on Prison Professors Talent, consider responding to the following question in your journal:

  • In what ways will the personal knowledge base you build help you use Artificial Intelligence to earn a higher income upon release?

Remember, we believe in you!
