This past summer, over 600 students participated in the program, hailing from places around the world like the Dominican Republic, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, and Vietnam. They learned about cutting-edge AI concepts in small classes with a 4:1 instructor-student ratio. Students then applied their AI knowledge to socially relevant projects such as modeling the COVID-19 pandemic and assessing algorithmic bias in the criminal justice system. They also engaged in college and career workshops preparing them to apply to Computer Science programs at leading U.S. colleges.
“These students are our future, and with the power of artificial intelligence, they will move our future in a positive direction,” said Artem Trotsyuk, an Inspirit AI instructor pursuing a Stanford PhD in bioengineering, working on combining AI and bioengineering tools to improve wound-healing outcomes.
