Mentorship by AI practitioners: Learn from outstanding professionals and researchers in the field.
Change the world: AI is everywhere. Help create the future by learning how to use AI to solve problems you care about.
Mission and Goals
- We aim to educate and excite students about the field of artificial intelligence by providing exposure to a variety of AI topics. Students will not only go in-depth on some of the cutting-edge ideas in AI but will also explore the potential of AI to improve society.
- We aspire to help students foster personal growth through career development workshops and mentoring.
- We work with the Stanford AI Lab to provide students a hands-on experience with real, significant research projects.
- We aim to build a close-knit community and encourage interest among underrepresented populations in the field. Program attendance will be limited to reflect these goals.
AI education & inspiration: Participants attend online lectures with Stanford faculty in CS, AI, and related fields.
Personal growth: A key part of the program is small group mentoring sessions with AI faculty and senior AI researchers. Participants also attend online lectures by experts in career and personal development and social events with Stanford AI graduate students.
Hands-on experience: Participants engage in small-group research projects led by graduate students and post-docs in Computer Science and AI. The research focuses on the societal impacts of AI and how AI can be used to address some of our world’s most pressing problems.
