About this event

In partnership with your school, AI4ALL is inviting eligible students to apply to the Discover AI program for Fall 2021. Discover AI is a virtual no-cost program that offers a hands-on introduction to computer science and artificial intelligence, ethical issues surrounding AI (artificial intelligence) implementation, and tech careers.

Students that are accepted into the program will get the opportunity to:

  • Get a hands-on introduction to AI and its applications to a variety of fields, ethical issues surrounding AI, and tech careers
  • Receive a Discover AI Certificate of Completion
  • Get support in learning how you can forge your next steps on a possible AI career and academic journey

We invite college students at our partner schools to attend and meet an AI4ALL representative to learn how College Pathways programs can be a first step in pursuing an academic or career path related to artificial intelligence.

 

To attend session:

Please RSVP to one of the info session dates here on Eventbrite. After, you will receive an email with the Zoom link to the address that you registered from.

The sessions will be hosted virtually on Zoom and students will have the opportunity to ask questions about the program and meet an AI4ALL representative.

 

Student eligibility:

AI4ALL programs are designed to bring together and highlight voices that have been historically excluded, and that will lead and shape the future of AI. We aim to serve the following students, especially those at the intersection of two or more of these identities:

  • Indigenous Peoples, Black, Hispanic or Latinx, Pacific Islander, and Southeast Asian
  • Trans and non-binary; two-spirit; cis women and girls
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, and queer
  • Students with a demonstrated financial need (for example, students who receive financial aid)
  • First-generation college student

The program is open to all Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors.

Discover AI is designed to accommodate both students with and without prior computer science or AI experience. No program fees.
