Discover AI is a virtual program that provides students with a project-based introduction to computer science, machine learning, data, artificial intelligence, and tech careers through the lens of societal and ethical impact. In addition, students get access to AI industry leaders and are guided through a roadmap to cultivate a future career in the AI industry.
What are both the positive and negative implications of AI technology on society? How can (and does) AI affect communities in today's world? Through research, discussions, and reflection, you will explore the intersectionality of AI with other fields and articulate your own mindful perspective of AI. The program is facilitated at no cost to students.
Students that complete the program will emerge with actionable next steps in pursuing an academic or career path in AI and the opportunity to continue in the following semester to our second program, Apply AI and direct mentorship from industry leaders in the AI and tech industry from companies like Google, Capital One, Facebook, Slalom Consulting, Accenture, Pearson and more. At the end of the program, students receive a Certificate of Completion and access to the AI4ALL Changemakers community with additional resources, ongoing support and mentorship.
It's available for undergraduate first-year students, sophomores, and juniors with all coding and/or computing/AI levels, including everything from no experience to advanced. If you're a computing major, the program is a great supplement to your existing coursework. If you are not, we welcome you as well! If accepted, you will have the opportunity to learn more about artificial intelligence in a safe and thoughtful environment that offers you the chance to consider AI as a future career option and as a presence in your major industry/discipline. We recommend that students without a coding background take the first four modules for free here at EdX before the program begins. 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.
The ten-week program starts on February 24 and includes both synchronous meetings on Fridays from 3:30 to 5:30 pm as well as asynchronous instruction.
