AI/Machine Learning
Research Bootcamp


We live in a world where AI can play games, create ‘art’ and talk to you. But what is AI, really? And how can we harness its power for good?

This virtual 6-week university-level camp taught by MIT and Stanford engineers for 8th – 12th graders starts from the basics. Students are first introduced to the mathematics behind various AI, machine learning and deep learning models and then taught various data preprocessing techniques and how to train their own complex AI models from scratch. By the end of the camp, students will have acquired the basic skills needed for an entry-level data scientist and machine learning engineer position.
For their midterm and final project, students work in teams of 3-4 and engage in cutting edge interdisciplinary machine learning research either in conjunction with a university or independently, in fields such as medicine, digital humanities, economics and linguistics. Upon conclusion of the project, students write and publish their research papers online and present their research posters to university professors in the annual MehtA+ Machine Learning conference. Students who successfully complete the camp will receive a certificate.
