Pre-College Artificial Intelligence

Pre-College Artificial Intelligence*

The Pre-College Artificial Intelligence program provides high school juniors and seniors with a strong interest in computer science with the opportunity to utilize AI to address problems of probabilistic and numeric nature. Students will have the opportunity to work with Carnegie Mellon faculty, staff and researchers who have been leaders in Artificial Intelligence since the field was invented at Carnegie Mellon in the 1950s. Students will attend AI-based lectures, in-depth introductions to ongoing AI research projects and field trips to local companies who specialize and execute AI-related work.

 *A three-week program, from June 30 - July 22, 2018 

 

Curriculum

The curriculum will comprise a series of topical lectures and demonstrations, and time to work on hands-on AI research projects with societal implications. Students will work closely with Carnegie Mellon faculty and graduate students to apply machine learning techniques to real world problems and datasets. With the recent launch Artificial Intelligence studies at the School of Computer Science, this is an excellent opportunity for students to gain more knowledge about the field.

Students will also interact with residential counselors to receive mentoring and assistance with personal growth and development. Over the weekend, there will be field trips, as well as meaningful interactions with industry sponsors so students can learn about career opportunities.
