Inspirit AI is now offering AI Scholars Live Online, an experiential AI program delivered online through live video classes

Inspirit AI | August 13, 2020

As a result of the pandemic, as schools adapt to virtual teaching, high school students have had to reconsider their extracurricular plans. Inspirit AI, a pre-college Artificial Intelligence education program developed and taught by graduate students from Stanford and MIT, is now offering AI Scholars Live Online, an experiential AI program delivered online through live video classes. This program offers an opportunity for students to participate in a fun and rewarding program from the comfort of their homes this fall. Students receive personalized instruction online to learn to apply AI to a socially impactful project in a field of interest such as healthcare, sustainability, and robotics. This past summer, over 600 students participated in the program, hailing from places around the world like the Dominican Republic, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, and Vietnam. They learned about cutting-edge AI concepts in small classes with a 4:1 instructor-student ratio. Students then applied their AI knowledge to socially relevant projects such as modeling the COVID-19 pandemic and assessing algorithmic bias in the criminal justice system. They also engaged in college and career workshops preparing them to apply to Computer Science programs at leading U.S. colleges.
