Dear MECH/IND students

Please see the 5-day AI summer school below.

Dr. Nakamura

Hello,

I’m an organizer of the 4th NYU AI School, requesting to share this with your students please. This is a free, in-person, 5-day AI summer school for undergraduate students, especially those identifying as minorities and other underserved populations. We also encourage non-CS majors and those without programming experience to join, with special tracks for their benefit!

We’ve already received some applications from students at your institute in the past so we’re reaching out again to ensure the message reaches everyone.

Applications are open to the 4th NYU AI School and we’d love to have students at your institute participate in the free event for early undergraduates. I would really appreciate it if you would share the attached blurb/poster with students:

The NYU AI School is a week-long in-person* summer school on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Participants will learn the basics of AI and ML from experts, get hands-on experience applying it to images and text, and explore career paths in the field. We encourage students with and without a programming background to apply for the event, and prioritize those who lack institutional resources to study AI/ML!

Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis with the deadline on April 6th, 2023.

*with measures for switching to an online event,  subject to COVID guidelines in March

We’re really excited to host the next generation of talent and welcome participation from your institution. Feel free to shoot any questions or comments my way or to nyuaischool@gmail.com. Thank you!
