Making a positive world impact through technology and diversity
The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has opened its lab doors with a program aimed at young women who are in 9th grade at the time of applying. Founded by Olga Russakovsky and Fei-Fei Li, female leaders in Artificial Intelligence, the three-week, residential program provides both broad exposure to AI topics through faculty lectures and industry field trips, as well as in-depth experience within a research area through hands-on projects. Mentoring and career/personal development sessions with faculty, researchers, and graduate students further enable personal growth and an opportunity to explore career interests in AI. We are committed to serving students of all financial backgrounds.
This program ran for three summers as Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory's Outreach Summer Program (SAILORS), but it has since been renamed to Stanford AI4ALL, signalling a new collaboration between the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and education nonprofit AI4ALL. AI4ALL is a nonprofit working to increase diversity and inclusion in artificial intelligence education, research, development, and policy. Both SAILORS and AI4ALL were founded by Dr. Fei-Fei Li (Stanford University) and Dr. Olga Russakovsky (Princeton University), two world-renowned AI researchers dedicated to expanding access to their field.
AI4ALL partners with Stanford and other top universities to educate high school students and increase diversity and inclusion in AI. Students participating in AI4ALL programs will divide their time between studying the curriculum designed by AI4ALL and partaking in lectures and research projects at the partnered universities. Stanford AI4ALL continues to be based in the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, with a new, updated curriculum developed by AI4ALL. To learn more about AI4ALL, visit their website.
